54 the experimental specimens, detailing requirements are This experimental program tested only a single beam line proposed. as a full-size specimen. The result should be verified by mon- itoring the response of a complete bridge. The analytical models do not accurately assess the effects SUGGESTED FUTURE RESEARCH of differential shrinkage between the deck slab and the gird- ers. Work needs to be done to create more accurate models. This experimental program tested only AASHTO I shapes. The effects of skew and seismic effects were not tested in Limited testing to verify positive moment connection capac- this program. Additional experimental work on seismic and ity for other shapes may be advisable. skew effects is advised.
