Paper Title:
Load Distribution for Moment and Shear on Skewed Bridge Structures
  Abstract

Based on FEA for three bridge models with varying skew angles, the effect of skew angle on the design moment and shear of skewed bridge structures was studied and also compared to AASHTO specifications. The results show that, generally, ASSHTO-LFD covers FEM in moment distribution factor, but a little less in shear distribution factor, and that, however, AASHTO-LRFD reduces moment distribution factor below AASHTO-LFD and near to FEM, but increases shear distribution factor a lot beyond AASHTO-LFD and FEM.
