Abstract:
The rigorous analysis of bridge decks consisting of longitudinal girders, cross beams and deck slab is highly complex, since the cross beams and the slab contribute to a desirable load distribution over the entire system. The slab forms a continuous plate rigidity connected to elastic supports, namely the grid of cross beams and longitudinal girders.
