Special considerations in curved segmental post-tensioned bridges

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Segmental concrete bridges have many design and construction considerations that are specific to their specific geometry and assembly. Time dependent staging, complex geometry, and multiple distinct types of construction for curved segmental bridges make them a unique challenge for designers and contractors. This presentation covers the specifics unique to curved concrete segmental bridges, including long-term durability. Cast-in-place and precast bridges are discussed for each of the major types of segmental construction methods, including balanced cantilever and span-by-span.
