DESIGN OF HOLLOW SKEW DECK SPANS AS APPLIED TO KILMORE AND MADRAS STREET BRIDGES

This paper describes the reasons for constructing the Madras Street and Kilmore Street bridges in close proximity across the Avon River in Christchurch, New Zealand, and the design difficulties imposed by this situation. The analysis of the prestressed concrete skewed deck systems is discussed. A subsequent study has been made of associated creep behavior and methods of computer analysis. /IRRD/
