ELEVATED STRUCTURE FOR ATLANTA TRANSIT SYSTEM:

BASIC DESIGN FEATURES AND THE ALTERNATIVES

A standardized elevated structure for above-ground segments of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit system was designed primarily for installation with adequate clearance on railroad rights-of-way and also as a low-profile aerial guideway which would be aesthetically suitable in residential neighborhoods. The concept involves a prestressed concrete deck slab acting compositely with single box girders supported on rectangular concrete columns. Various sound-deadening arrangements have been part of the structural design.
