It is important to be aware that a large number of structures were designed and built under a different legal context, some of them under pseudo-theoretical rules that, in some cases, have been in use for over 50 years. These structures are subject to very different loading conditions from their original operating ones, so it is necessary to study their behavior in service and under ultimate loads. Sometimes, the crossing of a special transport vehicle makes it advisable to analyze the structural response under these exceptional new loads.
