It was found that, in very little effect on the global response of the bridge. general, magnitudes of curve to straight results are in the same order as the integral bridges. Therefore, the final con- clusion is that, as long as the support conditions are modeled Bearings at the Bents correctly, the same guidelines for modeling limitations are The purpose of this study was to determine if bridges with equally applicable to integral and non-integral conditions. integral and non-integral bents respond differently to curve effects.
