• A study of stiffness of steel bridge cross frames 

    Wang, Weihua, active 2013 (2013-08-23)
    Cross frames are critical components in steel bridge systems. Cross frames brace girders against lateral torsional buckling and assist in distributing live loads to girders during the service life of the bridge. In curved ...
  • Skewed Cross Frame Connection Stiffness 

    Battistini, Anthony David (2010-09-20)
    Cross frames and diaphragms are essential to the stability of straight steel girder bridge systems as they help to resist lateral torsional buckling during construction and horizontal loading conditions. In skewed bridge ...
  • Stiffness and fatigue behavior of cross frames for steel bridge applications 

    Battistini, Anthony David (2014-10-30)
    Cross frames are critical for the stability of straight and curved steel bridges. Conventional cross frames are often fabricated from steel angles which are welded to gusset plates through one leg only. Due to this ...
