This article examines the selection process for the most suitable type of concrete bridge. The general parameters of the scheme such as typical spans, overall deck area, clearance requirements, alignment and the overall aesthetic will start to suggest which type of bridge deck and construction methods might be appropriate.
This article examines the various methods for the design and construction of concrete arches, frames, tunnels and jacked boxes, which cover the whole range of bridges from the smallest culverts to the largest concrete spans in the world.
This month’s article from the CBDG’s Technical Committee examines the construction methods for the six basic types of precast concrete bridge: • Standard precast inverted T/Y, I or U beams • Bespoke precast T, I or U beams • Precast segmental box girders with short segments • Whole span precast box girders • Incrementally launched box girders • Modular precast system with short shell segments
