THE SEGMENT METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION WITH GLUED AND PRESTRESSED JOINTS IN AUSTRIAN BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION

DIE SEGMENTBAUWEISE MIT GEKLEBTEN UND VORGESPANNTEN FUGEN IM OESTERREICHISCHEN BRUECKENBAU

The advantage of the segment method of construction lies in the industrialised prefabrication of the segments, whereby high quality precast units may be obtained. In addition, the erection methods make it possible to construct bridges more quickly and therefore more cheaply. This method was used for the first time in Austria by the construction company - A. Porr, A.G., for the construction of a bridge over a motorway and was linked to a research project. The aim of this project for the Federal Ministry for Building and Technology, was to confirm the suitability of the segmental method of construction which has already been demonstrated abroad. /TRRL/
