The design of the longitudinally stiffened compression flanges of steel box girder bridges and similar structures is governed by the interaction that in such flanges usually occurs between shear lag and flange buckling. Several approaches to analysis of this problem have been established to date. Here we shall deal with three of them (the first two having also been included into the document “Stiffened Compression Flanges of Box Girders”, edited by the ECCS Technical Working Group 8/3 “Plated Structures”), viz.


Ultimate Load Longitudinal Stiffener Ultimate Limit State Serviceability Limit State Extensive Parametric Study
