SOME CONSIDERATIONS ON THE PLANNING OF ENGINEERING STRUCTURES IN RELATION TO THE VARIOUS PHASES OF CONSTRUCTION AND TO THE STRUCTURE WHEN IN SERVICE

QUALCHE CONSIDERAZIONE SULLA PROGETTAZIONE DI OPEREDI INGEGNERIA CIVILE IN RAPPORTO ALLE VARIE FASI DI ESECUZIONE E A QUELLA FINALE DI ESERCIZIO

In addition to its operational function, the planning of a civil engineering structure is determined by the technical means used for its construction. This gives rise to a preference for certain constructional solutions in relation to particular economic conditions. The prevalence of cantilever over arch bridges, due to the prohibitive cost of centering and scaffolding, is cited as an example, and the planning of constructional stages is discussed with a view to minimising the effects of secondary stresses and delayed deformation in cantilever structures. /TRRL/
