Some examples of Box Girder Bridges in California

The paper deals briefly with the application of reinforced concrete cellular deck for bridges (hereinafter referred to as box girder) in the USA and its wide use in the State of California for structures in urban expressway systems. The history of the box girder structure, its advantages, economy and applications are mentioned. Design specifications both theoretical and practical are discussed and illustrated. Finally a typical example of a box girder detail is shown together with sketches and photographs of box girder application in viaducts and flyovers. S. H. Studzinski
