Internal Moments and Forces in Beam Bridges book
The rules of statics presented in TGC Volumes 1 and 2 allow the internal moments and forces (My, Mz, Mx, Vy, Vz, N) to be calculated for beams that are either straight or slightly curved. This chapter covers in more detail the specifics of bridges when calculating these moments and forces (loads and actions, modelling of the structure, internal moments and forces) in addition to the statics for curved and skew bridges.
