Transverse force denotes the load which is applied perpendicular to the flange in the plane of the web. The loading is usually free and transient, as for crane runway girders or bridge girders during launching, so that in this case transverse stiffeners are not appropriate. A concentrated transverse loading is often referred to as patch loading. The collapse behaviour of girders subjected to transverse loading is characterized by web yielding, buckling or crippling. A separation of these three phenomena accepted in the former standards is not reasonable. The paper describes the design procedure used in the current Eurocodes, shows its application in numerical example and informs about new improvements.
