Abstract:Considerable research has been done in Europe on the design of webs and web-flange junctions under combined bending and shear, taking into account the interaction between various forces acting on the section. The available methods of design are summarized and reviewed critically. Designs that take into account the interaction of the forces and superpose the reinforcement required separately for resisting these forces are compared for two concrete box girder bridges.
