    Abstract

    In bridge construction horizontally curved plate girders are used to support reinforced concrete slab acting compositely with the steel part. This paper is concerned with ultimate load behaviour of such girders curved in plan under shear loading. Finite element analysis using the computer package LUSAS was employed to investigate the behaviour and ultimate strength capacity of the girders. Parameters that affect the behaviour of these girders are slenderness of the web d/t, web panel aspect ratio b/d, type of web such as corrugated webs, openings in the web panels, size of the openings relative to depth of the web do/d, shape of the openings, shear force at the opening, bending moment at the centre line of the opening, stiffness of the flange and degree of curvature. Influence of these parameters on the collapse behaviour due to shear loading is investigated in this study. The ultimate loads, failure mechanism and load-deflection curves are obtained and some typical results are presented herein.
