Title: Ultimate behaviour of externally prestressed concrete bridges
Author(s): Ramos Schneider, G.; Aparicio Bengoechea, A.C.
Appears on pages(s): 37 - 44
Abstract:In this article a model for the study of the ultimate behaviour of externally prestressed concrete bridges is presented . A finite element program has been developed, including reinforced beam elements, external unbonded prestressing elements and segmental joints elements. The analysis includes mechanical and geometric non linearity. A comparision between the numerical model and some tested beams is also shown.
