NEW TYPE OF CONTINUOUS COMPOSITE STEEL AND CONCRETE BRIDGE

A new type of continuous composite steel and concrete bridge has been developed in the Bridge Section of the Department of the Main Roads, New South Wales, Australia. In this type of bridge, simply supported steel beams are connected without field riveting, bolting or welding in such a way that full continuity and composite action of concrete deck slab and steel beams is achieved. Ease of erection and weight saving in steel beams and consequently greater economy and the feasibility of longer spans are made possible in composite steel and concrete bridges. Design criteria are briefly described and illustrated.
