RAPID DESIGN OF STEEL MONOSYMMETRIC PLATE AND BOX GIRDERS by MILAD KHORASANI B.A.Sc., UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, 2008 A THESIS SUBMITTED IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF MASTER OF APPLIED SCIENCE in THE FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES (Civil Engineering) THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (Vancouver) August 2010 © Milad Khorasani, 2010  Abstract This thesis deals with the design process for steel plate girders and box girders. The design of plate girders is quite prescriptive. A more fundamental approach is required for the design of box girders. Equations explicitly for the design of plate and box girders are heavily influenced by empirical data. This work considers pure steel box girders only, and does not include the design of composite box girder sections. CAN/CSA-S6-00 “Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code” provides detailed design requirements for these composite girders. The design of plate girders follows mostly the requirements specified in the “Handbook of Steel Construction” CAN/CSA-S16.1. However, the S16.1 clauses relating to bending capacity are not well suited for the design of monosymmetric plate girders. Therefore, the code recommends a rational method of analysis such as methods explained in the Structural Stability Research Council’s Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures. In addition, “Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code” CAN/CSA-S6-00 provides additional design information for monosymmetric sections. A steel box girder excluding composite design, hereon simply referred to as a box girder, is a purely steel section that could be designed in accordance with CAN/CSA-S16 “Limit States Design of Steel Structures”. However, this standard focuses on clauses for plate girder design, with little specific reference to box girders. Therefore, additional reference materials such as: 1) Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures, 2) Crane Manufacturer’s Association of America (CMAA 74-2) standards, and 3) Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code are used for the design of monosymmeteric box girders. An integrated design and analysis environment in a form of formatted spreadsheet is implemented to ease the design process. The spreadsheet checks for both strength and serviceability requirements according to the applicable codes and standards. Included with this project is a clear procedure manual in chapter 7, so that the spreadsheet can be utilized for commercial design.  ii  Table of Contents

A rolled beam is a steel girder which has been formed by hot-rolling. The most common type of rolled beams used are the W-, H-, or I-shapes. These shapes have the advantage of quick erection, straight forward fabrication, and an overall simplicity of design. Rolled beams are sometimes reinforced with a flat plate, or cover plate, at the flange. The advantage or cover plate is to increase flexural resistance of the section without having to use a large size rolled beam or plate girder. A plate girder, like a rolled beam, has two flanges and a central web section. Rather than being hot-rolled as a whole, the girder is welded from steel plate elements. Older designs may be bolted or rivetted. When the designer has the ability to specify the section properties to accommodate the local forces it usually results in greater economy of material usage. Variation in plate sizes may represent a girder with the least weight; however, this may increase the fabrication costs. Plate girders are generally used for larger spans than rolled beams. Bridge superstructures and stadium roofs are common applications for steel plate and box girders. Box girders are more expensive to fabricate than plate girders because of their complexity, however, have a number of significant advantages, particularly for longer spans. Firstly because of the shape of the box, the top flange itself can act as the decking without the need for a concrete or timber decking. Box girders possess excellent torsional stiffness, thus they do not usually require secondary members to provide bracing like plate girders. They can also be designed with an aerodynamic shape, again making them ideal for long spans. A famous example for aero-elastic problems with plate girders of I-shape was the Tacoma Bridge. This report presents the design equations and their background for the design of monosymmetic plate girders according to CAN/CSA-S16 and CSA/CAN-S6 standards. A fundamental firstprinciple approach is chosen for the design of box girders along with design equations based on CAN/CSA-S16, CMAA and SSRC.  1  2.0 Buckling of Plates Webs and flanges of both steel plate and box girders are comprised of flat steel plates with uniform thicknesses. The design of these girders consists of choosing appropriate cross sections and boundary conditions to each of these plate elements, ensuring that each plate element does not fail due to local buckling, yielding or an interaction of the two and that the girder does not fail due to global buckling. It is desirable for global buckling to be the first mode of failure reached as the loads on a girder are increased past the anticipated service loading. Global buckling is associated with large deformations which give warning of failure, while local buckling is generally brittle and sudden.  2.1 Buckling of Unstiffened Plates The buckling stresses are obtained from the concept of bifurcation of an initially perfect structure. In practice, the response of the structure is continuous, due to the inevitable presence of initial imperfections. For a plate to be considered slender, the in-plane dimensions, “a”, and, “b”, need to be significantly greater than the plate thickness, “t”. The dimension, “b”, is usually taken as the direction transverse to the main direction of in-plane loading named width while “a” is taken as in line with the applied load, commonly named length 2.1.1 Uniaxial uniform compression The elastic critical stress of a long plate segment, σc, is determined by the plate width-tothickness ratio, b/t, by the restraint conditions along the longitudinal boundaries, and by the elastic material properties. It is expressed as  π2E σc = k 2 12(1 − ν 2 )(b/t )  (1)  2  σ Segment of long plate having thickness t, width b, and various edge conditions as tabulated below  σ Case  Description of edge support  k  1  Both edges simply supported  4.00  2  One edge simply supported, the other fixed  5.42  3  Both edges fixed  6.97  4  One edge simply supported, the other free  0.425  5  One edge fixed, the other free  1.277  b  Figure 1 - Uniform compression buckling coefficients, k, for equation 1  The buckling coefficient, k, is determined by a theoretical critical load analysis, and is a function of plate geometry and boundary conditions. The values given in figure 1 are the lower bounds, with the actual value depending on the plate aspect ratio, m (a/b). This is because a perfect plate under in-plane compression will buckle into m square half waves if the plate aspect ratio is an integer, as this corresponds to the lowest energy mode and for non integer ratios the plate will in theory have a higher buckling stress.  3  No. of half waves  1 k  2  3 a = 3b  4  b  1  4  2 6 3 2 Aspect ratio m = a/b  12  4  Figure 2 - Buckling of a plate with an aspect ratio of 3:1  When a plate is relatively short in the direction of the compressive stress (i.e. a/b << 1), the critical stress may be conservatively estimated by assuming that a unit width of plate behaves like a column.Local buckling causes a loss of stiffness and a redistribution of stresses. Membrane tensions are set up, which resist the growth of deflection and give the plate postbuckling strength. Uniform edge compression in the longitudinal direction results in a nonuniform stress distribution after buckling, and the plate derives almost all of its stiffness from the longitudinal edge supports. Elastic postbuckling stiffness is measured in terms of the apparent modulus of elasticity E* (the ratio of the average stress carried by the plate to the average strain). For simply supported edges E* = 0.5E. There is a decrease in stress at the center of the panel because of the reduction of in-plane stiffness along the center line of the plate caused by the lateral deflection. This reduction of stress due to buckling action gives rise to a semi-empirical method of estimating the maximum strength of plates by the use of the effective width concept.  4  Actual distribution of stress σe  be 2  Region assumed not to transmit stress because of buckling  be 2  be is plate buckling effective width  Displacement controlled loading  σe b t  Figure 3 - Definition of effective width  It assumed that the maximum edge stress acts uniformly over two ‘strips’ of plate leaving the central region unstressed as shown in Figure 3. This width is evaluated in order that the total force carried by the plate is equal to the actual response. 2.1.2 Pure bending Equation 1 is used to calculate the critical buckling load, with substitution of the appropriate buckling coefficient, k. The buckling coefficient of a plate in bending is significantly influenced by the fact that half (in the linear response range) of the load is applied in tension.  σ  σ b −σ  −σ a Figure 4 - Plate subject to pure bending  5  Pure bending plate buckling coefficients: k = 23.9 edges simply supported k = 39.6 unloaded edges fixed k = 0.85 top edge free, bottom edge simply supported k = 2.15 top edge free, bottom edge fixed  2.1.3 Pure shear In a plate subject to pure shear, there exists tension and compression stresses equal in magnitude to the shear stress and inclined at 45º. The destabilizing influence of compressive stresses is resisted by tensile stresses in the perpendicular direction. The critical stress can be obtained by substituting τc and ks for σc and k in equation 1. Unlike the case of edge compression, the buckling mode is composed of a combination of several waveforms, making the buckling analysis of shear more complex.  τ b  α=  a b  τ a Figure 5 - Plate subject to pure shear  τc = k s  π2 E  12 (1 − ν 2 ) ( b / t )  2  (2)  Shear buckling coefficients: 1.

The crane code also gives interaction failure criteria for plates subject to in-plane bending, compression and shear.

If the resulting value is above the proportional limit, buckling is said to be inelastic.

