Transverse Post-tensioning Design and Detailing of Precast, Prestressed Concrete Adjacent Box-girder Bridges

This paper presents a review of the various practices in the transverse design and detailing of adjacent box-girder bridges. The basis for calculating the transverse posttensioning force according to PCI's Precast Prestressed Concrete Bridge Design Manual is discussed. Design charts and equations were developed for various combinations of span length, bridge width, skew angle, and girder depth using the latest loading from AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications.
