Resum
During the assessment programme of Brazilian roadway bridges, it was noticed that two girder-slab reinforced concrete bridges, with cantilever girders on extremity spans, were a common structural solution adopted 40 years ago in Brazil. Particularities intrinsic to these systems like significant displacements expected on cantilevers associated with soil embankment settlement in bridge entrance can take to a sudden change in slope grades near its ends, provoking sometimes high impact factors.
