ANNUAL END MOVEMENTS OF PRESTRESSED CONCRETE BRIDGES

A 2-year field study obtained end-movement data on 99 prestressed concrete bridges throughout New York State. End movements recorded by scratch gages were correlated with ambient temperature information obtained from National Climatic Center records. Although the temperature information indicated that annual temperature ranges were greater than design values, the experimental average annual end-movement per unit length was not significantly different from the present design values. /FHWA/
