External prestressing--that is, the use of unbonded prestressing tendons outside the concrete section of a structural concrete member--offers substantial economic savings and a dramatic increase in construction speed, making it an extremely attractive option for the construction of new concrete structures, particularly bridges. It is also a logical choice for the rehabilitation and strengthening of many existing structures. ACI's symposium volume, External prestressing in Bridges, provides the last word on this important technological development Based on experience in both the U.S. and Europe, the book addresses:

-The state of the art,

-Technologies for construction,

-Applications in new construction and rehabilitation,

-Testing and experimental observations,

-Analysis and design considerations.

Covering practical construction information as well as analysis and design, this is required reading for anyone involved in building bridges.
