Curved Precast Concrete Bridges State-of-the-Art Report, 2012, 1st Edition, (CB-01-12)
Addresses how to build curved structures with corded & curved precast prestressed concrete girders.
This is a new comprehensive methodology to analyze the lateral stability of long slender bridge girders. Technology has enabled the manufacture of increasingly longer girders. Slender girders present a lateral stability concern. Each stage of a girder’s transition from the casting bed to its final location in the bridge is considered. These conditions include when...
