An Experimental and Theoretical Investigation of Modern Box Beams in Perspex and Micro Concrete

A theoretical investigation of box bridge beams is conducted using three methods of analysis, namely, finite element, finite strip and closed cylindrical shell theory. The latter theory allows a rather rapid form of analysis for both plate and cylindrical members for box beams using a computer program. J.E. Gibson and M.H. Mitwally
