Lateral Forces Due to Longitudinal Prestressing of Concrete Box Spine-Beam Bridges with Inclined Webs

Box spine-beam bridges in prestressed concrete have become a widely used form of construction for spans in the range 20 m to 150 m. However, if inclined webs are adopted with prestressing tendon profiles parallel to those webs, the effects of longitudinal prestressing can give rise to significant transverse forces in the top and bottom slabs.
