Ken,
 
I recommend using the loading criteria set forth by AASHTO.
 
Refer to www.aitc-glulam.org for information regarding the design.

Subject: timber bridge deck standards

I have a client who would like me to design a bridge using steel beams and a timber deck.  Does anyone know of any good references for the deck design?
Thanks in advance,
Ken
