Abstract:
A through-girder bridge can be an economical form of construction where clearance under the bridge is limited. Development of prestressed concrete through-girder bridges grew out of extensive experience with prestressed concrete bridges employing simply supported girders. Several representative through-girder bridges built by Japanese National Railways are described.
