... 1 Proposed Modification to AASHTO Cross-Frame Analysis and Design Cross-frames are important structural components that serve many functions throughout the service life of steel I-girder bridges. They primarily act as stability braces to enhance the lateral-torsional buckling resistance of the bridge girders during erection and deck construction.
From page 2...
... 2 Proposed Modification to AASHTO Cross-Frame Analysis and Design The objectives were systematically addressed through a series of field experiments, parametric finite element analyses, and weigh-in-motion studies (considering high-resolution data from 16 sites across the country)
From page 3...
... Summary 3 attributed to the assumptions inherent with the postprocessing procedures (i.e., converting equivalent beam forces into cross-frame member forces)
