Among the various types of bridges designed today, Prestressed Concrete Bridges are undoubtedly the most popular. These bridges present a unique set of challenges and opportunities for any engineer undertaking projects that involve this class of bridges. Box girders, for example, allow for thinner deck sections thereby lowering costs while maintaining structural stability. However, analysis is made complicated by the presence of curved tendons and the need for accurate measurement of tendon losses. Furthermore, time dependent effects like creep, have to be carefully considered to account for erection problems at the site during construction. This session will involve discussions and demonstrations regarding the considerations required for modeling, analysis and design of PSC Box Girder bridges as per Eurocode provisions in midas Civil.
