Title: Bridge Grids with Inegral Slabs--A New Anaytical Approach
Author(s): P.S. Dravid and C.L. Mehta
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 166-181
Keywords: beams (supports); bending moments; bridge decks; bridge (structures); concrete slabs; continuity (structural); loads (forces); models; reinforced concretes; research; structural analysis
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.
