Concrete Bridge Design and Construction series. No. 3: Prestressing for concrete bridges

This article examines the prestressing for a concrete bridge. Prestressing enhances the capacity of a member that is weak in tension, but strong in compression. It effectively creates a new material that is strong in tension. A prestressed bridge has much less steel to be handled, which reduces congestion, leading to easier and quicker concrete placing.

Concrete Bridge Design and Construction series. No. 9: High performance concretes and new materials

The various high performance concretes that might be used for concrete bridges, to make them either quicker and easier to build, or more economic are discussed. The advantages of high strength, lightweight, fibre reinforced and self-compacting concretes are described, together with the use of new materials that can replace steel for both reinforcement and prestressing.
