CONSTRUCTION OF LARGE-SPAN PRESTRESSED CONCRETE BRIDGES, WITH HOMOGENEOUS TIE RODS

CONSTRUCCION DE PUENTES DE HORMIGON PRETENSADO, DE GRAN LUZ, CON TIRANTES HOMOGENEIZADOS

A method is described for the construction of large spans by means of one or more independent structures, consisting of two long cantilevers which start from the same vertical element and are supported at the end by means of inclined tie rods, which are in turn linked at their ends by a support which rises vertically from the pier. Some structures constructed by this method are described, and the principal construction problems of these structures are presented. /TRRL/
