In this work, we studied the distribution capability and the influence of road surface, at different thicknesses on the load bearing capacity of the reinforced concrete slab of a bridge structure. Based on a probabilistic method, we estimated the probability of failure under the action of loads. The results of this study are presented using three design models.
