Interface Shear Stresses in Composite Plates Under Wheel Loads

Details are given of a numerical investigation into the interface shear stresses occurring in composite plates under wheel loads. The results of the investigation are used to develop a simple design method for estimating such stresses in typical bridge-deck panels and to demonstrate the influence of various parameters on the accuracy of the method.
