Numerical Simulation of a Steel – Concrete Composite Box Girder Using Fe Approach
In this paper, a three dimensional (3D) finite element (FE) model of an opened section steel – concrete composite
box (OSSCCB) girder was analyzed to investigate the effect of the intermediate diaphragms on the load carrying capacity of
the girder having a span of 30 m by using nonlinear inelastic analysis. The numerical model was verified with experimental
results to ensure the accuracy of the FE model.
