Paper Title:
Highway Bridge Load-Bearing Capacity Assessment Under Chinese and British Methodologies
  Abstract

The purpose of assessment of structures is to check their adequacy for specific loading levels and to identify those bridges that have an unacceptable risk of failure, either in part or complete collapse, under extreme circumstances of loading and material condition [1]. In this study, a comparison was made between new Chinese bridge load-bearing capacity assessment method and The British Highway Agency method. Load-bearing capacity assessment results were generated for bridges super structure and analyzed for moment and shear load effect. Also the study included a comparison of the main component of load-bearing capacity calculation, factored live load, factored dead load, and factored capacity. The comparison shows that the British Method produced lower moment and shear bridges carrying capacity factor than Chinese Method.
