Title: Analysis and Design of Prestressed Concrete Circular Bow Girders for Bridge Structures
Author(s): Eduardo A.B. Salse
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 714-740
Keywords: bending moments; bow girders; bridges (structures); curved beams; girders; post-tensioning; prestressed concrete; prestressing; prestressing steels; structural analysis; structural design; torsion
Abstract:The problem of prestressing a horizontally curved beam is studied in general. Horizontal and vertical eccentricities are considered in order to control simultaneously, torsional and bending stresses throughout the girder. . .It is pointed out that in such a case not only vertical but also horizontal cable eccentricities are required.
