Steel box girder bridges have become an accepted method of constructing highway bridges. Significant design and construc­ tion advances have occurred in the past 25 years. THE PAST In the "Criteria for Design of Steel-Concrete Composite Box Girder Bridges" were incorporated into the AASHTO bridge Size: KB. The box girder normally comprises either prestressed concrete, structural steel, or a composite of steel and reinforced concrete. The box is typically rectangular or trapezoidal in cross-section. Box girder bridges are commonly used for highway flyovers and for modern elevated structures of light rail transport. Although normally the box girder bridge is a form of beam bridge, box girders may also be used on Ancestor: Tubular bridge.

collapses of box girder bridges in Britain, Australia, Austria and Germany between and Following the collapse of two British designed bridges, a Committee of Inquiry into the basis of design and method of erection of steel box girder bridges was appointed. The Committee proposed a.   The design of steel box girder bridges under unsymmetrically placed live loads involves consideration of intermediate diaphragms that are required to limit cross-sectional deformation and distortional normal by: 2.

The Merrison Committee of Inquiry into the Design and Erection of Steel Box Girder Bridges concluded that the cause of the collapse was the inadequacy of the design of a pier support diaphragm (a diaphragm of half the designed thickness was used), but considered "the failure of site organisation between the parties as of more general significance".Crosses: River Cleddau.

Box-Girder Bridges Construction Methods Box girders have gained wide acceptance in freeway and bridge systems due to their structural efficiency, better stability, serviceability, economy of construction and pleasing aesthetics [11].

The need for an ad hoc committee of inquiry into steel box girder bridges must question the adequacy of established procedure for formulating rules and methods, backed by sufficient research, for use in design and erection. At the same time, much has been done recently to improve matters.

have been used for spliced girder bridges. Since more bridges are being built with continuity over the piers, the need for an optimum I-girder section is becoming more important.
