BENDING AND TORSION IN ORTHOTROPIC DECK BOX GIRDER

ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES ARE MADE ON A SIMPLE SPAN, SINGLE CELL BOX GIRDER BRIDGE MODEL WITH ORTHOTROPIC DECK HAVING OPEN RIBS TO FIND AND COMPARE STRESSES UNDER STATIC LOADS. A METHOD IS PROPOSED TO FIND STRESSES IN THE CANTILEVER PORTION OF THE DECK. TORSIONAL STRESSES IN THE BOX CELL DUE TO ECCENTRIC LOADING ARE CALCULATED USING THE ANALOGY TO A BEAM ON ELASTIC FOUNDATION. FOR EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES THE MODEL IS FABRICATED FROM PLEXIGLASS WHOSE MATERIAL PROPERTIES ARE ALSO DETERMINED. /AUTHOR/
