In this study single cell box girder bridges are examined in detail by means of finite element analysis. Realistic loading and support restraints are considered and the effects of shear lag, diaphragms, eccentric stiffeners and varying geometric properties are examined. The analysis uses triangular elements with eccentric stiffeners and can be used for stiffened plates as well as the three dimensional box-type structures considered.

Professional structural engineers will be grateful to Professor Kemp for his elegant generalization of Hillerborg’s strip-method to deal with concentrated loads. The moment-field throughout the slab is constructed by a meaningful distribution of shears. Design of slabs subjected to concentrated loads becomes thus possible by the strip-method. K. Rajagopalan
