DESIGN OF CURVED I GIRDER BRIDGES

This document is an addendum to the original published Report No. 52, written in March 1973. The purpose of this addendum is to clarify certain misunderstandings in the design procedure and the basic assumptions that were made in developing these design aids. Some of the design aids that were presented in this report are a collection of previously approved data. Report No. 52, only gives the theory involved in developing the dead load design aids. An example problem, used to illustrate the application of these design aids, is also given in Report No. 52 and is discussed. A simplified procedure, which can evaluate the forces in curved girders is also presented.
