The design and analysis of bridge is most critical due to standards and criteria. The bridge is widely used for transport purpose for heavy loaded vehicle. The safety as well as economy of bridge is important due to large amount of material and steel. This paper discusses comparative analysis of bridge for Trapazoidalbox girder and Rectangular box girder for economy using IRC and AASHTO code. The parametric study create model of bridge in SAP bridge modeling software. For result point of view consider heavy moving load. For comparative analysis using shear force, bending moment and torsion parameter. The AASHTO code are less value as compare with IRC code.The analysis is carried out using SAP bride modeling software
