A Shear Lag Analysis for Composite Box Girders with Deformable Connectors

V. Křístek


A method is proposed for shear lag analysis which can be applied to steel-concrete composite box girders. The proposed method uses harmonic analysis and allows the determination of shear lag effects from simple calculations so that the method is regarded as a design aid. The character of the method can illustrate the influence of certain key parameters upon the extent of the shear lag effect.
