EFFECTIVE BREADTHS OF STACKED FLANGE PLATES IN PLATE GIRDER BRIDGES

The effective breadths of stacked flange plates in various plate girders have been determined using the finite element method of analysis. Comparisons made between these effective breaths and those obtained from the Merrison shear lag rules for corresponding box girder flange plates indicate that, with the introduction of simple multiplicative factors, the rules could be applied to any girder having a practical arrangement of stacked flange plates.
