DESIGN DATA AND TRENDS OF CURVED BRIDGES
The purpose of this report is to present a summary of design data used for determining the stress distribution in curved girder bridge systems. This data is divided into two categories, depending on the bridge type, i.e., 1) Curved I Girders, 2) Curved Box Girders. The resulting data permits rapid evaluation of induced forces and diaphragm requirements. /FHWA/
