Distribution of Concentrated Loads on Orthotropic Bridge Decks

A new general method is presented for analysing the distribution of concentrated loads in right orthotropic bridge decks. The analysis is compared with the Guyon-Massonnet analysis within the limited range of the latter and is found to give significantly higher values of longitudinal moment. Good correlation is found with experimental values on slabs obtained by Rowe and by the authors. Professor A.R. Cusens and R.P. Pama
