Cable stayed bridges constructed by the Cantilever method pose many problems to the designer and the contractor. Creep and shrinkage of concrete, non linearity of stays, construction operations and their sequence, large deformations of structure under construction and service loads, all add to the design complexities of an already complex problem. A computer program, under develepment, is described which can be used to predict time-dependent deformations and stresses during and after construction of these bridges. Simulation of construction is possible for prestressed concrete and composite steel and concrete deck cross sections.
