Description

Concrete remains the most common material for bridge construction around the world, and prestressed concrete is frequently the material of choice. Extensively illustrated throughout, this invaluable book brings together all aspects of designing prestressed concrete bridge decks into one comprehensive volume. Commonly used for bridges with spans between 25m and 450m, prestressed concrete bridges provide economic, durable and aesthetic solutions in most situations. This book clearly explains the principles behind the design and construction of prestressed concrete bridges and illustrates the interaction between the two. All the different types of deck arrangement and the construction techniques used are covered. The design aspects, along with the general analysis and design process, of the different types of deck are included with examples. Detailed descriptions of the prestressing components and systems used are also given. The second edition has been updated for the move to Eurocodes and the content expanded in areas, such as: the inspection, maintenance and demolition of prestressed concrete bridges; integral bridges; temporary works and construction requirements.
