INTERMEDIATE DIAPHRAGM EFFECTS ON THE RESPONSE OF A PRESTRESSED CONCRETE GIRDER BRIDGE TO LATERAL FORCES

The main objectives of the research reported in this paper were to investigate the effectiveness of intermediate RC and steel diaphragms in PC, girder-slab bridges that are subjected to lateral load and to determine whether steel diaphragms of some conventional configuration are essentially structurally equivalent to cast-in-place RC diaphragms. The investigation included analytical studies and testing of a full-scale-model, PC, girder-slab bridge.
