NON-PRISMATIC CURVED GIRDER ANALYSIS

The analysis of single and continuous span curved girders is accomplished by solution of the Vlasov equations using the finite difference technique. The solution by this means permits inclusion of point wise property variations and interaction of the vertical and torsional deformations. The solution of the two simultaneous equations gives deflections and rotations at each node point. The forces (bending moment, shear, pure torsion, warping torsion, and bimoment) at each of these nodes are then calculated using differences relationships. The entire finite difference analysis has been programmed for use on an UNIVAC 1108 computer, FORTRAN IV language. /AUTHOR/