Each sub panel can be checked for local buckling subject to these stresses using the appropriate buckling coefficients given. A second mode of failure needs to be checked, too, which is local buckling of the plate as a whole including the stiffeners. The third and final mode of failure involves the local buckling of elements of the stiffeners. This is usually avoided by adhering to slenderness limits, which is a simplified buckling check. 9  3.0 Design of Plate Girders (CAN/CSA-S16-01) Plate girders are built up flexural members with slender webs that are usually used in long spans between 15 to 45 m, exceeding the useful range of available rolled shapes. The webs can fail due to buckling, yielding or a combination of the two in either shear or bending. Web dimensions and stiffener spacing are chosen in order to ensure that there is an adequate safety margin with respect to these failure modes. Flanges are sized to prevent local buckling or yielding. A typical plate girder consists of two flanges and a web welded together to form an I-section. There are several types of plate girders depending on the stiffeners used. There are unstiffened plate girders with no stiffeners, stiffened plate girders with only transverse web stiffeners, and stiffened plate girders with transverse and longitudinal web stiffeners. Figure 8 shows these types of plate girders and various stiffeners generally used in the plate girders. Figure 8d shows a typical section of a plate girder. The stiffeners are used to improve the shear capacity of the webs instead of increasing the overall web thickness. The use of stiffeners is more economical in longer spans under greater loads. Although the plate girder sections are bisymmetric in Figure 8, the monosymmetric plate girders are also common. Figure 9 shows various monosymmetric cross sections of plate girders.  10  Figure 8 – Unstiffened and stiffened plate girders  11  Figure 9 – Monosymmetric cross sections of plate girders  12  3.1 Preliminary Sizing The selection of most economical girder dimensions is dependent on a number of variables which are primarily a function of the weight of steel used and the amount of fabrication. A good value to start with for the good depth in regard of moment resistance according to allowable stress design is: M h ≈ 540  f  F  y  1/ 3     (22)  Fy is the yield strength of steel and Mf is the maximum factored moment along the span. An approximated flange area Af can be calculated by assuming that lateral torsional buckling will not govern the design, and the contribution of the web to the bending resistance of the girder is negligible. This assumption is valid as long as lateral supports are provided at intervals close enough to prevent lateral-torsional buckling. Af which represents area of one flange only can be obtained using:  Af ≈  Mf Fy h  (23)  The web thickness, w, can be calculated by assuming that the entire shear is carried by the web. Therefore, Aw =  Vf = wh φFs  (24)  Vf is the maximum factored shear along the span and Φ is the performance factor equal to 0.9 for structural steel and Fs is the ultimate shear stress of steel. Fs will be discussed later. This parameter depends on the web slenderness ratio and the existence of transverse stiffeners. However, for preliminary design Fs is given by equation 25. Fs = 0.66Fy  (25)  Furthermore, the code imposes limits on the maximum and minimum web thickness allowed. The index min and max represents minimum and maximum values respectively.  w min =  Fy h 83000  Fy ⋅ h wmax := 1900  (26)  (27)  13  3.2 Design of Cross Section for Flexure A plate girder subject primarily to bending moment usually fails by lateral-torsional buckling, local buckling of the compression flange, or yielding of one or both flanges. The code divides the section into 4 classes according to their width to thickness ratios. These limits are summarized in the table 1. Table 1 – Section class  Class  Plate girder Flange under compression  Web under flexural compression  Class 1 b0 /t ≤ 145/√Fy  h/w ≤1100/√Fy  Class 2 b0 /t ≤170/√Fy  h/w ≤1700/√Fy  Class 3 b0 /t ≤200/√Fy  h/w ≤1900/√Fy  Class 4 b0 /t >200/√Fy  h/w >1900/√Fy  The Standard specifies for laterally supported members the moment resistance are: Class 1, 2:  Mr = φMp = φZFy  (28)  Class 3:  Mr = φMy = φSFy  (29)  Where S denotes the section modulus (S = I/ŷ). Z represents the plastic modulus which is the first moment of area of the tension and compression zones about the neutral axis. φ=0.9 is the performance factor of steel and Fy is the yield stress of steel. Class 4 sections are such that they buckle locally at a moment less than My and the moment resistance is a function of the width-to-thickness ratios of the component elements. This class is subdivided into three categories. The first category, (i), contains those sections having both flange and web plates falling within Class 4. The second category, (ii), contains those sections having flanges meeting the requirements of Class 3 but having Class 4 webs. The third category, (iii), contains sections having web plates meeting the Class 3 requirements, but with compression flanges exceeding Class 3 limits. The code recommends using CSA Standard S136 for calculation of the moment resistances of Class 4(i) and 4(iii) sections. However, it allows the use of equation 30 shown below for Class 4(iii) sections as an alternative to CSA S136.  14  Mr = φSeFy  (30)  Where Se is the effective elastic section modulus determined using an effective flange width. The effective width is 670t/√Fy for flanges supported along two edges parallel to the direction of stress and 200t/√Fy for flanges supported along one edge parallel to the direction of stress. For flanges supported along one edge, in no case shall b/t exceed 60. Plate girder sections that have flanges meeting the requirements of Class 3 but having Class 4 webs (Class 4(ii)) can not attain the full moment resistance from equation 8 due to the local buckling (softening) of the slender web. Most plate girders fall into this class of section. This effect is accounted for in the code through the use of an effective width, by only considering 1/6 of the web area in the compression zone to be effective in resisting lateral buckling as shown in Figure 10.  Compression flange 1 of Web 6 Area  Theoretical  Experimental  Figure 10 – Effective distribution of bending stresses  In the code, it is assumed that the maximum moment that can be carried by the sections is that which causes the extreme fiber in the compression zone to reach yield stress, as the thin web will not permit attainment of the theoretical plastic moment of the section. A linear reduction to this maximum attainable value is then applied, which is a function of web slenderness, the relative proportions of the flange and web, and the buckling load of the web.   A M r ' = M r 1.0 − 0.0005 w Af   h 1900    −  w M f / φS     (31)  Where Aw and Af are the web and flange area respectively.

It has been assumed thus far that the strength of the beam is determined by the capacity of its cross-section, and this, in turn, is dependent on the local buckling capacity of its plate elements. However if the beam is laterally unsupported, the strength may be governed instead by lateraltorsional buckling of the complete member, as shown in figure 11. Beams are especially prone to this type of buckling during the construction phase, where lateral bracing are either absent or different in type from their permanent ones. Position before loading  ∆  Position before buckling  Position after buckling  Figure 11 – Lateral-torsional buckling motion  At a given stage of loading, the cross-section may twist and bend about its weak axis, reducing its ultimate moment capacity due to large deflections and yielding. The main parameter affecting lateral-torsional buckling strength is the distance between lateral braces. Other influences are: the type and position of the loads, the restraints at the ends and at intermediate locations, the type of cross sections, continuity at supports, the presence or absence of stiffening devices that restrain warping at critical locations, the material properties, the magnitude and distribution of the residual stresses, prestressing forces, initial imperfections of geometry and loading, discontinuities in the cross section, cross-sectional distortion, and interaction between local and overall buckling. 16  M Mp My B  C  M  M  D  A  ∆ L  ∆ Figure 12 – M-∆ ∆ relationships for laterally unbraced beams  Beams can also be classified in terms of the effect of lateral-torsion buckling on the ultimate moment capacity attainable, as shown in figure 13.  Mcr  Local Buckling  Inelastic Lateral Buckling  Elastic Lateral Buckling Stocky  Intermediate  Slender L  Figure 13 – Beam Failure modes  A stocky beam is defined as a beam which is able to reach its local buckling capacity before lateral buckling occurs. The local buckling capacity of Class 1 or 2 sections is Mp and for Class 3 sections, My. A slender beam buckles laterally before the member yields, and the resistance to lateral-torsion buckling is based on full elastic action. For the intermediate beam, the bending 17  moment at the instant before lateral buckling is sufficient to cause portions of the section to yield, thus the resistance to both lateral and twisting motions is reduced. The Standard provides an equation for calculating the elastic lateral buckling strength of doubly symmetric beams.  Mu =  ω2 π 2 EI y GJ + (πE/L ) I y C w L  ω2 = 1.75 + 1.05ς + 0.3ς 2 ≤ 2.5  (32)  (33)  where ζ is the ratio of the smaller bending moment to the larger bending moment at opposite ends of the unbraced length. This equation provides a reasonable estimate of the moment at which lateral buckling will occur, provided that the strains in the member are less than the yield strain at the instant before buckling. Thus, equation 32 is accepted as the basis for the design of slender members. Due to relatively large residual stresses in the flange tips, yielding will occur when the applied moment reaches approximately two-thirds of the buckling capacity of the member, Mp for Class 1 or 2 sections, and My for Class 3 or 4 sections. Equation 32 is thus valid until Mu reaches twothirds of Mp for Class 1 or 2 sections, and My for Class 3 or 4 sections. Mu ≤ 0.67Mp (Slender members): Mr = φMu for Classes 1- 4  (34)  Mu ≥ 0.67Mp (Stocky members):   0.28M p  M r = 1.15φM p 1 ≤ φM p Class 1 or 2 M u    (35)   0.28M y  M r = 1.15φM y 1 −  ≤ φM y Class 3 or 4 Mu    (36)  CAN/CSA-S16 does not give equations for the calculation of mono-symmetric sections such as box girders or plate girders with flanges of differing width. The code recommends the use of equations given in ‘Guide to stability Design Criteria for metal structures’; however these are in the general form. CAN/CSA-S6-06 gives worked examples based on the same expressions listed 18  in ‘Guide to Stability Design Criteria for metal structures’ for monosymmetric plate girders and open top box girders. Lateral torsional buckling can be avoided by properly spaced and designed lateral bracing, or by using cross sections which are torsionally stiff, such as box-shaped sections or open-section beam groups connected intermittently by triangulated lacing or by diaphragms or by ensuring that the required design moment does not exceed the lateral-torsional buckling capacity.  3.3 Design of Cross Section for Shear CAN/CSA-S16-01 identifies 3 limiting states for determining the shear capacity of the web; shear buckling, shear yielding or a combination of both. The first mode of failure is dependent on the web slenderness and stiffener spacing. In the following section the shear resistance of the plate girders with and without transverse stiffeners will be considered.  3.3.1 Unstiffened girder webs When steel is subject to a combined stress condition, the yield stress in shear, Fy, is normally approximated by the Von-Misses value, which is increased to allow for the strengthening effects of strain hardening. The shear yielding strength is given by:  Fs = λ  Fy 3  → 0.66Fy  (37)  The general equation for buckling of a plate subject to pure shear (equation 2) is used to calculate the resistance to shear buckling after substituting the correct notation for dimensions of plate girder webs.  τcr =  (  kπ 2 E  )  12 1 − ν 2 ( h / w )  2  (38)  For a/b ≥ 1.0, for simply supported edges, it is found that: k = 5.34 +  4.0  ( a/h )  2  (39)  19  The Standard assumes representative values for the terms in equation 38 (E = 200 GPa, υ = 0.3,  k = kv, τcr = Fs). With these values equation 38 reduces to:  Fs ≈  180000k v  (h / w )  (40)  2  Figure 14 below shows equations 38 and 40 plotted on the same chart, and clearly demonstrates that the failure mode is dependent on the slenderness, (h/w), of the web.

