Horizontally curved concrete I -girder bridges

Wilast Amornrattanapong, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


This research paper summarizes literature review of structural analysis methods for horizontally curved bridges and the current practice of curved prestressed concrete. The paper also documents a study of curved beam theory along with fundamental analyses and designs of prestressed concrete. The study is supplemented by laboratory tests of specimens to investigate the behavior of curved pre-tensioned concrete beam at release. The necessary knowledge for analysis and design including guidelines for fabrication and construction of horizontally curved pre-tensioned concrete I-Girder are provided by the experimental results associated with the literature review of the relevant or similar topic.^
