The summary provided by the authors of various recommendations and 13 'rule of thumb' equations, supported by a most impracticable example, is of doubtful value to the designer. The proposed method for the solution of the problem is given in a complicated form.
A method of designing reinforced concrete sections subjected to membrane stresses has been presented. The method proposes separate design for horizontal, vertical and shear
stresses which are in excess of the concretess carrying capability. The method is simple and is suitable for use in the everyday design work of such structural elements.
Guidelines arising from the use of grillage analysis in the design of cellular bridge decks are discussed. Differences between the physical behaviour of cellular decks and a
grillage of beams are identified, leading to conclusions on the evaluation of stiffness parameters for an idealized grillage.
