Abstract—According to the structural characteristics of steel-concrete joint section of WuSu Bridge, a 1:3 reduced scale test model was designed to study the static mechanical behavior of the steel-concrete joint section. The test model is loaded according to the serviceability limit state and ultimate limit state separately, the stress of each members of the control sections of the test model is obtained. As shown in the results, the load from steel is smoothly delivered to concrete through the steel-concrete joint section, the stress values of the test model are generally less than the permissible value of the material given by the standard. The load-stress curve shows that the structural materials are in the elastic stage when being loading. All these show the steel-concrete joint section of WUSU Bridge has sufficient security reserve, the design of the steel-concrete joint section meets the security requirements.