The equation for this curve is given in the code and was chosen mainly on the basis of experimental evidence.  1.

This is called tension  field action. Figure 16 shows the general distribution of the tension field that develops in the plate girder with transverse stiffeners. This tension field is anchored by the flanges and stiffeners.  a  a s  h θ  a 2  F  a 2 σtaw  Tw 2  V 2 T + ∆T  N.A.

In such cases, the effect of the interaction between these two forces upon girder strength must be considered. This is shown diagrammatically in figure 18. The diagram shows that if the factored moment is less than 75% of the moment resistance, the full shear shear resistance may be used. Similarly, if the factored shear is less than 60% of the shear resistance, the full moment resistance is used.  24  0.727 1.0  Mf V + 0.455 f = 1.0 Mr Vr  0.75 Mf Mr  Vf Vr  0.6  1.0  Figure 18 - Shear-moment interaction diagram  The code applies a straight line to the interaction curve in order to simplify the equations. 0.727  Mf V + 0.455 f ≤ 1.0 Mr Vr  (57)  3.5 Transverse Stiffeners Transverse stiffeners are used throughout the web to provide tension field action. The S16-01 Standard does place limits on maximum stiffener spacing. The limits for stiffener spacing are as follows:  a≤  67500h when h / w > 150 or; (h / w) 2  a ≤ 3h when h / w ≤ 150  (58) (59)  Each stiffener should resist the summation of the vertical components of the tension field action (F) over one panel width.  σ hw  a (a / h ) F= t  − 2  h 1 + (a / h) 2 2      (60)  25  Based on the assumption that the stiffener will yield before buckling, CAN/CSA-S16-01 provides an equation for the stiffener area required.

This is given as follows: 4   h  Is ≥   (63)  50  To prevent local buckling of the stiffener under the compressive force, F, the slenderness ratio (b/t) should not exceed: b 200 ≤ t Fy  (64)  3.6 Bearing Stiffeners The application of a concentrated load to the flange of a girder can result in local failure. This can happen either by localized buckling of the web in the region where it connects to the flange or by overall buckling of the web. In a stockier web, the web will fail due to yielding. In a more slender web, crippling, or localized buckling, will govern. Bearing resistance must be calculated for both possible modes of failure, and the smaller value will govern as the bearing resistance. The equations for bearing for an interior location of the girder are given in clause 14.3.2(a): Br = φbi w( N + 10t ) Fy  (65)  26  Br = 1.45φbi w2 Fy E  (66)  Where N= length of bearing w= web thickness t= flange thickness φbi = 0.8 While the equations for bearing for the end reactions are given by: Br = φbe w( N + 4t ) Fy  (67)  Br = 0.60φbe w2 Fy E  (68)  Where  φbe = 0.75  27  4.0 Design of Plate Girders (CAN/CSA-S6-06) This section thoroughly covers the design of plate girders according to Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code CAN/CSA-S6-06.  4.1 Moment Resistance The moment resistance calculations for plate girders are divided into two categories: those for Class 1 and 2 sections in 10.10.2 and those for Class 3 and 4 sections in 10.10.3. The fundamental distinction is that Class 1 and 2 sections use the plastic section modulus to calculate the moment resistance, while Class 3 and 4 sections use the elastic modulus. The reasoning for this is described in the previous section of this report. Both 10.10.2 and 10.10.3 include four main subsections. These describe (i) the limiting widthto-thickness ratios for steel sections of the corresponding classes, (ii) moment resistance for laterally supported members, (iii) moment resistance for laterally unsupported members and (iv) moment resistance for bending about the minor axis. Each of these conditions makes use of different geometric properties of the plate girder to calculate the moment resistance.  4.1.1 Class 1 and 2 sections The basic equation for the moment resistance of Class 1 and 2 sections is the factored plastic moment resistance for laterally supported members, defined in clause 10.10.2.2 as: M r = φ s Z x Fy = φ s M px  (69)  Laterally supported members are expected to attain their full plastic moment strength, and thus the moment resistance varies only with the plastic section modulus and the yield strength of the steel. A laterally unsupported member may fail by lateral torsional buckling or a combination of weak axis buckling and lateral buckling. In order to account for this reduction in bending strength due to buckling, clause 10.10.2.3 (a) introduces equations that reduce the moment resistance of the section based on its geometric properties. These equations are as follows: M r = 1.15φ s M p [1 −  0.28M p Mu  ] ≤ φ s M p when M u > 0.67 M p  (70)  28  M r = φ s M u when M u ≤ 0.67 M p  (71)  The Mu term in these equations is the critical elastic moment, which can be described as the moment that will cause buckling in the unbraced beam. This moment is defined in clause 10.10.2.3 (b) by the equations:  ω 2π  Mu =  L  2  [ E s I y G s J ( B1 + 1 + B2 + B1 )]  ω 2 = 1.75 + 1.05κ + 0.3κ 2 ≤ 2.5 B1 = π  B2 =  βx  Es I y  2L  Gs J  π 2 EsCw  (72) (73) (74)  (75)  L2 G s J  The coefficient ω2 accounts for the for the increased moment resistance of the beam when subjected to a moment gradient. This coefficient depends on κ, the ratio of the smaller factored moment to the larger factored moment at opposite ends of the beam. The coefficients B1 and B2 are included to account for the monosymmetric nature of the plate girder. These coefficients vary with βx, the coefficient of monosymmetry, as well as J, the St. Venant torsional constant and Cw, the warping torsional constant. These values all take into account the complex torsional buckling tendencies of the unusual box girder cross-section. Equations for these terms are given in the S6 commentary, in section C10.10.2.3, Laterally Unsupported Members. The coefficient of monosymmetry is defined by the equation:  βx =  1 I xx  ∫ y( x  2  + y 2 )dA + 2e  (76)  A  The closed-form solution to the integral is also provided in the commentary, but is not shown here. Also not shown are the equations for J and Cw. These formulas are complex, and would be beyond the scope of this report to derive from the geometry of the cross-section. The last clause in section 10.10.2 identifies the moment resistance for bending about the minor axis of the box girder. This equation is: 29  M r = φs Z y Fy = φs M py  (77)  4.1.2 Class 3 and 4 sections  Class 3 sections will not attain the plastic moment capacity, so the moment resistance is based on the yield moment. The equation for laterally supported Class 3 sections in bending is defined in clause 10.10.3.2 as: M r = φs S x Fy = φs M y  (78)  Laterally unsupported plate girder sections may be subject to lateral torsional buckling, thus beams in these conditions have reduced moment resistance equations listed in clause 10.10.3.3: M r = 1.15φs M y [1 −  0.28My ] ≤ φs M y when M u > 0.67 M y Mu  M r = φ s M u when M u ≤ 0.67 M y  (79) (80)  These equations are very similar to the laterally unbraced bending equations from clause 10.10.2.3, except that the plastic moment capacity has been replace with the elastic moment capacity. Similar to Class 1 and 2 sections, the moment resistance for Class 3 sections is based solely on the section properties about the weak axis. The plastic section modulus has once again been replaced with the elastic section modulus, leading to the following equation in 10.10.2.5: M r = φs S y Fy = φs M y  (81)  Section 10.10.3 also provides for the calculation of the moment resistance for certain Class 4 sections. Plate girders must meet certain additional conditions, such as that the compression flange must have continuous lateral support, and the web must still meet Class 3 requirements. In such cases, the moment resistance of the section can be calculated using the equations for Class 3 sections, except that the elastic section modulus is replaced with the effective section modulus, Se. The section modulus has been reduced by using only a portion of the actual flange width.  