THE STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOR OF STEEL AND CONCRETE BOX GIRDER BRIDGES

THE DEFORMATIONAL BEHAVIOR OF SINGLE AND MULTICELL STEEL AND CONCRETE BOX GIRDERS IS STUDIED BY REFERENCE TO SPECIFIC EXAMPLES WHICH INCORPORATE VARIATIONS IN WALL THICKNESS, LOADED LENGTH, STIFFENER SIZE, DIAPHRAM SPACING, SECTION SHAPE, CURVATURE, AND SUPPORT POSITIONS. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SYMMETRICAL AND ANTISYMMETRICAL COMPONENTS OF LOAD IS STUDIED. DEFORMATIONAL STRESSES OCCUR UNDER SYMMETRICAL LOADING IF THE SUPPORTS ARE SKEWED, IF THE BRIDGE IS CURVED, OR IN MULTICELL SECTIONS. THE IMPORTANCE OF PROVIDING ADEQUATE RESTRAINT AGAINST DEFORMATION OF THE CROSS SECTION, ESPECIALLY IN STEEL BOXES, IS DEMONSTRATED. /AUTHOR/
