Abstract:

A computer-oriented method for the analysis of orthotropic bridge decks is presented. The structure is idealized as a rectangular orthotropic plate which is continuous over simply supported, deformable floor beams. A finite element method is developed for the analysis of the idealized structure. An efficient and easy to use computer program is described, and results are presented.
