Load Distribution of Diaphragms in I-Beam Bridgesby B.C.F. Wei,
Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1959, Vol. 85, Issue 5, Pg. 17-56
Document Type: Journal Paper
Structures considered are simple span right bridges, consisting of continuous slab supported by five parallel beams of equal stiffness in direction of traffic; diaphragms, which may be in form of channel, WF-beam, or built up section, are transverse framings in structure; factors such as position and stiffness of diaphragm, relative stiffness of beam and slab, relative dimensions, and loading, discussed; recommendations on effective use of diaphragms.
