In general, the bridge dilatation shutters and their components are dynamically loaded structures and so, the fatigue strength for such bridge joints should be analytically evaluated during design process. Due to difficulties arisen in calculation of acting forces on individual components the bridge shutters were assessed in a real operation. In the article, there will be presented results and diagrams obtained from direct measurements of the time depending strain i.e. stress processes in the critical points for that bridge dilatation joint. In addition, the results obtained from measurements and fatigue strength evaluation will be also confronted with testimonials based on applications of standards.
