Title: A Continuous Composite Steel-Concrete Bridge Prestressed by Deformations at the Interior Supports
Author(s): Carl Berwanger
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 818-873
Keywords: bridges (structrures); composite construction (concrete and steel); concrete slabs; continuity (structural); deformation; girders; jacking; prestressing; research; strain gages; strains; structural analysis; structural steels; temperature
Abstract:This paper presents the analysis of the strains measured during the lowering of the bridge superstructure, when the prestressing of the bridge occurred. The calculated strains were based on the normal assumptions of composite behavior of the steel girder and the reinforced concrete slab.
