fib 94 Precast Concrete Bridge Continuity Over Piers PRINT (fib-94-20)
This Bulletin 94 is a joint publication between PCI and fib.
Concrete bridges are an important part of today's road infrastructure, and an important part of those bridges is precast concrete. The use of precast concrete enables all the advantages of an industrialized process to be fully utilized.
In 2004, the fib commission on prefabrication published its Bulletin 29, Precast concrete bridges, which, in addition to the history of prefabricated bridges, also gave an overview of the different bridge types and structural systems. Bulletin 94, Precast concrete bridge continuity over piers, elaborates on one specific structural system: the continuous bridge. In this publication, fib Task Group 6.5, Precast Concrete Bridges, discusses in detail how to achieve continuity over the piers with precast elements. This bulletin bundles the experiences of experts in the field of bridge design so that less experienced designers will be able to identify the points of attention and make a correct design. In addition to the theoretical considerations, the principles are tested against three realizations in the USA and Europe.
