CURVED BOX BEAM BRIDGE ANALYSIS

A finite difference procedure is used to determine the response of a single and multi span curved single box beam bridge with any number of interior diaphragms. The bending and torsional distortions as well as cross-sectional distortions are determined throughout the box girder. The forces that are determined include bending moment and shear, pure torsion, warping torsion, and bimoment. These forces, in addition to distortional functions, yield resulting normal bending, normal warping, and normal distortional stresses. The entire analysis scheme has been programmed for use on an UNIVAC 1108 computer, FORTRAN IV language.
