11/11/2014· Partial-depth prestressed precast concrete deck panels span between girders and serve as stay-in-place (SIP) forms for a cast-in-place (CIP) concrete bridge deck. Typical panel geometries are 75–90 mm (3.0–3.5 in.) thick, 2.4 m (8 ft) long in the longitudinal direction of the bridge, and sufficiently wide to span between the girders in the bridge transverse direction.
Employing the method, a 100 m prestressed concrete tower system for a 5 MW turbine was optimized and designed under wind and earthquake loads. The paper also reports a systematic design procedure incorporating the finite element method and the optimization method for the prestressed concrete …

Approval ushered a record length, 159.5 ft. (160 ft. span), for precast/prestressed girders delivered over California roads. Leading up to the WF launch in 2012, typical precast/prestressed-suited bridges called for single California Bulb-Tees through 115 ft., with longer spans using two or three spliced Bulb-Tees.

15/5/2014· Although significant research has been conducted using AE as an evaluation tool of concrete structures, prestressed concrete represents only a very limited portion of that work , . In this study, both amplitude (in dB AE ) and signal strength, the measured area of the rectified AE signal with units proportional to volt seconds (in pVs), are used to establish AE evaluation criteria.

They are generally economical up to 10 feet in height for cast concrete structures. Usually are sufficiently massive to be unreinforced. Monolithic cast walls are generally formed on site.
The great majority of bridges in the United States have spans less than 100 ft (30 m). A large percentage of these bridges are either structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. This paper presents a new precast concrete composite bridge superstructure system called the Inverted Tee System (IT) consisting of inverted tee precast, prestressed concrete beams with a 6.0 in. (150 mm) cast-in
15/12/2015· Assume a cylindrical prestressed shell, design parameters are set to be t = 3.5 ft, R = 70 ft, and a = 32 in. with assumed design pressure of p p = 100 psi. Concerning prestressing load only as an example, it follows that N θ = p p R + 0.5 t = 86.1 kip / in . , and M θ = 0 .

1/9/2010· Precast, prestressed concrete spandrel beams have been widely used in the perimeter of precast concrete frame buildings, especially for parking garages. The spandrels usually support precast, prestressed concrete doubles-tees, which are used as both deck beams and floor diaphragms, and are supported by column corbels at their ends.

Prestressed concrete bridges in the range of 100 to 150 ft. (30 to 46 m) have become common. In most cases the girders for these structures are fabried in lengths to accommodate the spans, and are sometimes spliced over the piers to provide continuity to resist the bending moments caused by live loads and superimposed dead loads.
Further, to support the use of high-strength concrete in prestressed beams, the ia Transportation Research Council conducted a preliminary study. 11 Four prestressed beams, 31 ft (9.4 m) long, were prepared and tested to failure at the Federal Highway Administration’s
The traditional P-wave ultrasonic measurement has been used for the condition assessment of general reinforced concrete structures for a long time, but the effects of prestressing applied to concrete structures such as long-span buildings and bridges on ultrasonic pulse velocity have not been studied clearly. Therefore, this study analyzed the statistical distribution of P-wave ultrasonic
