The Henry’s Equal Distribution Factor (EDF) method is a simplified method for calculating the distribution factor of live load moment and shear. The method has been in use in Tennessee since 1963. This method assumes that all beams, including interior and exterior beams, have equal distribution of live load effects. Parameters in this method are limited to only roadway width, number of girders, and a load intensity factor. Because Henry’s method is less restrictive, it can be applied to… CONTINUE READING
