CONTINUOUS BEAM DESIGN FOR RAILWAY LOADING

The file name is DC-S51. This computer program designs continuous steel beams of not over 5 spans, either composite or non-composite, and subjected to railway loadings. Input includes dead loads, railway loadings, allowable stresses in steel and concrete, slab data, span lengths, beam spacings, minimum plate thickness and variation in values of assumed moments in inertia. Output includes shears, moments and reactions at each tenth point of each span, beam size, cover plates and cut-off points, shear connector spacings, flange horizontal stresses in plate girder design, fatigue stresses of base metal and stiffener spacing.
