Efficient Load Rating and Quantification of Life-Cycle Damage of Indiana Bridges Due to Overweight Loads

Efficient Load Rating and Quantification of Life-Cycle Damage of Indiana Bridges Due to Overweight Loads
The project aims at studying the relationships between, (i) overweight trucks, (ii) load rating and damage of bridges due to the overweight trucks, (iii) associated maintenance costs, and, (iv) the reduction is service-life due to damage.
