by Konrad Basler,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1961, Vol. 87, Issue 7, Pg. 151-180

Document Type: Journal Paper


A study of the shear strength of plate girders is presented. In utilizing the postbuckling strength offered by the transverse stiffening of girders, new design rules are proposed. The new approach is checked with ultimate load tests carried out at Fritz Engineering Laboratory.
