Precast concrete splicedgirder bridge in Washington State

High Performance Precast, Pretensioned Concrete Girder

Precast bridges consisting of pretensioned girders, posttensioned spliced girders, trapezoidal open box girders, and other types of superstructure members are often used for accelerated bridge construction; however, bridge engineers are concerned with the

Effects of Temperature Variations on Precast, Prestressed

To collect data on the behavior of a typical precast girder bridge, a new three-span [email protected] 1~a!# was instrumented during fab-rication and monitored for 3 years ~Barr et al. 2000a!. This bridge, which carries Washington State Route 18 over State Route 516 ~SR18/SR516 bridge!, has span lengths of 24.4, 41.7, and 24.4 m ~80, 137, and 80 ft!.

PROJECT Chief Joseph Dam Bridge

single-span precast concrete spliced-girder bridge in Washington state at the time of construction. Background Chief Joseph was a prominent Nez Perce Native American leader. The dam was named in honor of him, and the bridge was subsequently named after the dam. Before it was replaced, the existing 309-ft-long bridge consisted of a unique

RMCalc - Restraint moments in precast prestressed concrete

Precast prestressed concrete girders have a tendency to creep upwards over time due to the prestressing force and other effects. If a girder''s ends are restrained by a pier or diaphragm, forces will build up in the girder due to the creep. Typically, the ultimate restraint moment in a girder is a positive moment.
