Abstract: 

In this paper, the semi continuum method is developed for analysis of skew bridges with arbitrary number of longitudinal girders. In this study, two assumptions are considered and in the second assumption, a larger region of the deck contributes in load distribution. Therefore, the load distribution becomes more smooth. Results are compared with the grillage analysis method. The grillage method is considered as an accurate method in OHBDC Code. This comparison shows that the error of the first assumption is 37% with respect to grillage method and for second assumption, it is 4%.
