Abstract
The traffic of special overloaded trucks (special permits) over bridges may create structural problems not only in the time of crossing but also in the service life of the bridge (cracking in concrete bridges affecting their durability, fatigue in steel bridges, etc.). Therefore, the owner agency responsible for a bridge network should look carefully at the maximum loads acting on the bridges and the problems they may cause according to their actual condition. This article presents the work carr...
