PRESTRESSING OF STEEL STRUCTURES

In addition to the roof structures of a large stadium and a television studio, this article describes the erection over the Olifants River in South Africa, of a continuous steel girder railway bridge which required the post tensioning of the concrete deck over the whole length of the bridge, with concentrated post tensioning over the piers. Also described is a steel road bridge over the Nagagane river, where the precast concrete deck slabs were post tensioned and then connected to the steel girders to form a continuous structure. /TRRL/
