there were 8 fully loaded sand trucks

linear. The 8 trucks were placed in several different configuration. I believe the one shown had them packed as close as possible together. Data was taken with the trucks parked on the bridge (and no other data on the bridge). This live load was actually larger locally than the design loads.
Carol Shield
I don't think you can get enough trucks onto the center of the span to do that. These trucks were all over the "legal limit", i.e. they would have had to be permitted. So under normal circumstances you would not get traffic induced curvatures larger than the thermally induced curvatures.
Kaydee J Kirk
Attendees: Any questions for Ben, Duane, or Lauren please add at any time here. Thanks.

Jeanne Kling
Much of the success of the !-35 bridge can be attributed to all parties following an ideology called Vested. Especially the expedited timeline. Does MnDOT consider using this model on current projectys
Jeanne Kling
It has been documented in a white paper found on VestedWay.com and in a book

Mark and Kristy: Sounds like we winding down and probably ready to close the webinar. Unless anything roles in.
