The box girder component is a major breakthrough in the construction field for its effective geometry behavior and high torsional rigidity. However, the analysis and design of the box girder are complex due to its three dimensional behavior i.e. torsion, distortion and bending in longitudinal and transverse direction. In this paper, the use of finite element model in evaluating the stresses behavior for segmental box girder diaphragm under static loading is demonstrated. The analysis is carried out for both permanent and variable actions based on Eurocode. Parametric study is carried out to evaluate the effects of different parameters on the stress behavior for box girder. This study contributes to a better insight of the stress behavior for box girder such that, under service, the stresses developed will not contribute to significance structural cracks that will affect the serviceability of the structure.
