Behavior Of Integral Abutment Bridge With Spring Analysis
Integral Abutment Bridges (IAB) are joint less bridges in which the deck is continuous and monolithic with
abutment walls, due to this continuity in the bridge the bridge have less expensive, esthetically pleasing appearance, safe
riding, economical in construction, prevent the corrosion.
To get a better understanding of the behavior of IAB in different situation, a comparative study is carried out on a typical
IAB and a simply supported bridge (SSB) of same geometry and loading conditions, and compares these bridges with spring
and without spring analysis at both ends. A total of three bridges were analyzed for this work by using Midas Civil Software.
