Resumen

In a proof load test, a load representative of the factored live load is applied to the bridge. Since the applied load is large, stop criteria are important. Stop criteria for shear and flexure are proposed based on existing codes and guidelines, laboratory experiments, and theoretical considerations. This proposal is verified with the results from pilot proof load tests. The result of this comparison is that the stop criteria are never exceeded, or that they are exceeded only in the last load step. The proposed stop criteria are thus not overly conservative for application to field testing. However, information about the available margin of safety is not always available, especially for shear failures, and will need further experimental validation.
