PRESTRESSED CONCRETE THROUGH-GIRDER BRIDGES AND HIGH STRENGTH CONCRETE BRIDGES FOR RAILWAYS

Long span bridges and special type ones on the Tokaido Shinkansen which was completed in 1964 were mostly built of steel. But the noise by high-speed trains running on bridges with no ballast in track exceeds 100db (a) near the structures, thereby creating a serious social problem. Thus new bridges to be constructed hereafter were decided to be built of concrete as far as possible. This paper discusses the use of prestressed & high-strength concrete in railway bridges, problems in design and also the mix proportion in high-strength concrete. /TRRL/
