Concrete Bridge Design and Construction series. No. 6: Concrete bridge construction methods – in sit

In situ options tend to be used on projects where the speed of construction is not critical, or where the lower costs of the in situ works justify a slightly longer programme.

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.
