SEGMENTAL CONSTRUCTION - PREFABRICATED STRUCTURES WITH GLUED AND PRESTRESSED JOINTS

SEGMENTBAUWEISE--IN ABSCHNITTEM VORGEFERTIGTE TRAGWERKE MIT GEKLEBTEN, VORGESCPANNTEN STOESSEN

The aim of the work was to confirm the suitability and efficiency for Austrian conditions of segmental construction which has already proved successful abroad (especially in Latin countries). It included attempts to resolve outstanding questions by means of theoretical and experimental investigations, to provide for the inclusion of design rules and construction specifications in the relevant regulations or standards and thus to permit their use for future long-span bridges in Austria. The investigations associated with the research project could be classified under four main headings: (1) tests on epoxy resins and release agents, (2) tests with full scale segments, (3) design of bridge of 44 M span with a structural depth of 2,10 M, (4) construction and erection of the bridge structure. /TRRL/
