The construction of large-span steel bridges in China has advanced dramatically in the last two decades. There are significant difficulties buried behind the large-scale building of orthotropic steel plate bridges in China in recent years. The most serious issues are fatigue degradation to the orthotropic plate construction and deck pavement durability. The structural anisotropy, complicated construction, and multiple welds of the orthotropic steel bridge deck are all features. Local tension and deformation are also quite complicated when a vehicle is loaded
