Title: Moments in Composite Beam Bridges by Orthotropic Plate Theory
Author(s): Kuang-Han Chu and G. Krishnamoorthy
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 705-722
Abstract:The effect of the shearing force between the beams and the slab in a composite beam bridge was taken into account by considering the beams and the slab acting together as an orthotropic plate. It was found that beam moments computed according to the current highway bridge design specifications are on the conservative side.
