Featured Application: The conclusions of this paper could be useful for practicing structural Engineers, mainly in early stages of the design of arch bridges. Abstract: In the design process of an arch bridge, the designer may decide to stiffen the hangers linking the arch and the deck, usually in order to reduce the internal forces or the deflections. In this paper, the effect of stiffened hangers on the longitudinal in-plane structural behavior of arch bridges is studied. Then, the effect ofdoi:10.3390/app8020258 fatcat:qpedgl33nbfr7kienvnd4soeiu
