Design a plate girder for a simply supported bridge deck beam with
clear span 24m, subjected to dead load 20 KN/m( excluding self weight ), live
load 10 kN/m and two concentrated loads of 200 KN each at 6m from each end.
Assume that the top compression flange of plate girder is restrained laterally
and prevented from rotating . Use Fe 415 grade steel. Design as an plate girder
with intermediate stiffeners and utilising tension field action

= 1.5 ( 20 + 10 ) x 24 +1.5 x 2 x 200
= 1680 KN

Self weight of girder = total factored load

Factored u.d.l = 1.5 x 38.4
Total u.d.l= 20 + 10 + 8.4 = 57.6 kN/m
= 38 kN/m Factored Concentrated loads = 1.5 x 200
= 300 kN (Each)
