Load Factors for Prestressed Concrete Bridges

by T.Y. Lin,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1957, Vol. 83, Issue 4, Pg. 1-18

Document Type: Journal Paper


Use of load factors in ultimate design is compared to elastic theory and allowable stress method; variables affecting load factor of bridge sections analyzed, indicating wide divergence when designed on basis of no tension in concrete; significance of load distribution, load repetition, and meaning of yield point and usable strengths.
