by J.C. Hacker,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1957, Vol. 83, Issue 6, Pg. 1-6

Document Type: Journal Paper


Equations for approximate direct design of balanced composite steel stringers for ordinary highway bridges are presented; empirical factor for ratio of steel flange areas is used, and derivation and simplifying assumptions are outlined; numerical examples for three basic types of steel stringers are worked out, illustrating practical applications of equations.
