Distribution Factors for Construction Loads and Girder Capacity Equations

The objectives of this study are I) to compute distribution factors for girder moments and girder end-reactions for construction-stage structural configurations and loading conditions, 2) to provide a practical means by which such distribution factors can be determined for use in design, and 3) to revise previously-developed girder capacity equations (for wind load and gravity load) to account for increased girder sweep.
