This paper present a literature review related to Curved span PSC Box girder. The curvilinear nature of box girder bridges with their complex deformation patterns and stress fields have led designers adopt conservative methods for analysis & design. Recent literature on curved girder bridges to understand the complex behavior. In the present study an attempt has been made to study the Significance of PSC Box Girders & Type, Curvature effect of span, live load effect, wrapping stress in curved Box girder, Shear Lag & Torsion effect due to curvature. Comparative study of analysis & design of PSC T-girder with PSC Box girder using software Staad - pro, ANSYS, MIDAS and CSI Bridge. Normal & Skew Box Girder with different geometrical combination has been included.
