FULL SCALE TEST OF A PRESTRESSED BRIDGE WITH PRECAST DECK PLANKS

The paper summarizes the results of a comprehensive program in which a full-scale prestressed concrete bridge using stay-in-place precast prestressed deck planks was tested under service and overload conditions. Laboratory tests were made on deck planks and deck assemblies. Conclusions from the test results and design recommendations are given with regard to design assumptions, fabrication, construction and testing of the bridge.
