About the research

Research objective:

The purpose of this project is to develop techniques that were developed in Phase I to a broader set of covered bridge types that include but are not limited to a town lattice configuration and provide recommendations for improving the analysis of historic covered timber bridges, specifically the intersection and interconnection of lattice members, impact of classic arch behavior, and behavior and interaction of bolster beams and floor systems.
