    The sixth edition of this comprehensive monograph on Prestressed Concrete is updated to meet the basic requirements of undergraduate and postgraduate students of Civil, Structural and Highway Engineering streams and practising structural engineers. The book incorporates the latest specifcations of the revised Indian, British and American codes, with emphasis on the limit state concepts. Prestressed concrete has experienced greatest growth in the field of commercial buildings. For buildings such as shopping centers, prestressed concrete is an ideal choice because it provides the span length necessary for flexibility and alteration of the internal structure.

      Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete is the most comprehensive, up-to-the-minute text for students and instructors in civil and structural engineering, and for practising engineers requiring a full grasp of the latest Australian Concrete Structures Standard, AS Topics are presented in detail, covering the theoretical and practical aspects of analysis and design, with an emphasis on. Traditionally, prestressed concrete girder bridges are limited to ft span lengths in Texas due to restrictions on handling and transportation. An effective way of increasing span lengths of precast, prestressed concrete girder bridges is demonstrated using splicing technique. In spliced girder bridges, precast girder segments are.

    TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report Evaluation and Repair Procedures for Precast/Prestressed Concrete Girders with Longitudinal Cracking in the Web explores the acceptance, repair, or rejection of precast/prestressed concrete girders .   PRESTRESSED CONCRETE Prestressed concrete, invented by Eugene Frevssinet in is a method for overcoming concrete’’s natural weakness in tension. It can be used to produce beams, floors or bridges with a longer span than is practical with ordinary reinforced concrete. It can be accomplished in three ways: pre- tensioned concrete, and.

This report investigates the feasibility of removing end blocks from the Washington State series 10 and 14 simply supported prestressed girders.

These girders are characterized by their 5" webs and are pretensioned using both harped and straight 1/2" grade 27 strands. A series 14 girder, 48 ft. long, is manufactured without end blocks and destructively tested. tion of end blocks for simple span bridges.

A controlled laboratory test on two ft-long Series 14 girders is performed. The girders are without end blocks and continuous throughout the deck.

Their joint details are similar to those normally used in the field. At the continuous end, strains induced in the stirrups are monitored dur­. TEST OF CONTINUOUS PRESTRESSED CONCRETE GIRDERS Prestressed concrete girders without end blocks book END BLOCKS.

This study investigates the feasibility of eliminating end blocks from pretensioned continuous bridge girders. The removal of end blocks is estimated to reduce girder cost by 5 to 10%. DESIGN OF PRESTRESSED CONCRETE GIRDERS WITHOUT END BLOCKS.

FINAL REPORT. This report investigates the feasibility of removing end blocks from the Washington State series 10 and 14 simply supported prestressed girders. These girders are characterized by their 5" webs and are pretensioned using both harped and straight 1/2" grade 27 strands.

This document consists of a comprehensive design example of a prestressed concrete girder bridge. The superstructure consists of two simple spans made continuous for live loads.

The substructure consists of integral end abutments and a multi-column intermediate bent. The document also includes instructional commentary based on the AASHTO-LRFD.

In this paper, a precast concrete truss is proposed as an alternative to steel trusses for spans up to 48 m ( ft) without intermediate supports. The proposed design is easy to produce and has lower construction and maintenance costs than steel by: 1.

The type of reinforced or prestressed concrete bridge deck depends mainly on the functional requirements, the structural form, and the main span length of the construction. Precast or cast in situ reinforced concrete (r.c.) bridge decks can be practically applied for all structural types, like arch, cable-stayed, extradosed, and even suspension bridges with a majority of girder bridges.

of end blocks does not ensure the absence of horizontal cracking at 58 the ends of pretensioned prestressed concrete girders.

In addition, end blocks cannot restrict the growth of a horizontal end crack once crack­ ing has occurred, and they also add appreciably to the formwork costs for a prestressed girder.

It therefore. Based on 23 shear tests on prestressed concrete SFRC girders without shear reinforcement, it can be concluded that steel fibres can increase the shear strength of 20 m span full-scale girders.

The Prestressed Concrete Beam Design Program is written in FORTRAN IV language for IBM /50 and /65 computers. The program is comprised of one main calling routine, twenty-three subroutines, and one Block Data set.

Compile time for a FORTRAN version of the program is approximately three minutes and the required storage is. Prestressed concrete decks are commonly used for bridges with spans between 25m and m and provide economic, durable and aesthetic solutions in most situations where bridges are needed.

Concrete remains the most common material for bridge construction around the world, and prestressed concrete is frequently the material of choice.

A new and extensive Chapter 12 was added using the latest LRFD and Standard AASHTO specifications for the design of prestressed bridge deck girders for flexure, shear, torsion and serviceability, including the design of end-anchorage blocks/5(15). The Wotton Bridge (Fig.

), in the municipality of Wotton, Québec, is a single-span prestressed concrete girder bridge with a total length of metres and a width of metres. The deck slab rests on four prestressed concrete girders, spaced at metres, with a cantilever slab of 1 metre on either side.

The deck slab is reinforced. Long Service life - Precast concrete is a very durable material that can provide a service life of years. Precast is manufactured in a controlled environment with a high-degree of quality control and low water-cementitious ratios.

This results in high compressive strength concrete with low permeability and provides for long-term durability. REPAIR OF DAMAGED PRESTRESSED CONCRETE GIRDER AASHTO Midwest Bridge Preservation Conference, Detroit, MI Presented by: damaged pre-stressed concrete girders are replaced.

Prestressed Concrete Applications. Prestressed concrete is adaptable to a wide variety of structural systems. These include pretensioned and post-tensioned structures, both cast-in-place and precast, and other prestressed elements in conjunction with normally reinforced concrete.A properly engineered prestressed-concrete beam can span longer distances than a reinforced-concrete beam and it is thinner, lighter in weight, and uses less concrete without cracking or breaking.
