Additional Physical Format: Online version: Castrodale, Reid W. Extending span ranges of precast prestressed concrete girders. Washington, D.C.: Transportation. Solutions to increase the span range of precast prestressed concrete girders used in the United States and abroad include splicing segments for longer simple or continuous spans, connecting simple spans for continuity, and assembling haunched pier segments in the by: The primary goal of the study was to increase the span range capability of standard prestressed con crete girders, and to improve economy by increasing the allowable girder spacing over previous designs.
Throughout this paper, girders will be described as pretensioned or post tensioned. Members of the Pacific Northwest Precast/ Prestressed Concrete Institute, in cooperation with WSDOT and other affected support industries, developed sections that are deeper and will span further than previously available WSDOT Standards.
Wider spacings and fewer girder lines can also be used for spans in the range of previous WSDOT Standards. precast pre-tensioned girders or planks. Medium- length structures of around 40 to meters ( to ft.), typically use precast- segmental, in-situ balanced-cantilever and incrementally-launched designs.
For the longest bridges, prestressed concrete deck structures often form an integral part of cable-stayed designs. MIDAS CIVIL. n Precast concrete girder camber can vary significantly between the time of prestress release and the time of erection.
n The variations in camber become more significant as the use of high-strength concrete, longer spans, and more heavily prestressed concrete girders continues to increase.

Prestressed Concrete Girders,â was initiated to address these issues by extending the practical use of prestressed concrete girders to longer spans and to applications not normally asso- ciated with precast prestressed concrete girder construction.
The. The use of the technology presented in this report will result in extending the spans achievable by precast prestressed con- crete girder structures, meeting the needs of longer spans that are more frequently being required for safety, aesthetic, envi- ronmental, and economic reasons.
Typical Span Ranges. The following charts provide span ranges (limits) for P/S I-girders based on girder spacing and standard roadway widths. Limitations of the Charts: A. Standard Concrete Charts Only Criteria used in determining maximum span lengths for lower conventional concrete strength.
Precast, prestressed girders are widely used in buildings and bridges; however, one of their main limitations is the length of the span that can be shipped or the capacity of a simple span beam. AASHTO girder standards were established a half century ago.

NCHRP ReportExtending Span Ranges of Precast, Prestressed Concrete Girders, contains the findings of research performed to develop recommended load and resistance factor design procedures for achieving longer spans using precast, prestressed concrete bridge rd details and examples illustrating the design of three typical bridges were also developed.
A properly engineered prestressed-concrete beam can span longer distances than a reinforced-concrete beam and it is thinner, lighter in weight, and uses less concrete without cracking or breaking. Figure 1 - Here is Belgian engineer Gustave Magnel’s drawing that explains prestressing by showing how a row of books, pressed tightly together end.
However, a significant increase in the span range for precast prestressed concrete girder bridges might require the implementation of in-span girder splices. The NCHRP Report summarizes the main strategies adopted for extending the span range of this bridge typology. The concept of spliced girder bridges has a proven track record with some.
A box girder bridge is a bridge in which the main beams comprise girders in the shape of a hollow box. The box girder normally comprises either prestressed concrete, structural steel, or a composite of steel and reinforced concrete. The box is typically rectangular or trapezoidal in cross-section.
Box. used to connect precast concrete members. The single-span bridge superstructure on this experimental project will consist of 15 full-width precast prestressed concrete deck panels composite with four 90 inch deep Bulb-T (ODOT BT90) precast prestressed concrete girders.
Due to the increased bond strength of UHPC, the longitudinal deck. Precast does not combust and provides passive fire protection, as well resistance to earthquakes, storms, and external explosions. Structural Versatility – Precast concrete is a structural system that can span along distances and vary in shapes as needed per project requirements.
Recommendations for the analysis and design of bonded link slabs in precast, prestressed concrete girder applications in the medium-span range are made and illustrated by a numerical example.

SPLICED I-GIRDER CONCRETE BRIDGE SYSTEM. A number of prestressed concrete I-girder bridges built in the past several decades have demonstrated the ability of precast, prestressed spliced girder bridges to compete with structural steel plate girder bridges in the ft span range.
was the best option. The precast, prestressed concrete, post-tensioned spliced girder allowed designers to extend the span range of conventional precast concrete girders to eliminate costly intermediate piers on the steep-sloped ravine and avoid affecting the environmentally sensitive area, while satisfying the owner’s requirement for an all.
The economy of precast prestressed concrete construction is extended to a span range of to feet (30 to m). Longer spans may be economical where use of heavy erection equipment is feasible. Precast segments may be fabricated while the substructure is being built, and rapid erection of the superstructure can be achieved.

The term “super-girder” resulted from the efficient shape of this new bridge girder family, which uses high strength concrete and inch diameter prestress strand to maximize span length and minimize the number of girders. Precast, prestressed concrete girders have been used in bridge construction for over 65 years and have proven to be.
However, the excellent durability and structural performance, low maintenance, and low cost of bridges using precast, prestressed concrete beams have encouraged designers to find ways to use them for even longer spans.

The optimal solution was precast girders launched from the top of the 23 m deep valley. The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) was established to foster greater understanding and use of precast and prestressed concrete products.

Chapter 19 – Prestressed Concrete July Introduction This chapter provides information intended for ressed Iprest -girders. Prestressed box girders and general prestressed concrete guidelines are also included in this chapter.
The definition of prestressed concrete as given by the ACI Committee on Prestressed Concrete is. T The majority of bridges in the U.S. are built with precast, prestressed concrete.
Excellent durability and structural performance over the long term and low cost in the short term have encouraged owners and designers to find methods to extend the span ranges of typical girder shapes and to develop new shapes to satisfy more applications.
Concurrently, the enhanced durability properties facilitate a lengthening of design life and allow for potential use as thin overlays, claddings, or shells. In the United States, UHPC has been used in prestressed concrete girder simple-span bridges, precast concrete deck panels, and field-cast connections between prefabricated bridge components.
Development of high performance concrete has increased the span length of given size precast prestressed girders up to 40 percent.
While the designer’s main concerns were the safety and stability of the bridge once construction was completed, attention should also be given to the temporary stresses and stability of these precast girders. elements installed before the concrete slab is cast = for steel girders, for precast prestressed concrete girders, for concrete box girders and T-beams, for concrete flat slabs B.
