THE PROVISION OF REINFORCEMENT IN SIMPLY SUPPORTED SKEW BRIDGE SLABS IN ACCORDANCE WITH ELASTIC MOMENT FIELDS

THE RESULTS OF A THEORETICAL INVESTIGATION INTO THE PROVISION OF REINFORCEMENT IN TWELVE UNIFORMLY LOADED SKEW SLABS AND IN THREE SKEW HIGHWAY BRIDGES LOADED WITH THE MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT STANDARD AND ABNORMAL LOADINGS ARE PRESENTED. CONSIDERABLE ECONOMIES IN THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF STEEL REQUIRED IN A SLAB CAN BE OBTAINED BY USING AN ORTHOGONAL ARRANGEMENT OF REINFORCEMENT; THE RESULTING SAVING IN STEEL IS FOUND TO INCREASE AS THE DEGREE OF SKEW INCREASES. GRAPHS ARE PRESENTED FOR UNIFORMLY LOADED SLABS WHICH SHOW THE RELATIVE MOMENTS OF RESISTANCE REQUIRED FOR FOUR DIFFERENT STEEL ARRANGEMENTS FOR A RANGE OF SKEW ANGLES AND ASPECT RATIOS. IT IS SHOWN THAT THESE GRAPHS CAN BE USED TO GIVE A GOOD INDICATION OF THE MOST EFFICIENT STEEL ARRANGEMENT FOR SLABS SUPPORTING OTHER THAN UNIFORMLY DISTRIBUTED LOADS. /AUTHOR/
