    This study examines the influence of curved, steel, I-girder bridge configuration on girder end reactions and cross frame member forces during seismic events. Simply-supported bridge finite element models were created and examined under seismic events mimicking what could be experienced in AASHTO Seismic Zone 2. Bridges were analyzed using practical ranges of: radius of curvature; girder and. Overview. In a plate girder bridge, the plate girders are typically I-beams made up from separate structural steel plates (rather than rolled as a single cross-section), which are welded or, in older bridges, bolted or riveted together to form the vertical web and horizontal flanges of the some cases, the plate girders may be formed in a Z-shape rather than or: Beam bridge.

Tables 1 and 2 summarize the LRFD equations for moment-load distribution factors for slab-on-girder bridges and multicell box-girder bridges as well as the applicability conditions.

Inthe NCHRP project was initiated to develop design provisions for curved bridges in the AASHTO load and resistance factor design (LRFD) format. These provisions were intended to be incorporated into the specifications to extend the specificationsâ cov- erage to curved bridges.

• Horizontally curved bridges with or without skewed supports and with a maximum L/R greater than where L is the span length bearing to bearing along the centerline of the bridge and R is the radius of the centerline of the bridge cross-section. Skewed and Curved Steel I-Girder Bridge Fit 1 NSBA Technical Committee, Fit Task ForceFile Size: KB.

Horizontally curved, steel girder bridges are often used in our modern infrastructural system. The curve in the bridge allows for a smother transition for traffic, which creates better road travel.

However, some of the disadvantages of horizontally curved bridges are that they are more difficult to analyze, design, and sometimes construct in. Abstract. The horizontally curved composite girder bridges have excellent properties, such as quick construction, good seismic performance, saving construction formwork and convenience in spatialwhich have greatly promoted the application of such by: 7.

The V-load method is a widely used approximate method for the analysis of horizontally curved I-girder highway bridges. Previously, this method had been proven valid only for noncomposite I-girder bridges with radial supports. Thus, a study was made to extend the method to composite I-girder bridges with any general support configuration.

In order to check the validity and accuracy of the NFHCBSL computer program written by to simulate horizontally curved steel box beam behavior, a semi-circular two-span continuous horizontally curved steel box beam was fabricated and tested under two point loads at midspan of the beam.

The test was carried out using hydraulic testing machine with capacity of kN, as shown in Fig. : Bashar Abid Hamza, Ahmed Riyadh Radhi, Qais Al-Madhlom.

This paper focuses on Load distribution factors for horizontally curved composite concrete-steel girder bridges. The finite-element analysis software“SAP” is used to examine the key parameters that can influence the distribution factors for horizontally curved composite steel girders.

ADVERTISEMENTS: This article throws light upon the top two theories adopted for distributing load of bridges over the girders. Courbon’s Theory: In Courbon’s theory, the cross-beams or diaphragms are assumed to be infinitely stiff.
