Different modelling schemes are used to analyse a box girder bridge, an I-girder bridge and a continuous bridge
using different types of element so as to identify the most suitable modelling technique considering solution accuracy, ease of modelling and computational accuracy.
But the longest continuous bridge
over water is only 24 miles, over a lake in Louisiana.

For a continuous bridge
, only one bearing support fixed can eventually restrict the girder against the longitudinal and lateral movements.

Such streamlining is a critical engineering detail for Illinois Tollway, an agency wise to maintenance costs and traffic disruption attributable to continuous bridge
It contains a continuous bridge
and a vehicle running over it at a constant speed.
The three-span continuous bridge
has radius of curvature of 178.49 m and is composed of five ASTM A572 grade 50 steel plate girders with an abutment skew that varies between 29[degrees] and 52[degrees] (south to north) relative to the traffic direction as shown in Figure 1.
Dynamic tests have been performed on a two span continuous bridge
for the verification of the proposed approach.
A steel design consisting of a well-balanced four-span continuous bridge
was compared to a six-span concrete bridge made continuous for live load.
The bridge is a 790-foot long, 42 feet 2 inches wide, 5 spans continuous bridge
with two exterior steel plate girders and three substringers.
