DESIGN AND PRODUCTION OF PRE-STRESSED CONCRETE GIRDERS

The design and manufacture of the new T-section prestressed concrete bridge girder for Missouri Pacific's standardized trestles is described. The prestressed girder is more economical than previous MP designs. It is produced in standard lengths; increased demand is expected as aging timber trestles used by today's trains must be replaced.
