RECENT DEVELOPMENT OF CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES IN CONCRETE BRIDGES

It is intended to report about various construction methods developed for concrete bridges. They can be briefly listed as follows: (1) Free Cantilevers, (2) Segmental on Sliding Form, (3) Spanwise Segmental, (4) Incremental Launching, (5) Stage Casting, (6) Cantilever on Falsework, (7) Cable-Stayed Cantilever, (8) Segmental with Gantry or Truss. Most of these methods have been employed in the United States for the first time within the last 5 years. Some are under construction right now. Depending on site conditions and requirements, combinations of these methods can be used. This paper will discuss the advantages as well as the design problems of these methods. /Author/