30  4.1.3 Stiffened plate girders The clauses in section 10.10.4 reduce the moment capacity of the plate girders when the webs are slender. This is due to the susceptibility of slender webs to buckle during flexure, which would seem to be equally applicable to single webbed plate girders or double webbed box girders. This section provides additional limits the width-to-thickness ratios of webs that have transverse stiffeners, which will be further discussed later in this report. For girders that have webs without longitudinal stiffeners and that are more slender than the limit of 2d c / w > 1900 / Fy , the moment resistance will be reduce by the following factor:  [1.0 −  1 2d 1900 ( c− )] 1200 Acf w M f / φs S 300 + Aw  (82)  4.2 Shear Resistance The shear resistance of the plate girder is calculated using the area of the webs, neglecting the contribution of the flanges. The ultimate shear stress Ft, depends on the slenderness of the web. The ultimate shear stress includes two components, the shear buckling stress Fcr, and the tension field component of the post-buckling stress Ft. These components are added together to provide the ultimate shear stress. Vr = φs Aw Fs  (83)  Fs = Fcr + Ft  (84)  31  Figure 19 - Shear strength versus web slenderness The buckling stress and post-buckling stress vary depending on the slenderness of the web. The variation of these stresses with the web slenderness is shown in the graph above, from the S16.1 Commentary. Three sets of equations are given to represent the different modes of behavior for the webs in shear. The first set of equations, in clause 10.10.5.1(a), describes the criteria for stockier webs, where  h k ≤ 502 v , and the web will fail in full yielding. The w Fy  post-buckling stress is neglected, and the buckling stress is derived from the vonMises-HenckyHuber yield criterion. This value is more conservative than that used in S16.1. Fcr = 0.577 Fy  (85)  Ft = 0  (86)  As the slenderness of the web increases, the failure mode shifts from full yielding to inelastic buckling. This occurs when 502  kv h k ≤ ≤ 621 v , corresponding to another set of equations Fy w Fy  for the ultimate shear stress in 10.10.5.1(b). These equations now include a component for the post-buckling strength due to tension field action. This tension field action is only relevant if the web of the girder is stiffened. 32  Fcr =  290 Fy kv  (87)  h/w  Ft = (0.5 Fy − 0.866 Fcr )(  1 1 + (a / h) 2  )  The equations for the most slender category of webs, when  (88) h k > 621 v , are defined in clause w Fy  10.10.5.1(c). For this case, the web will fail due to elastic buckling. The post-buckling stress, assuming the web is stiffened, remains the same as for the inelastic buckling case. However, the equation describing the buckling stress has been modified. Fcr =  180000kv (h / w) 2  (89)  Ft = (0.5 Fy − 0.866 Fcr )(  1 1 + (a / h) 2  )  (90)  The shear buckling stress in both elastic and inelastic buckling varies with the shear buckling coefficient kv. This coefficient depends on the ratio of the stiffener spacing to the height of the web, and is calculated from the following equations. kv = 4 +  5.34 when a / h < 1 ( a / h) 2  (91)  4 when a / h ≥ 1 (92) ( a / h) 2 Once all of the parameters that define the ultimate shearof the web have been evaluated, the kv = 5.34 +  factored shear resistance of the plate girder can be determined. This value is compared to the factored shear force in the girder to determine if the shear capacity is adequate.  4.3 Combined Shear and Moment Design Clause 10.10.5.2 provides the check for sections subject to combined shear and moment. The equation involves linear interaction with coefficients for shear and moment based on Basler (1963). The clause only applies to webs of girders that depend on tension field action to carry shear, that is with  h k > 502 v . The girder does not lose a significant amount of shear strength w Fy  33  if Mf/Mr<0.75 because the moment will be carried by the flanges of the girder, and the web will still be able to carry the shear. The combined shear and moment equation is shown below:  0.727  Mf Mr  + 0.455  Vf Vr  < 1 .0  (93)  4.4 Intermediate Transverse Stiffeners The first portion of section 10.10.6 is related to intermediate transverse stiffeners. Web stiffeners in a plate girder will not be required if the factored shear load is less than the unstiffened shear resistance, and the slenderness of the web does not exceed the limit of h / w ≤ 150 . In such instances, the web does not need tension field action to resist the shear loads on the girder. If these restrictions are not met, then web stiffeners are required. The following paragraph in section 10.10.6 identifies the limits for spacing between web stiffeners. The limits for stiffener spacing are as follows: a≤  67500h when h / w > 150 or; (h / w) 2  a ≤ 3h when h / w ≤ 150  (94) (95)  The limit of 3h for stockier webs is necessary to ensure that tension field action is properly developed. Interestingly, the limit for the case of slender webs is provided only to ensure the ease in handling and fabrication the girders. This limit is not related to the strength of the girder, and is based practical limits and experience in the industry. Once the maximum spacing of the stiffeners has been determined, the stiffeners must be sized. Lower limits have been placed on the moment of inertia and the cross-sectional area of the stiffeners. These limits are necessary to ensure that the stiffeners can withstand the compression loads from the tension field action in the web. The limits for stiffener moment of inertia and area are given below: I ≥ aw3 j where j = 2.5(h / a ) 2 − 2 but not less than 0.5 As = (  Vf aw a/h [1 − ] CD − 18w2 )Y ≥ 0 2 1 + (a / h) 2 Vr  (96) (97)  34  C = 1−  310000kv but not less than 0.10 Fy (h / w) 2  (98)  The tension field action in the web develops like a truss, where the segments of web between the stiffeners will transfer the shear loads in tension to the adjacent stiffeners. These stiffeners will then carry the shear in compression, completing the truss.  Figure 20 – Tension field action  Additionally, limits are placed on the width-to-thickness ratios of the stiffeners to prevent local buckling  4.5 Longitudinal Web Stiffeners The main effect of installing longitudinal web stiffeners is the change in the allowable spacing between intermediate transverse stiffeners. These new spacing requirements are defined in section 10.10.7. This modified spacing may provide an overall reduction in material if the transverse stiffener spacing is increased sufficiently. The maximum transverse stiffener spacing is modified to 1.5hp, where hp is the maximum subpanel depth. However, this spacing limit is not necessarily an increase, since webs without longitudinal stiffeners have a maximum spacing of 3h, if h / w ≤ 150 . The creation of subpanels due the longitudinal stiffener reduces the slenderness of the web, and increases the web stiffness. Therefore; slender webs with longitudinal stiffeners are not subjected to the stiffener spacing limit of:  35  a≤  67500h when h / w > 150 . (h / w) 2  (99)  Clause 10.10.7.2 provides limits for the size and thickness of longitudinal stiffeners. The maximum width-to-thickness ratio is 200 / Fy , and the maximum width of the stiffener is 30t. This clause also specifies minimum values for the moment of inertia and the radius of gyration for the longitudinal stiffeners: I ≥ hw3[2.4(a / h) 2 − 0.13] r≥a  Fy  1900  (100) (101)  These limits ensure that the longitudinal stiffeners will not undergo local buckling. Clause 10.10.7.3 provides a number of adjustments to the parameters used to calculate the properties of transverse stiffeners when longitudinal stiffeners are present. The main difference is that typically the subpanel height is used instead of the full web height when calculating slenderness ratios. In this way, longitudinal stiffeners can significantly improve the effectiveness of transverse stiffeners.  4.6 Bearing Stiffeners Section 10.10.8 provides equations to determine the strength of the web in bearing. Webs can fail in bearing either due to crippling or yielding. The failure mode depends on the slenderness of the web. In a stockier web, the web will fail due to yielding. In a more slender web, crippling, or localized buckling, will govern. Unlike similar clauses, a limiting width-tothickness ratio is not provided to determine which condition will govern. Instead, a bearing resistance must be calculated for both possible modes of failure, and the smaller value is used as the overall bearing resistance. Two sets of equations are given for bearing at the end of the beam and along the span of the beam. The equations are similar in form, but have slightly different coefficients. Notably, these clauses include a distinct resistance factor for bearing, being smaller than the resistance factor for flexural compression. The equations for bearing within the span of the beam are giving in clause 10.10.8.1(a): Br = φbi w( N + 10t ) Fy  (102)  Br = 1.45φbi w2 Fy E  36  While the equations for bearing at the end of the beam are given in clause 10.10.8.1(b): Br = φbe w( N + 4t ) Fy  (103)  Br = 0.60φbe w2 Fy E  These equations are not the same as those given in S16. The S6 equations do not consider the distance from the flange to the toe of the web fillet weld, nor the depth of the web. The equations in S6 are derived from finite element analysis, while those from S16.1 are based on empirical analysis. If the bearing resistance of the web is less than the factored concentrated loads at the point of application, bearing stiffeners are required. S6 also includes equations that determine the bearing resistance of the bearing stiffeners.  