The development of external prestressing in Australia

Today, many prestressed concrete bridges and viaducts have been constructed throughout the world using external prestressing tendons. This paper discusses the development and use of external prestressing tendons overseas and within Australia, culminating in the largest single use of this civil engineering system in this country, the new viaduct of the Western Link as part of the Melbourne City Link Project.
