TRENDS IN PRESTRESSED CONCRETE BRIDGE BUILDING

ENTWICKLUNGSTENDENZEN IM SPANNBETONBRUECKENBAU

The design of multiple span prestressed concrete bridges in the Dresden area is described chronologically (1961-1971) and examples given of completed and projected structures. Principles, elements and technologies which have changed during this period are highlighted and the reasons for the changes are given. Many technical aids such as for example steel scaffolding systems have been tested. As regards production it is suggested that variable building height should not be chosen except for special reasons. Coloration of the concrete and processing are now rarer and natural stone walling is confined to special cases because of the cost. /TRRL/
