The Calculation of Bending and Torsional Effects in Girders

ALTHOUGH regulations for the design of structural steelwork specify that girders shall be designed for torsional effects, text books provide no guidance as to the nature of the effects, and how they may be calculated. As a result of the Author's study of this subject and the support provided by B.I.S.R.A. full-size and model tests a method of calculation based on the theory of bending and torsion has already been set out in the Author's published papers. This paper, which is the basis of a lecture to the Institution of Structural Engineers, aims at presenting as simply as possible the theory and conclusions from the tests and gives examples of the method of calculation as applied to common types of girders in practice,which are eccentrically loaded.