37  5.0 Comparison of Codes for Plate Girder Design In this section the requirements for the design of plate girder design will be compared between the “Handbook of Steel Construction CAN/CSA-S16” and the “Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code CAN/CSA-S6-00”. Plate girders can be used in bridges, as crane girders in industrial buildings, and for long floor spans in other buildings. As their cross sections are chosen according to the load demand of the individual structure, they are most economical and efficient. Figure 21 shows plate girders employed in bridge span. Figure 22 shows plate girders as a part of building floor system.  Figure 21 – Plate girders in the Oak Street Bridge, Vancouver  38  Figure 22 – Plate girders in a building floor system  5.1 Design Requirement for Plate Girders The building code and bridge code are similar in the major aspects of design of the plate girders. The proportioning of flanges, web transverse stiffeners, and bearing stiffeners, design for resistance of combined shear and moment, and resistance to web crippling and yielding are similar in most parts in both the codes. Minor differences exist between the codes in the proportioning. The bridge code limits the minimum web thickness to 10mm while the building code has no such restriction (S6.06 Clause 10.7.2). This restriction in bridge code is to reduce the susceptibility of web to fatigue and brittle fracture. On the other hand, the building code restricts the web slenderness ratio, h/w, to less that 83000/Fy, (S16.01 Clause 14.3.1) where h = height of the web and clear distance between the flanges w = thickness of the web Fy = yield strength of the steel in MPa. For Fy =350 MPa, the slenderness ratio is limited to 237. This limit is waived if it is proven that the compression flange does not buckle under factored loads. In the case of bridge code, the 39  maximum slenderness ratio is 6000/√Fy, for webs stiffened with both longitudinal and transverse stiffeners (S6.06 Clause 10.10.4.2). This ratio is equal to 321. A comparison of the ratios at first indicates that the bridge code is more lenient with respect to web slenderness. However, it must be noted that the use of longitudinal web stiffener would reduce to the effective height of web and provides increased resistance to web buckling. In the case of building code, although the use of transverse stiffeners is implicit, the limit on slenderness ratio is for webs without longitudinal stiffeners. Hence, the building code is more lenient in limiting the web slenderness. However, the building code specifies that the structures subjected to fatigue must have web slenderness ratio less than 3150/√Fy, for webs with transverse stiffeners (S16.01 Clause 26.4.2). This is similar to the restriction in the bridge code for webs with transverse stiffeners (S6.06 Clause 10.17.2.5). Therefore, the bridge code is more conservative with proportioning of webs due to fatigue considerations. Similarly, for flanges the building code limits the maximum width-tothickness ratio to 60 (S16.01 Clause 13.5), whereas the bridge code restricts it to 30 (S6.06 Clause 10.10.3.4). Furthermore, the bridge code replaces the web height h, with 2dc where dc is the depth of compression portion of web, for the computation of web slenderness under flexural compression (S6.06 Clause 10.10.3.1). This implies that the depth of compression in the web must be equal to half of web height in order to be comparable to similar restrictions in the building code. Therefore, the bridge code considers the web as slender when (2dc/w) >1900/√Fy, whereas the building code considers it for h/w >1900/√ Fy. The reduction in moment resistance due to slender web, in building code is computed as, (S16.01 Clause 14.3.4),  A M r ' = M r 1 − 0.0005 w  Af  where  h  − 1900 w M f / φS        (104)  Mr = factored moment resistance of the plate girder Aw = web area Af = flange area Mf = maximum bending moment φ = resistance factor of steel = 0.90 S = elastic section modulus In bridge code, it is computed as (S6.06 Clause 10.10.4.3), 40   Aw M r ' = M r 1 −  300 A + 1200 A w cf    2d  c − 1900  w M f / φS        (105)  where φ = resistance factor of steel = 0.95 Acf = area of the compression flange The comparison of equations 104 and 105 yields two main differences. The web height in building code is replaced by 2dc in the bridge code and the factor of 0.0005 applied to the ratio of web area to flange area. The factor of 0.0005 Aw/Af is equivalent to Aw/2000Af. If compression flange area and web area are equivalent in equation 105, ratio of areas becomes Aw/1500Acf. This implies that the bridge code specifies a greater reduction in the moment resistance for plate girders with slender webs compared to the building code with a similar girder design. Moreover, for the web in flexural and axial compression, the slenderness ratio limit in building code includes φ factor applied to Cy, axial compression load at yield stress (S16.01 Table 2, Clause 11.2). The bridge code follows the previous edition of the building code, which does not include the φ factor (S6.06 Table 10.3). Both codes are similar in all other aspects of width-tothickness ratios. Further major differences between the codes are in two main areas: stiffeners and openings. The building code is more lenient with respect to the stiffeners than the bridge code. In building code, the intermediate transverse stiffeners are waived if the factored shear resistance, Vr, is greater than the shear force under factored load, Vf. In bridge code, the intermediate transverse stiffeners must be designed unless h/w ≤ 150, and Vr > Vf (S6.06 Clause 10.10.6.1). Another minor difference between the codes is in the computation of factored shear resistance. The building code specifies greater shear resistance for h/w ≤ 439√kv/Fy, where kv is the shear buckling coefficient (S16.01 Clause 13.4.1.1(a)). In contrast, the bridge code maintains that all webs with slenderness ratio less than 502√kv/ Fy, have same shear resistance (S6.06 Clause 10.10.5.1). In designing the transverse stiffeners, the building codes specifies the minimum moment of inertia of the stiffener about the web, I, as (h/50)4, whereas the bridge code specifies  41  I ≥ aw3j  (106)  where, a = spacing between the stiffeners  j = 2.5(h/a)2 – 2 ≥ 0.5 Furthermore, the area of the transverse stiffeners is specified in the building code as (S16.01 Clause 14.5.3),   aw  a/h 1 − As =   2  1 + ( a / h) 2      CYD       (107)  Where C = 1−  310000k v ≥ 0.10 Fy (h / w) 2  (108)  D = stiffener factor Y = ratio of specified minimum yield point of web steel to specified minimum yield point of the stiffener steel The area in Eq. (27) can be further decreased by a ratio of Vf / Vr. In the case of bridge code, the area of transverse stiffener is proportioned as (S6.06 Clause 10.10.6.2(b)),   aw  a/h 1 − As =   2  1 + ( a / h) 2     Vf  CD − 18w 2 Y ≥ 0   Vr    (109)  The comparison of the proportioning of As reveals that the bridge code allows lesser area of stiffeners than the building code. Moreover, the bridge code specifies the width of the plate used as stiffener to be greater than a quarter of the flange width. It should also be greater than (50+h/30) (S6.06 Clause 10.10.6.2). The building code does not have these restrictions.  42  Figure 23 – Transverse and longitudinal stiffeners in plate girders  Figure 24 – Plate girders with openings  In addition to the above differences, the building code addresses the connections of stiffeners, proportioning of the end panel and cover plates to the flanges. These details are not addressed in the bridge code. Instead, the proportioning of the longitudinal stiffeners and the design of transverse stiffeners in the presence of longitudinal stiffeners are detailed. In contrast, the 43  building code does not stipulate design procedures for longitudinal stiffeners. The plate girders in the buildings do not usually need the longitudinal stiffeners since it is more economical in buildings to employ other structural systems, such as trusses, if greater shear resistance is warranted. Figure 23 shows the transverse and longitudinal stiffeners in a plate girder for bridge. Furthermore, openings in the plate girders are explicitly addressed in the building code. For the plate girders utilized in the buildings, the openings are essential to run the building utilities. The openings are not a concern in case of bridges and hence, these are not addressed in the bridge code. Figure 24 shows the plate girders with openings. Table 2 summarizes the differences between the building and bridge codes in the design of plate girders, along with the relevant clauses.

