Recently, due to the increasing overloaded heavy vehicles and traffic volumes fatigue failures of steel highway bridges frequently occur. Therefore, it is important to decide rational fatigue design procedure which can reflect lifetime cumulative fatigue damage reasonably. In this study, cumulative fatigue damages are simulated for various bridge systems and traffic conditions. The AASHTO LRFD fatigue design procedure is reviewed and the current fatigue design loading format, in which a single representative truck is loaded regardless of bridge width, is found to yield inconsistent safety level. Improved loading format with rational design load level for fatigue design is suggested.
