Title: Precast Concrete in Highway Bridge Construction

Publication: Journal Proceedings

Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Precasting of reinforced concrete highway bridges has developed in some areas of the United States to a point where it has been demonstrated quite conclusively that the method has dehnite advantages in many instances over conventional cast-in-place construction and structural steel. Systems which have been used in the past and those which are in use today are described. References to specific jobs show the possibilities of precast bridge construction especially as applied to short span highway structures. Attention is called to the need for standardization so that bridge members of precast concrete can be manufactured in factories on a commercial basis if maximum economy is to be obtained.
