Abstract
This article presents a mechanical formulation to estimate the strength of transversally stiffened steel plate girders subjected to patch loading, in this particular case, with closely space stiffeners. Steel plate girders with closely spaced stiffeners are occasionally found in bridge design and for such cases, the current EN1993-1-5 rules underestimate the strength of the webs to transverse forces. A FE-based parametric investigation is conducted to estimate the web strength to patch loading. ...
