THE LONGITUDINAL BENDING BEHAVIOUR OF COMPOSITE BOX GIRDER BRIDGES HAVING INCOMPLETE INTERACTION

Details are given of a numerical study of the elastic longitudinal bending behaviour of composite box girder bridges in which the use of flexible shear connectors results in incomplete interaction between the slab and girder components. The results of the study provided background for the formulation of design rules included in the draft unified bridge code, and the rules are discussed in the light of these results. /Author/TRRL/
