Investigation of Ultimate Strength of Composite Open-Web Joist-Girders
Showalter, Sheldon Lee
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this research was to study several methods of generating composite action using open-web joist-girders, designed and manufactured by Nucor Corporation. In addition to comparing the relative performance of these systems, it was intended to determine whether the current accepted design procedure for composite joists could be extended to joist-girders.

(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2009-06-01), FHWA/VTRC 09-CR15Precast/prestressed concrete girders are commonly used in bridge construction in the United States. The application and diffusion of the prestress force in a pretensioned girder cause a vertical tension force to develop ...