Box girders are more stable and able to span greater distances than plate girders. However the design and construction of box girders are more difficult than plate girders. The shapes of box girders are usually rectangular or trapezoidal in and can be either open or closed, as shown in below.  Multi-Spine  Multi-Cell  Trapezoidal Rectangular  "Bathtub" Open top  Closed top Figure 25 – Common box sections  One component of the overall design procedure is to determine the capacity of the box girder prior to attaining composite action with the concrete deck.  This situation arises during  construction, when the concrete deck has not yet been poured, and after the concrete has been poured but has not yet hardened. In such cases, the box girder is designed as a non-composite steel section. This report will discuss this non-composite aspect of steel box girder design. CAN/CSA-S16-01 guides the designer to consult alternative reference material such as SSRC’s (Structural Stability Research Council) “Guide to Stability design criteria for metal structures” for the design of box girders.  6.1 Section Classification The maximum width-to- thickness ratios are presented as a constant divided by the square root of the specified yield strength of the steel. The limiting values are given in the table below:  45  Table 3 – Section classification  Class 1  Description of Element  Class 2  Class 3  Flanges of box girders  b 525 ≤ t Fy  b 525 ≤ t Fy  b 670 ≤ t Fy  Webs in flexural compression  h 1100 ≤ t Fy  h 1700 ≤ t Fy  h 1900 ≤ t Fy  6.2  Shear Strength  6.2.1 Shear strength of box girders based on CAN/CSA-S16-01 The shear design of box girders based on CSA-S16-01 is presented in this section. The design is applicable to design of both symmetric and mono-symmetric sections. The factored shear resistance, Vr, developed by the web of the flexural member shall be taken as Vr = ΦAw Fs  (110)  where Aw = Shear Area Fs = as follows (a) when  h k ≤ 439 v w Fy  (111)  Fs = 0.66 Fy (b) when 439  Kv h k < ≤ 502 v Fy w Fy  (112)  Kv h k < ≤ 621 v Fy w Fy  (113)  Fs = Fcri (c) when 502  Fs = Fcri + k a (0.50 Fy − 0.866 Fcri ) (d) when 621  kv h < Fy w  (114)  Fs = Fcre + k a (0.50 Fy − 0.866 Fcri )  46  kv = shear buckling coefficient (i) when a / h < 1 5.34 kv = 4 + ( a / h) 2 (ii) when a / h ≥ 1  (115)  (116)  4 (a / h) 2 a = distance between the stiffeners h = web depth kv = 5.34 +  Fcri = 290  Fy K v  (h / w) K a = aspect coefficient 1 = 1 + ( a / h) 2 Fcre =  180000kv (h / w) 2  (117) (118)  (119)  6.2.2 Shear strength of box sections according to SSRC To find the shear strength of box section, the approach defined by SSRC’s (Structural Stability Research Council) “Guide to Stability design criteria for metal structures” is also applicable because in such sections the shear strength is the combination of strength provided by both, the web before buckling and the diagonal tension after the buckling of the web. The shear strength of the box-section can thus be found by the following formula:  Vu = VB + VT VB = Dt w Fvcr VT =  Dt w FT 2( 1 + α 2 + α ) (120)  Where D = depth of the web between flanges d 0 = transverse stiffener separation  α = do / D t w = web thickness Fvcr = critical buckling shear stress  FT = tension-field stress 47  There are various models to calculate the post-buckling strength of the web of the box or plate girder. Basler (1963) was first to model the tension field action for the plate girder. Woulchuk and Mayrbourl (1980) suggest the application of the Basler’s model, which is based on the assumption of negligible bending rigidity of the flanges, for the box girders. According to Basler tension field model (1963) tension field stress and critical buckling shear stress are additive, assuming that tension field stress acts at 45 degree and the model uses the resulting combination of the principal stresses in the linear approximation of the Mises yield condition. This results in the following:  F  FT = Fyw 1 − vcr   F  vyw    (121)  where Fyw = yield stress for web in tension Fvyw = yield stress for web in shear Fvcr = critical buckling shear stress  Figure 26 – Shear buckling of web  48  6.3 Bending Strength of Box Sections SSRC guidelines are followed to estimate the flexural capacity of the box-section. According to SSRC guide lines, “The flexural strength of box sections is rarely governed by flexural torsional buckling. Instead the governing criteria is buckling of compression flange or yielding of the tension flange, which ever occurs first”. The bucking of the compression flange can calculated using the basic plate buckling equation:  π 2E σc = k 12(1 −ν 2 )(b / t ) 2  (122)  where E = modulus of elasticity ν = Poisson ratio k= buckling coefficient t = thickness of the compression flange b = width of the plate (distance between the webs for this case) The top flange is in the state of uniform compression. It can be assumed as a plate with simply supported edges. In other words, buckling coefficient can be assumed as k=4.0. If buckling stress is less than the yield stress then M r = ΦScσ c  (123)  Otherwise M r = ΦStσ t  (124)  where  σ t = yield stress in tension σ c = compression flange buckling stress St = section modulus for extreme tension fiber S c = section modulus for extreme compression fiber  49  6.4 Design Based on CMAA The analysis uses solid mechanics principles to calculate stresses at each panel in the box girder and then uses the equations in CMAA standard to determe the limiting stresses.  6.4.1 Sectional properties The neutral axis height, ў, and moment of inertia of the box girder section, Ixtot, are easily calculated using equations 121 and 122.  y=  I  ∑ yi A i A tot  xtot  = ∑I  (125)  xi  + ∑ A (y − y)2 i i  (126)  For the calculation of effective thickness of flanges or webs with the longitudinal stiffeners smeared, equations 123 and 124 are used. I xstiffenedplate = I xplate + ∑ I xstiffeners + ∑ A(yi − ystiffenedplate ) 2  (127)  1/ 3  t eff   12I xstiffenedplate  =   L plate    (128)  6.4.2 Stresses The factored moment and previously calculated sectional properties allow the calculation of the longitudinal stresses at any point in the section (assuming that plane sections remain plane). M y f (129) I xtot The factored shear (assumed to be applied along the line of symmetry) gives rise to a shear flow around the section, q, which is calculated using equation 126. The general distribution of shear around the section is given in Figure below: V q = f Dx + qo (130) I xtot σ=  50  VF  N. A.  Figure 27 - Shear flow around the section due to Vf  By taking a cut along the vertical line of symmetry of the bottom flange, the constant shear flow term, qo, is zero and the shear flow, q, can be evaluated traveling anti-clockwise around the section by evaluating Dx.  D x = − ∫os t yds − ∑ ysi Asi τ xy =  (131)  q t  (132)  Once the longitudinal (normal) and shear stresses are known, the principal stresses, σ1 and σ2, can be calculated (the maximum and minimum normal stresses in a plane, always perpendicular to each other and oriented in directions for which the shear stresses are zero).  σ1 , σ 2 =  σx + σy  2  2   σx + σy  2 ±   + τ xy 2    (133)  The principal stresses are calculated at several discrete points; the intersection of the flanges and web, the web stiffener locations, and at the neutral axis. 51  6.4.3 Yielding failure These principal stresses are used to check for local yielding failure of the cross section using the Von Mises failure criterion for plane stress, which is given in equation 130 (this assumes that failure occurs when the energy of distortion reaches the same energy for yield/failure in uniaxial tension). σ12 − σ1σ 2 + σ22 ≤ Fy2  (134)  The von Mises yield criterion was chosen over other yield failure criteria such as the Tresca criterion, as it is more conservative.  6.4.4 Buckling failure Equations presented in section 2 are used to check for local buckling of the sub panels between longitudinal stiffeners and also the wider panels with the longitudinal stiffeners smeared to create a plate with increased thickness. Lateral-torsional buckling is not evaluated for the closed cell box girder, as it is unlikely that this failure mode will dominate for typical box girders. However if the height to width ratio of the box is relatively large, lateral-torsional buckling may dominate and needs to be evaluated.  6.4.5 Stiffeners No provision for design of stiffeners has been made in the box girder formatted spreadsheet, buckling of the longitudinal stiffeners can be avoided through conformance with slenderness limits given in the Standard.  52  7.0 Introduction to Formatted Spreadsheet The formatted spreadsheet applies macros in Microsoft Excel to perform the required calculations. Therefore, the user should have enabled macros in Excel for the spreadsheet to perform properly. The formatted spreadsheet starts with a diagram or an image describing the problem in the description area. This is shown in the following figure:  Figure 28 – Description section  The next section is the input section. The user is required to enter the value for the parameters in column G. Column H is the unit of the parameter, Column B represents the full name of variable or parameter. Column C represents the short variable name which is used in the equations. This is shown in the figure below:  53  Figure 29 – Input section  The last section is the calculations section. The user does not require to enter any inputs here. Column E represents the equations used. The references for the equations or formulas can be found in column I. This is shown in the figure below:  Figure 30 – Calculation section  To perform the calculations, the user is required to press Alt/F8 simultaneously, to bring up the macro table FormatSheet is already selected, therefore only the Enter key needs to be pressed.  Figure 31 – Macro window  54  The macro fills in all equal signs, and then parses the equations from text to working formulae in column G with relative referencing.  Figure 32 – Equations and referrences  If the user wants to change something in the input, as long as it is the numerical value in column G is changed, the entire spreadsheet will immediately change the results. Therefore, it is not required to press Alt/F8 again.  55  8.0 Design Using Formatted Spreadsheet Formatted spreadsheets are developed for ease of design. The spreadsheets follow the same approach given by the Standard and presented in the preceding sections.  8.1 Plate Girder Spreadsheet The plate girder spreadsheet consists of three sub sheets. The first sheet is based on CAN/CSAS16 standard. The second sheet is design based on CAN/CSA-S6-00 standard. The third sheet is design of plate girder based on the combination of both codes. The spreadsheets are applicable to both doubly-symmetric mono-symmetric sections. The figure below illustrates the section and side view of the mono-symmetric plate girder.  Figure 33 – Side view and section of mono-symmetric plate girder  The following sections provide complete user guide for the plate girder spreadsheet.  56  8.1.1 User input The spreadsheet requires the user to enter the parameters such as material strength properties, length of span, maximum factored shear and moment in the span and section geometry (single/double symmetry). Figure below illustrates the input parameters.  INPUT LOAD PARAMETERS span  L  =  factored moment  Mf  =  6200[kNm]  factored shear  Vf  =  2200[kN]  max.

