THEORY OF BOX GIRDERS

This book, which discusses the basic problems which appear in box-girder analysis, introduces progressive methods and proposes ideas which challenge current concepts. It provides a basis for the design of both concrete and steel box bridges, and special attention is paid to stability problems, shear lag phenomenon, and to the problem of stress state arising in the web of a steel girder subjected to large concentrated loading. The various chapters of the book are as follows: analysis of box girders as thin-walled beams; analysis of box girders as folded-plate structures; curved box girders; load distribution in cellular structures; vibration and stability of box girders; stability problem of compression flanges of steel box girder bridges; box girder diaphragms; influence of actual physical characteristics of material on the behaviour of box girders; and some other methods of box girders analysis.
