Although bending stresses often govern the requirements of the bridge section, sufficient shear capacity must be provided too. Shear stresses near the support are strongly influenced by damaged expansion joints and/or differential settlements between the bridge deck and the approach road. The latter is taken into account in this theoretical investigation to evaluate the dynamics associated with the shear load effect caused by heavy trucks and how it relates to the length of the bridge span.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2011 Elsevier Ltd.||Keywords:||Bridge;Shear;Vehicle;Dynamics;Expansion joint||Subject LCSH:||Shear (Mechanics)
