An Appraisal of the Merrison Design Rules for Ribs of Girder Webs

The paper is concerned with the Merrison rules method for the design ribs of plate and box girder webs. The rationale for the rules is outlined, and rib size as predicted by them is compared with rib size predicted from elastic, small deflection, plate theory. H.R. Milner
