... 16 MASH Railing Load Requirements for Bridge Deck Overhang Strain Gages To directly measure load distributions in the slab as well as to provide internal strain data by which LS-DYNA models could be calibrated, linear strain gages were installed on reinforcing bars at the cross section of locations deemed critical in the analytical program. Typically, strain gages were installed on transverse slab bars at the critical sections directly below the barrier or post specimen (Design Region A-A)
