Curved Steel Girder Bridges
Curved Steel Girder Bridges illustrates the design of horizontally curved, continuous multi-span steel bridges. This module includes detailed calculations of a 3-span plate girder bridge and a 2-span box girder bridge. Structural design aspects covered in the examples include composite section properties, torsional stresses, erection procedure, slab casting sequence, moment resistance before and after composite action, shear resistance, cross-frame forces, centrifugal forces, superstructure vibrations and fatigue. DM5 is based on CSA Standard S6-14, Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code. Structural steel plates conform to CSA G40.21 grades 350A and 350AT.
