In a paper presented at the First International Symposium on Concrete Bridge Design, Toronto, April 1967 (1), a numerical method was used for the analysis of skew bridges composed of a deck slab monolithic with two main girders and the method was verified by model testing. In the present paper design tables prepared by this method are presented, giving the values of the bending and twisting moments and the reactions in the girders due to uniform load and the influence coefficients for these stress resultants in simply-supported skew bridges.
