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

By: M. Lenzi, P. Campana, I. Missiroli

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 those of the girders. Example and case history are also presented.
