Effect of Curvature Radius and Transverse Distribution of Load on Shear Lag for Curved Box Girders
Based on fundamental theory and variational principle of thin-walled curved beam and taking into account of coupling effect of bend and shear lag, the paper mainly discusses the variation of curvature radius and the transverse distribution of load in order to analyze effect of shear lag in curved box girder. By means of variational method, the paper derivates the elastic differential equation and boundary conditions and gives numerical results of equations finally, results are obtained by the Galerkin method. It shows that the curvature radius and the transverse distribution of load in the shear lag of curved box girder is very important by comparing the calculating results.
