Large Scale Tests on Bridge Slabs Cantilevers Subjected to Traffic Loads

To improve the reduced available experimental data on the load capacity of full scale bridge deck slabs, 3 tests on a large scale bridge cantilever (10 x 4.2 m) were done. The cantilevers were tested under 4, 2 and 1 concentrated loads simulating traffic wheels. Neither of the tests attained the theoretical yield-line failure load. A brittle shear failure was observed for all tests.
