ANALYSIS OF A BOX FRAME WITH A UNIT LIVE LOAD MOVING ACROSS THE SPAN ON ITS TOP AND THE CORRESPONDING SOIL PRESSURE ACTING AT ITS BOTTOM

Design of a box-frame underpass for pedestrians or highway vehicles is described. The general moment equations are developed for such a concrete slab structure with the unit live load of locomotives and cars moving across the top span and corresponding soil pressures acting on the bottom of the frame. The method of slope deflection is used to analyze the box frame.
