Behaviour and Design of Trapezoidally Corrugated Web Girders for Bridge Construction: Recent Advances details the behavior and design of CWGs in bridge construction, including unique research into high-strength steel. The title gives a review of CWG design, along with explanations of key concepts, such as the accordion effect, what differentiates these girders from more conventional flat-webbed girders, and the authors specialized research into tubular flanged girders. The book distinguishes between prismatic and tapered corrugated web girders, explains failure modes under shear and flexure, and provides illustrations. Finally, the volume compares international building codes and offers recommendations for future research.
Seven chapters cover an Introduction to CWGs for bridge construction, the Development of bridges with corrugated webs, Real boundary conditions between flange and web, Shear buckling behavior, Flexural buckling behavior, Recent erection methods, and Future research. This book will help structural and design engineers understand advances and future directions in the behavior and design of corrugated web girders for bridge building.
