Synopsis A Study of Torsion in Single Cell Box Girder Bridges by A.R.M. Fam, R.G. Redwood and C.J. Turkstra

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.
