Abstract

The eccentric displacement of the bridge ends around the centre results from different soil properties at different ends of the bridge. This global variation of properties produces different stresses in the otherwise symmetrical integral bridge ends. The proposed parameter mG and behaviour model for taking this behaviour into account is presented. An estimate for the maximum length limit of a fully integral concrete bridge, 120 m, was also obtained from these analyses.
