Geometry lesson

Several bridge projects in Asia are making use of a new software package which can be used to manage production of precast segments, as detailed in this article. Usually precast segments for segmental bridges are match-cast against each other using either the long-line or short-line method; however this is not always straight-forward, and the new software aims to address the shortcomings. Once a geometric model of a bridge girder is created, a transfer file can be created containing all data necessary for use in the casting yard. The software has been used on the F11 Hunter Expressway in New South Wales, Australia; the Casablanca section of the Kampung Melayu-Tanah Abang Viaduct in Jakarta, Indonesia; and the Tuas West Extension in Singapore.
