FINITE ELEMENT SCHEME FOR BOX BRIDGE ANALYSIS

A finite element scheme for static and free vibration analysis of box bridges with orthogonal boundaries and arbitrary combinations of straight and horizontally curved sections is described. In-plane, bending and coupling actions as well as anisotropic element properties are included in the analysis. A variety of special purpose elements are developed to suit the behavior characteristics of thin box sections. The program has been found to reliably predict deflections and stresses for a variety of analytical and experimental test cases. /Author/
