Abstract:
Skew bridge decks, and especially those made of prestressed concrete, are subject to longitudinal and transversal displacements and horizontal rotations due to external forcese resulting from: (a) Longitudinal braking and earthquake forces, (b) Transversal wind, earthquake and centrifugal forces, (c) Shortening of deck due to shrinkage, variation of temperature and prestressing forces.