However, the user is also given the option to enter his/her desirable dimension for further calculation. This is shown in the following figure INPUT GIRDER DIMENSIONS Select Girder Parameters web thickness web depth compression flange width compression flange thickness tension flange width tension flange thickness  w h b_com t_com b_ten t_ten  = = = = = =  18[mm] 1600[mm] 500[mm] 32[mm] 500[mm] 32[mm]  Figure 35 - Girder parameters  57  8.1.3 Girder resistance calculation The spreadsheet calculates the moment resistance of the section based on girder dimensions given. This is dependent on the class of web and flanges. Next, the spreadsheet calculates the shear resistance of the girder. The shear resistance depends on the thickness of the web, the presence of transverse stiffeners and their spacing. The analysis also checks if transverse stiffeners are required. Then the combined action of the applied shear and moment is checked to ensure that it has sufficient capacity.  8.1.4 Transverse stiffeners The spreadsheet allows the user to enter the required data such as number of stiffeners, shape and dimension of the stiffeners. This is shown in the following figure:  INPUT TRANSVERSE STIFFENERS stiffener type stiffener furnishing stiffener yield strength  stiff_type stiff_furn Fy_stiff  = = =  plate pair 350  stiffener thickness primary leg stiffener width primary leg stiffener thickness secondary leg stiffener width secondary leg stiffener effective length factor  ts_a bs_a ts_b bs_b K  = = = = =  6 200 12 100 0.75  angle/plate pair/single [MPa] [mm] [mm] [mm] [mm] >=0.75  Figure 36 - Transverse stiffener parameters  Furthermore, the spreadsheet checks to see if the stiffeners have the adequate slenderness and capacity.  8.1.5 Bearing stiffeners The spreadsheet allows the user to enter the required data for the check of the bearing stiffeners. The spreadsheet accounts for both interior and end bearing stiffeners. This is shown in following figure:  58  INPUT BEARING STIFFENERS factored load performance factor  Cf φbi  = =  1600 0.8  weld performance factor performance factor  φω φbe  = =  0.7 0.75  length of the bearing plate flange to web weld depth bearing stiffeners under load end bearing stiffeners end stiffener width end stiffener thickness intermediate stiffener width intermediate stiffener thickness stiffener contact length parameter  N d_weld bea_stiff_i bea_stiff_e bs_e ts_e bs_i ts_i cpl n  = = = = = = = = = =  300 6 exist exist 125 16 125 12 100 1.34  [kN]  [mm] [mm] exist/none exist/none [mm] [mm]  [mm]  Figure 37 - Bearing stiffener parameters  Bearing resistance must be calculated for both possible modes of failure, namely localized buckling and yielding. The smaller value is noted as the bearing resistance by the spreadsheet.  8.1.6 Weld design and girder weight computation The spreadsheet checks the adequacy of weld between flanges and web (two fillet welds each). The required user inputs for this check are the weld size, length and spacing. The figure below illustrates the user input; INPUT WELD DESIGN Select Weld Between Flanges and Web (two fillet welds each) weld size w_size = intermittend weld length w_length = w_spacing spacing on centre = Figure 38 - Input weld design  8 200 400  [mm] [mm] [mm]  The spreadsheet calculates the shear flow per length of the girder and checks to see if the weld shear resistance is adequate. Finally, the spreadsheet computes the total weight per girder. The spreadsheet requires the user to enter the density of steel in kg/mm3.  59  8.2 Box Girder Spreadsheet For the design of closed box girders, a formatted spreadsheet was developed which checks for local buckling or yielding of a monosymmetric box girder stiffened longitudinally and transversely, with webs and flanges each stiffened longitudinally with two stiffeners. The spreadsheet contains of two sub spreadsheets. The first spreadsheet is based on CAN/CSA-S16 standard and SSRC guidelines. The second spreadsheet is based on basic solid mechanics principles and CMAA standard.

If there are no stiffeners, the user has to enter “none” in the input section for stiffeners The spreadsheet checks for the web-crippling and compression flange buckling and calculates the ultimate moment resistance of the box girder using SSRC guidelines. Furthermore, the shear resistance of the girder is calculated using both the CSA-S16 code and SSRC guidelines as described in sections 6.1 to 6.3. The second spreadsheet follows the exact procedure and equations explained in section 6.4.  62  9.0 Fabrication Considerations Evaluation of the economics of design often includes a perception that least weight and least cost are synonymous. Although cost of a structure is related to the weight of steel material, there are numerous other considerations in purchasing, fabricating, shipping, and erection and effective use of material locally which may override the decision to aim for a least weight structure. Some of these considerations require familiarity with purchasing, fabricating and erecting processes. Various fabricators have their own processes, and it is difficult for a designer to produce a design to satisfy everyone. Fabricators should be allowed flexibility in detailing, with designer approval, to make adjustments to the number and location of splices. Material content is only one element in the cost equation and will represent about 20% to 30% of the total ‘in place’ cost in fairly standard bridges. The total rate per tonne (metric = 1000 kg) of steel depends on several factors, including: Complexity of details Quality control requirements Amount of welding, including grinding, type and amount of inspection etc… The amount of repetition and reuse of assembly jigs Size and number of individual pieces to be fabricated Other demands on shop space, particularly when large box girders are involved The access for erection Number of girder field splices The allowable fabrication tolerances are defined in W59, clauses 5.8 and 5.9. The tolerances in the individual pieces that make up a continuous span will be additive.  9.1 Materials Weathering steel is now the norm for bridges in Canada. Painted steels are used in environments not considered acceptable for the weathering process, such as continued wetness due to climate and precipitation, proximity to airborne chlorides e.g. near the sea coast or above a high traffic volume expressway, and exposure to harsh industrial environments. In many cases weathering steel is selected even when a paint system is to be applied due its lower strength to cost ratio and its ability to form a superior base for paint systems. A designer needs to be aware of the plate sizes available so that spices in webs and flanges are kept to a minimum, particularly longitudinal splices which should be avoided. The maximum 63  length of plate that may be supplied is dependent on the thickness of the plate and the material type, and will vary from mill to mill and hence local fabricators should be consulted. The designer should also be aware of other factors which influence material cost such as: There is a small premium on plates longer than 18 meters (about 4%) Plates less than 9 mm thick and more than 25mm thick attract a premium of from 4% - 8% Small orders also incur mill extras and small quantities of any one plate thickness should be avoided. As a general guide the maximum piece-weight for handling in the shop is of the order of 50 tonnes, and the optimum length for the shop is about 27m although these values are increasing.  9.2 Proportioning of Spans When there is choice in the positioning of piers for a continuous bridge. The end spans should be approximately 75% of the length of the main span, this will permit balancing of dead and live load moments, reduce the potential for uplift at the abutments, and permit the most economical design when proportioning the girder.  9.3 Selection of a Girder Cross Section For compositely designed continuous spans, the designer should start with a main span to girder depth ration of approximately 28 for box girders and 26 for I girders. On bridges where there are no pedestrians the bridge may be made more slender due to the reduced deflection requirements, ratios of 30 to 34 may be used successfully.  9.4 Webs The optimum web thickness and subsequent number of transverse stiffeners depends on the depth of the web and should be considered. For example, it is economically advantageous to have an unstiffened web if the girder is 1200 mm deep or less. The economics of unstiffened webs decreases as web depth increases. Sometimes the minimum web thickness is dictated by the method of construction such as launching, in this case thicker webs will usually be the economical solution because of local bearing, buckling, and crippling considerations, as well as overall stability.  64  Changes in web thickness should coincide with either a field splice or a maximum length of mill material available for the thickness and depth of web being considered. In addition, it will usually be found satisfactory to avoid grinding or to use only nominal grinding to touch up the profile of full penetration butt welds in the web when using the submerged arc process. In many cases it will be found economical to maintain a constant thickness of web throughout the girder, varying the spacing of intermediate transverse stiffeners according to the shear diagram and possible eliminating transverse stiffeners in the areas of low shear. The recommended minimum web thickness is ½ inch as thinner plate is subject to excessive distortion from welding. Web thickness increments should be 1/16 inch up to a plate thickness of ¾ inch, use 1/8 increments up to 1 inch, if the web plate needs to be thicker than 1 inch, use ¼ inch increments. For web splices use the submerged arc process and avoid grinding if possible, or use only nominal grinding to touch up the profile of full penetration butt welds in the web. Web shop splices should be at least 10 feet apart and at least 6 inches away from a flange splice or transverse stiffener, in order to facilitate testing of the weld.  9.5 Stiffeners Welding of bearing stiffeners to the bottom flange should be specified as fillet welds, use of full penetration welds is costly and can cause distortion of the bottom flange, thus making it difficult to achieve the desired flatness for the sole plate or bearing. For composite bridge girders, stiffeners welded to the top flange throughout do not alter the fatigue category of the flange (already Class ‘C’ because of the studs). The use of both transverse and longitudinal stiffeners is difficult to avoid on deeper girders. However every effort should be made to place longitudinal stiffeners on one side of the web, with transverse stiffeners on the other so that interferences occur only where the longitudinal stiffener meets the double sided web stiffeners used on I girders for connection of cross frames. Fabricators have indicated that flat bars are typically more economical than plates for stiffeners. The clear distance between longitudinal stiffeners should be no less than 24 inches, to accommodate automated welding equipment. 65  It is highly preferable not to have several stiffener sizes for a girder. Bearing stiffener thickness that matches the flange thickness is suggested. Bearing stiffeners should be thick enough to preclude the need for multiple bearing stiffeners at any given bearing, as multiple stiffeners present fabrication difficulties and usually are not needed. It is very important that the width be sufficient to provide clearance for field welding of diaphragm members to the stiffener. Four inches or more of clearance between the web face and a vertical weld on a gusset plate/diaphragm member is required for good welding access. Three inches or more of clearance is needed between a gusset plate/diaphragm member and a flange. For box girders, the current trend is to longitudinally stiffen the webs and flanges and use internal diaphragms, without the requirement for transverse stiffeners.  