Model Test Study on a Single Diagonal-Span Arch Bridge with Curved Beam
Tong-Tai Bridge is a special-shape arch bridge with arch obliquely cross the curved beam. In order to validate the theoretical solutions and ensure the structure safety, model test is discussed. In this paper, the structural design, fabrication procedures and test method of the model are presented. Meanwhile, the finite element method is applied to analyses this special structure. Some experience of the structure construction is obtained during the practice process and the experimental results achieved are satisfactory.
