QUESTION: For Skewed Bridge when the Skew Correction Factor box was checked the flexure result was comparable to a simply supported span with no skew ? Please explain.


For Slab Cross sections ,The distribution factor is calculated as the reciprocal of the distribution width per LRFD CONBOX does not adjust the shear or moment values for the skew correction factor. Since it’s a slab bridge there is no assigned exterior and interior girder and that’s the reason the program is not showing any results for shear check( Int. & ext. ).
