Rapid Construction of curved Bridge Spans using Super-Tee

The project is to introduce Precast Super-Tee (U-shaped) curved girders as a substitute for straight girders currently in use for precast curved bridge spans. Typically in Pakistan the use of straight girders for curved bridge spans results in poor aesthetics, problematic construction and complex design. It is intended to ensure safe casting, pre-stressing and launching …

Fundamentals of Bridge Maintenance and Inspection by New York State department of transportation

Bridges, including those on local roads, are integral elements of our highway systems. Despite their importance, however, they are often the most neglected components of the infrastructure. Demands on limited resources, especially competing roadway priorities for increased capacity and improved riding surfaces, too often result in deferred maintenance for bridges. The consequences are obvious — …

Effect of Non-linearities due to Geometry, Cables and Tuned Mass Dampers on the Analysis of Cable-Stayed Bridges by Jaspal Singh Saini

Even though cable-stayed bridges have been built for a long time, simplified procedures have been used for characterization of their dynamic response and design purposes. These procedures were essentially directed towards representation of the overall bridge response, with no consideration to cable vibrations. Researchers have recently stressed the importance of cable vibrations on the overall …

Concrete box-girder bridges / Jörg Schlaich, Hartmut Scheef

A box girder bridge is a bridge in which the main beams comprise girders in the shape of a hollow box. The box girder normally comprises either prestressed concrete, structural steel, or a composite of steel and reinforced concrete. The box is typically rectangular or trapezoidal in cross-section. Box girder bridges are commonly used for …
