Abstract : Procedures have recently been developed for the design of glued-laminated bridge decks and for steel dowel connectors. However, since most bridges are designed in accordance with the Specifications of the American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO), which consider only three different distributions of wheel load, the original design curves have been reduced here to even simpler equation form. Equations can be used when designing decks for ASHO H10, H15, and H20 trucks. These equations make it easy and fast for the bridge designer to compute moments and shears in glued-laminated decks.
