      prestressed bulb-tee bridge girders cast with high-strength concrete. An extensive amount of experimental data was gathered and advanced data analysis tools were utilized to evaluate these nontraditional limitations on shear capacity. It was determined that interface shear transfer resistance in high-strength concrete is. The research conducted in this dissertation is focused on an evaluation of spliced girders using a three dimensional finite element analysis. The project consisted of a series of tests that were conducted in two phases. In Phase I, the effect of post-tensioning ducts on the shear behavior and strength of prestressed concrete girders was : Dhiaa Mustafa T. Al-Tarafany.

        Why Prestressed Concrete Bridge Girders are the Preferred Choice for Long Lasting Bridges Prestressed concrete girders are the leading choice for bridge construction across the country, and it’s easy to understand why.   Prestressed concrete (PC) is the predominant material in highway bridge construction. The use of high-strength concrete has gained wide acceptance in the PC industry. The main target in the highway industry is to increase the durability and the life-span of bridges. Cracking of elements is one aspect which affects durability. Recently, nine meter long PC I-beams made with different Cited by:

G.L. Balázs, T. Kovács, in Innovative Bridge Design Handbook, 1 Types of reinforced concrete bridges. The type of reinforced or prestressed concrete bridge deck depends mainly on the functional requirements, the structural form, and the main span length of the construction. Precast or cast in situ reinforced concrete (r.c.) bridge decks can be practically applied for all structural.

Prestressed concrete is a form of concrete used in construction. It is substantially "prestressed" during production, in a manner that strengthens it against tensile forces which will exist when in service.: 3–5 This compression is produced by the tensioning of high-strength "tendons" located within or adjacent to the concrete and is done to improve the performance of the concrete in service.

when the girders are prestressed and for the volume/surface ratio of the girders. The effects of rein-forcement on creep can usually be ignored for a prestressed beam.

The variation of creep with age at load-ing is given by the curve in Fig. 6(8,10). For loading when the con-crete is one day old, for example, creep would be times the value.

tests that were completed on prestressed concrete I-girders composed of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). Although not structurally optimized to take advantage of the high compressive strength of UHPC, these girders did make use of UHPC’s significant tensile capacity through the elimination of all mild steel reinforcement.

The development of high strength concretes has allowed for the use of longer precast, prestressed concrete bridge girders throughout the United States.

In Georgia, the increased lengths result in girders that often are too heavy to transport across some existing bridges and require a super-load permit if they are to be transported at all. A research program investigated the application of high-early-strength self-consolidating concrete (SCC) for precast, prestressed bridge girders.

The SCC and conventional concrete (CC) in mixtures had a target h release strength of 34 MPa (5, psi). Testing was performed to evaluate the flexural response and bond performance of the girders. Shear capacity of high strength prestressed concrete girders. This report summarizes the results of the shear testing of ten pretensioned girder specimens made from concretes with compressive strengths ranging f psi to 13, psi.

The objective of this research was to develop recommended LRFD procedures, standard details, and design examples for achieving longer spans using precast prestressed concrete bridge girders.
