The pedestrian bridge saga continues... Is anyone aware of published standards for load-testing bridges or other steel structures? I am aware of the ACI 318 requirements for load testing, and of the need to load the bridge uniformly (as opposed to starting from one end) If there are any published protocols and criteria available, I'd like to know about them. Also, comments on acceptance criteria would be appreciated. Aside from "no visible evidence of failure at the design live load," are there any other criteria? Perhaps: "no measurable permanent deflection" after preloading to, say, 25% of the design live load? Thanks for all your help to-date, and thanks in advance for your responses to this request.
