Abstract

This paper describes the development of an improved numerical technique for the prediction of time-dependent effects in prestressed concrete bridges. The purpose of the research project was to enhance the prediction of bridge deflections and strains. This was achieved by the development of an on-site recalibration procedure by which a numerical model describing the development of time-dependent effects can be updated and improved during the construction process. The numerical technique has been developed and tested on prestressed concrete balanced cantilever and integrally constructed portal frame bridges.
