SKEW AND ELEVATED SUPPORT EFFECTS ON CURVED BRIDGES. PROGRESS REPORT: THE DESIGN OF CURVED VIADUCTS

A STUDY OF 288 CURVED BRIDGE SYSTEMS, USING A MATRIX TECHNIQUE, HAVING VARIOUS COMBINATIONS OF SPAN LENGTH, RADIUS OF CURVATURE, NUMBER OF GIRDERS, AND SUPPORT ORIENTATIONS HAS BEEN CONDUCTED. THE ANALYSIS OF THE DATA, RESULTING FROM THE SKEW SUPPORT STUDIES, INDICATED THAT A SKEWED BRIDGE CAN BE DESIGNED AS A RADIAL BRIDGE. THE ANALYSIS OF THE DATA, RESULTING FROM THE ELEVATED SUPPORT STUDIES, INDICATES THAT THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN THE BEHAVIOR OF THE ELEVATED BRIDGE TO THAT OF A CONSTANT SUPPORT ELEVATED STRUCTURE. /AUTHOR/
