Method for calculating distribution of longitudinal moments, deflections, etc, based on assumption that transverse system can be replaced by uniform medium of same total flexural rigidity; bridge having large number of longitudinals can be replaced by equivalent five longitudinal structure to determine deflected cross section and distribution coefficients for its longitudinals.
