BOX GIRDER BRIDGE DESIGN-STATE OF THE ART

The information that will be presented herein will pertain to straight and curved steel composite box girder bridges of moderate span length (50-250 ft) that are utilized for highway interchanges. Although the general theories are applicable to larger structures, the design formulas that have been developed and will be given herein are only suitable for the conventional highway bridge. Among the factors discussed are geometry, load distribution, estimated curved girder forces, bending and torsional stresses, distortional stresses, and bracing as well as design specifications.
