Abstract

The object of this paper is to investigate the behavior of tapered plate girders, primarily subjected to shear loading; experimental as well as finite element results obtained from the studies are presented in this paper. 11 medium-scale girders, one of uniform section and 10 tapered, were tested to failure and all girders were analysed by finite element method using the computer package ABAQUS. The results are compared and the accuracy of the finite element modeling established. Web thickness, loading direction - inclined flange in tension or compression and taper angle were varied and, the elastic and ultimate load behaviour studied.
