Dynamic Relaxation Analysis of Multiple Span Slabs

The theoretical basis of a suite of computer programs for the analysis of bridge slabs is presented. The slabs were treated as thin elastic plates and solutions were obtained by dynamic relaxation. Orthotropic, variable thickness and constant thickness slabs were considered, of rectangular, skew and curved shapes. Comparisons with other theoretical and experimental results are given. A.C.