9.6 Flanges When deciding how to fit the flange sizes of a girder to the moment envelope, the designer must consider the cost implications as well as technical factors. The trade-off to be considered here is the cost of the material saved by reducing the flange size versus the cost of the full penetration but welded splice in the material including; material preparation, fitting up, welding, gouging, grinding, inspection and possibly repairs and so can involve a considerable number of manhours. In I girders and open top box girders, the designer may change the flange width or thickness or both. It is usually more economical to produce several flange splices simultaneously, this process involves butting two thicknesses of plate, wide enough to produce 2,4 or 6 flanges, producing one butt weld across them and then flame cutting (stripping or ripping) the flanges longitudinally. Thus by making the flanges a constant width between field splices, the costly procedure of butt welding individual plates is avoided, although this is not always possible e.g. a constant width may require a flange which is locally beyond a practical thickness. If flange widths are varied, it is best to change the width at field splices only Top and bottom flanges should be the same width. Girders in positive bending that are composite with a slab can have a top flange narrower than the bottom flange, but the weight savings achieved are typically not worth the reduced lateral stability prior to hardening of the deck. Also, if continuous construction is used, the top flange width would normally have to be increased for the negative moment sections, which creates slab-forming difficulties. 66  The desirable maximum flange thickness is 3 inches. Grade 50 and HPS70W steels are not available in thicknesses greater than 4 inches. Weld time is disproportionately increased when splicing plates thicker than 3 inches. A 10-foot minimum length should be used for any given flange segment on a girder. It is only economical to introduce a flange splice if it is possible to save about 800 – 1000 pounds, these numbers are approximate and are a function of the current cost of steel plate. Flange thickness increments should be 1/8 inch for thicknesses from ¾ to 1 inch, ¼ inch from 1 to 3 inches, and ½ inch from 3 to 4 inches. A change in thickness should be made at a slope of 1 in 2½. Flange thicknesses should be sufficient to preclude the need for lateral bracing. Lateral bracing is to be avoided because it creates fatigue-sensitive details and is costly to fabricate and install. Flange splices should be located at least 6 inches away from a web splice or transverse stiffener, in order to facilitate testing of the weld. Splices should be at least 10 feet apart. Field splices are good locations to change flange sizes. Top flanges for open box girders should follow the suggestions for plate girder flanges, except for the stability criteria. Top and bottom flanges of closed box girders and bottom flanges of open box girders should extend past the centerline of each web a minimum of 2 inches to allow for automated welding equipment. Flange width is somewhat dependent on the need for enough room inside the box girder to allow the passage of inspection personnel. Provision must be made for entrance to the box girder by inspection personnel, typically a hatch-type, lockable door at each end of the box is sufficient. For wide bottom flanges of box girders, plate distortion during fabrication and erection can be a problem. Designer should check with fabricators when using bottom tension flange plates of less than 1” thickness in order to determine whether practical stiffness needs are met. In no case should bottom tension flanges be less than ½” thick.  9.7 Field Splices The gap between girder ends should be made large enough to accommodate normal shop tolerances. A dimension of 10mm is commonly used, smaller values would be difficult to work to, and unnecessarily expensive. 67  Designer should use one bolt diameter throughout a structure, if practical, and ensure that it is physically possible to install bolts in their specified locations. When welded field splices are specified, usually it is because aesthetics are paramount and a bolted splice is deemed unattractive. They have several disadvantages compared with bolted and are rarely seen. It can be difficult to detail an all welded splice to have acceptable fatigue and fracture performance, not to mention the problems of welding (including possible repairs), grinding and inspecting the welds in the field. Temporary connections are required to hold the parts in alignment during welding, and the accuracy of fabrication and fit up is more critical than with a bolted splice.  9.8 Fatigue Details Flanges with welded shear studs and a web with welded transverse stiffeners both fall into Category ‘C’. Grinding is expensive and if carried out improperly can be detrimental to the fatigue life of the structure. Each tension flange butt weld should be radiographed, compression flange butt splices should be radio-graphed randomly (form 10% to 25%) and only butt splices in webs in critical tensile areas (e.g. 20% of the web adjacent to a tension flange) should be radiographed. A radius should be provided at the end of the gusset to eliminate a sharp notch, reduce the stiffness at the tip and minimize longitudinal stresses at the tip of the attachment.  68  10.0 Erection Considerations A well conceived economical steel bridge requires consideration of its erection at two stages in the design process. Firstly, erection must be considered at the concept stage because it typically represents about 30% of the superstructure cost and therefore the most economical arrangement cannot evolve without its consideration. Truss versus girder, curved versus parallel chords and flanges, continuity, main member dimensions, drop in spans, pier arrangements, etc… all have significance at this stage. Secondly, erection must be considered at the detail stage. Details of splices, diaphragms, bracing and pier members are very significant contributors to erection cost. Those elements which are in the control of the designer should be designed to facilitate construction wherever possible. Field labor is very expensive, therefore keep things simple. Realistic tolerances must be built into the system wherever shop fabricated elements meet field construction. Access to splices, anchor bolts and bearings and adequate space to install jacks is very necessary for proper installation, inspection and future maintenance. Constant depth or Curved chords: Strictly from an erection point of view, constant depth girders have the advantage. Pier sections of haunched girders frequently require extraordinary effort in shipping, handling and turning because of their increased bulk. Constant depth girders are much easier to ship, to turn and to lift and block. Plate girder or box girder:From an erection point of view, the box girders are usually preferable to the plate girders because there are fewer pieces of girder and less bracing. Box girders are reasonably stable in shipping, handling and free cantilever, whereas plate girders, particularly if slender in flange width, can pose stability problems in shipping, and handling and frequently require top chord stiffening trusses in cantilever erection. Plate girders can often be nested during shipping whereas the internal diaphragms present in common box girders prevent nesting. The particular configuration of box selected has a very significant effect on the erection cost of the bridge. Unless circumstances dictate boxes larger than about 3.5 m in width should be avoided because they will cause excessive shipping and handling problems and, in the limit, will require a longitudinal splice. Box girders having more than two webs should be avoided except for special situations such as an axial girder cable stayed bridge.  69  Flange width has an impact on the stability of the girder during handling and erection. According to an industry rule of thumb, I-girders will be stable if their length is less than or equal to 60 times the flange width. If this is exceeded the erector and fabricator may need to use temporary bracing to handle and erect the girder. The maximum economy will result if the fabricator/erector is permitted freedom to choose the splice locations that best suit his equipment. If the strength requirements of the splices are spelled out in general terms in the drawings and specifications, then the Contractor can detail the bridge with his preferred splice locations for the Engineer’s approval. It is common to have all holes drilled or punched sub-size and then reamed to full size in full girder assembly of not fewer than three girder sections, laid on blocking corresponding to the cambered shape. If this method is performed accurately, all components should fit precisely in the field and the required bridge geometry will be attained. This method has the advantage of minimum time spent on field fitting and rework, as well as optimum quality in the connection. However it should be noted that the large assemblies tie up a lot of shop space and reaming is very time consuming. While angle bracing and diaphragms are very cheap to fabricate, they are generally very expensive to erect, due to the cost of the crane and labor for erection. In order to minimize these costs, the designer should not use bracing and diaphragms indiscriminately, but only were strictly necessary.  70  11.0 Conclusions This report has outlined the CAN/CSA S16.1 approach to the design of doubly symmetric plate girders. The Standard gives a prescriptive method which was easily transferable to formatted spreadsheets, this report expands on the clause equations to give some explanation of their derivation and why they are applied. In order to expand on the applicability of the spreadsheet, equations for analyzing the lateral-torsional buckling resistance of monosymmetric plate girders was obtained from CAN/CSA-S6-06 (Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code). There is a high level of confidence in using the plate girder spreadsheet, as it is based entirely on CSA standards equations and clauses. Design of steel box girders is based on a more fundamental approach was required. This approach is influenced by equations given in the Crane Code (CMAA Specifications #70 & #74), which allows plate elements of box girders subject to combined linearly varying normal edge stress and shear stress to be checked for buckling. A formatted spreadsheet was created for the design of closed cell box girders, however unlike the spreadsheets for the design of plate girders which are based on limit states design, this spreadsheet is based on allowable or working stress design. The second spreadsheet is also developed for the design of box girders based on CAN/CSA S16.1 Standard and the equations provided in SSRC’s Guide to Stability Design Criteria for Metal Structures. To ease the use of spreadsheet, a complete manual is provided in  the report. This report also includes a discussion of economical and practical aspects associated with the design, fabrication and erection of steel plate and box girders. The general considerations given are true across North America, and will continue to be true for the foreseeable future. However the reader should bear in mind that the exact values given will vary from one geographical location to the next and also with time. In any case it is of paramount importance to collaborate with and receive input from local fabricators when designing plate and box girders, in order to ensure a practical and economical design.  71  References [1]  Basler, K., Thurlimann,B.
