AASHTO Bridge L > 240'

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm dealing with a steel I-girder bridge where one span is greater than 240' (280' actual). However, the distribution factor limits the maximum span to 240'. 
 
Certainly there are plenty of typical steel plate girder bridges with spans > 240'. What is done to calculate the distribution factor for these bridges?
