Title: Effect of Supporting Piles on the Strress and Deformation of Reinforced Concrete Rigid Frames
Author(s): Toshiro Fukuyama
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 783-802
Keywords: bending moments; bridge foundations; bridges (structures); deflection; deformation; foundations; moments; piles and pile driving; reinforced concrete; rigid frames; shear; stresses; structural analysis; structural design; substructures
Abstract:Since the superstructure and foundation of a bridge work together in resisting external forces, a more accurate understanding of the properties of the whole structure should be achieved by analyzing superstructure and foundation together rather than separately. A method is developed with assumes that the ground is elastic and treats the foundation as springs located in supporting points of the superstructure.
