The dynamic and vibrational characteristics of bridge superstructures can be predicted through the use of predominant natural periods. It has been shown that the natural periods of vibration of skewed simple-span beam-slab bridge superstructures can be computed through the use of the appropriate multipliers given here, when the periods of vibration of the equivalent right bridge are known. The natural periods of vibration of bridges that have skew angles up to 45 deg have been computed. On the average, the reduction in the first fundamental period is at the most 10 percent and, for the second and third periods, this reduction can be up to 21 percent. /Author/
