Computer Based Structural Analysis of Bridges

  • S. Odorizzi
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 316)

Summary

Some applications are presented for the computer based structural analysis of bridges. The possibility of employing general purpose computer programs is also discussed, with specific reference to finite element programs, to get an effective solution of a variety of problems typical of such structures. The methods here proposed are not at all exhaustive of the subject; they are aimed to characterize the attitude with which the user of any actual computer program should face a particular category of structures.
