In the design of railway bridges crossing over roads or rivers, bridge height from the lowest point to railway level is sometimes restricted by the height of the road or the high-water level of the river. In order to satisfy these conditions, the authors propose the application of steel-reinforced-concrete (SRC) slab structures to floor systems of through-truss bridges. Since the behavior of this type of bridge had never been verified, this study conducts pull-load and dry-shrinkage experiments
