Application of the harmonic analysis in the design of slab and beam decks without inner diaphgrams

In the paper the sharing of the moving load among the girders of a beam and slab deck without inner diaphgrams is analyzed. Mutual shear force acting between the girders are found by means of the compatibility method. Simple...more

An Orthotropic Plate Model for the analysis of slab and box beam bridge deck

In the paper the sharing of the moving load among the girders of a beams and slab deck bridge is analyzed using an orthotropic plate model in which the flexural and torsional stiffness of the slab are neglected in comparison with...more

Influence of viscous phenomena and phases executive in multi span continuous bridge

In the paper the effects induced by creep in multi span continuous bridge built linking prestressed simple supported beams are analyzed, focusing on the stress pattern induced by the delayed restraint reactions which develop in...more

Analysis of the effects induced by game connection in Bailey Bridges

This technical note analyzes the influence of the game between the hole and pin connections that make continuity in Bailey Bridges. In particular, the study shows, using the Principle of Virtual Work, the range of displacements...more
