Progress Report on Steel Box Girder Bridges

Subcommittee on Beams with Web Openings of the Task Committee on Flexural Members of the Structural Division, ASCE

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1971, Vol. 97, Issue 4, Pg. 1175-1186

Document Type: Journal Paper


A review of currently available methods for the elastic analysis of steel box girder bridges is presented, along with information on experimental verifications and a brief section on stability problems associated with steel box girders. It is suggested that an experimental research program on full-size box girders is needed to assist in formulating an ultimate strength approach to steel box girder design.
