Normal stress of 20 PC bridges, with wide flanged box girder, is analyzed with the methods of spatial plate/shell FEM, plane frame FEM and DIN 1075. According to the stress results, the paper makes an analysis of shear lag efficient of three main sections in girders. Available method of equivalent simple supported span length of different sections is advised according to DIN 1075. The basal research will make the new bridge specification being more scientific and reasonable.
