Abstract:

Analytical method for determining buckling load of top chords of single span pony truss bridges has been developed by E.C.HOLT, Jr based on testing of 10 model bridges; results of complementary study of effect of floor-system participation on top-chord stresses in pony truss bridges; analytical method calculates resulting increase in top-chord stresses.
