CURVBRG - A COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR ANALYSIS OF CURVED OPEN GIRDER BRIDGES

CURVBRG is a computer program for the structural and stress analysis of open girder (I-section) bridge superstructures. The bridge may be of essentially arbitrary shape in plan, and the girders may be of variable cross section along their length. Diaphragms and crossframes may be taken into account, and changes in form of the structure as its construction progresses may be considered. Deflections, stress resultants and stresses for static loads, support settlement effects and moving live loads are determined. Comparisons are made between computed behavior and that observed in model tests.
