Stress Analysis of Rigid Frame Bridges with Inclined Legs

by Shih-yuan Cheng,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 12, Pg. 1-22

Document Type: Journal Paper


Methods of direct moment distribution applied to the rigid frame bridges with inclined legs are introduced in this paper. Formulas are derived for the anti-symmetric loading conditions. By using these formulas with the aid of the tables that are provided, a simplified method for influence line analysis is introduced.
