THE USE OF GRILLAGE ANALOGY FOR THE ANALYSIS OF SLAB AND PSEUDO-SLAB BRIDGE DECKS

THE REPORT GIVES DETAILS OF COMPARISONS MADE BETWEEN EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS AND RESULTS OBTAINED FROM ANALYSES USING GRILLAGE IDALIZATION. COMPARISONS WITH 53 BRIDGE DECKS OF A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT TYPES ARE GIVEN AND THE EFFECTS OF ALTERING THE IDEALIZATIONS ARE DISCUSSED. THE COMPARISONS ARE MADE BETWEEN DEFLECTIONS, LONGITUDINAL AND TRANSVERSE BENDING MOMENTS AND REACTIONS. REFERENCE IS MADE TO A DESIGN BOOKLET WHICH GIVES RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE USE OF GRILLAGE ANALYSIS FOR PRACTICAL BRIDGE DECKS, METHODS OF CALCULATING THE TORSIONAL PARAMETERS FOR THE ANALYSIS AND A SET OF EXAMPLES FOR DIFFERENT TYPES OF DECK. /AUTHOR/
