Bhopal metropolis, the center of India, has experienced phenomenal growth in population in the last two decades. So, to meet the traffic demands, Metro Rail Transport started. Bhopal Metro Rail Corporation; is constructing some phase of Metro Rail to be of elevated one. There are different structural elements for a typical box girder bridge. The present study focus on the parametric study of single cell box girder bridges curved in plan. For the purpose of the parametric study, five box girder bridge models with constant span length and varying curvature. In order to validate the finite element modeling method, an example of box Girder Bridge is selected from literature to conduct a validation study. The example box girder is modelled and analysed in SAP 2000 and the responses are found to be fairly matching with the results reported in literature. The ratio of responses is expressed in terms of a parameter. From the responses it is found that; the parameters like torsion, bending moment, and deflection is increasing as curvature of the bridges increase.
