Prior research has demonstrated that transverse stiffeners in straight I-girders are loaded predominantly by bending induced by their restraint of web lateral deflections at the shear strength limit state, not by in-plane tension field forces. This is at odds with present specification approaches for the design of these components. Furthermore, recent studies have confirmed that curved I-girders are capable of developing substantial shear postbuckling resistance due to tension field action and… CONTINUE READING
