Abstract: In the present study, modeling and analysis of a three-lane three-span box bridge has been carried out by using finite element software STAAD pro.v8i. The study has been execute to find the effect of skew angle on all bride slabs (top slab, bottom slab, outer walls, inner walls) under various loads (dead load, live load, surfacing load, earth pressure, temperature and live load surcharge) and their combinations using IRC 6:2016. Skew angles taken for study ranges from 00 to 700 with an interval of 100 . Parameters that are mainly examined are longitudinal moments, transverse moments, torsional moments, shear forces and displacements. It has been observed that with the increase of skew angle all the parameters increases with the increase of skew angles in all slabs.
