ON ULTIMATE STRENGTH OF HORIZONTALLY CURVED BOX GIRDER BRIDGES

Presented in this paper is an experimental and analytical study on the ultimate strength of the thin-walled box girder with the longitudinal stiffeners subjected to bending and torsion. An experimental apparatus for applying both the bending and torsional moments to box girder specimens was newly developed. Through this experimental apparatus, the behaviors up to the collapse and the ultimate strength of these thin- walled box girder specimens with the longitudinal stiffeners were investigated. An interaction curve for the combined actions of bending and torsion at the ultimate state of curved box girders were also proposed. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 864118.
