Load and Resistance Factor Design criteria are presented for transversely stiffened steel plate girders in buildings. Resistance factors and expressions for nominal resistance are developed for plate girders in flexure, shear, and combined flexure and shear. The resistance factors are derived from first-order probabilistic considerations.

Subject Headings: Plate girders | Shear resistance | Load and resistance factor design | Building design | Steel plates | Stiffening | Probability | Live loads
