The use of Plate Girders gives scope to vary the girder sections to suit the loads carried at different positions along the bridge. The designer is free to choose the thickness of web and size of flange to suit the internal forces at different positions along the length of the span, though it must be remembered that too many changes may not lead to economy, because of the additional fabrication work. Splices are expensive, whether bolted or welded. Often, the girders have parallel flanges, that is, they have a constant depth. However, with plate girders, the designer can also choose to vary the depth of the girder along its length. For longer spans it is quite common to increase the girder depth over intermediate supports. For spans below about 50m, the choice (constant or varying depth) is often governed by aesthetics. Above 50m, varied depth may offer economy because of the weight savings possible in mid span regions. The variation in depth can be achieved either by straight launching (tapered girders) or by curving the bottom flange. The shaped web, either for a variable depth or constant depth girder with a vertical camber, is easily achieved by profile cutting during fabrication. Generally, webs have a high depth/thickness ratio and this leads to the need for intermediate transverse web stiffeners in regions of high shear (near supports)
AT Goodluck we have fabricated over 10000 MT of Steel Plate girders for the following applications
