About Synopsis

In this webinar, general design objectives and parameters for bridges, and different types of superstructures will be discussed.

Speaker will present different methods for building bridge decks, such as Span-by-Span (cast in situ and segmental precast), Balanced Cantilever Construction (cast in situ and segmental precast), and Fully Precast Bridge Girders & Deck.

Construction methodology and permanent works design interrelate to form the design of a permanent job. Range of applications, equipment used to erect the bridge deck, working kinematics of post tensioning, as well as design considerations for each methodology will also be discussed.

This webinar will include state-of-the-art tensioning technology for improved durability. With bridge design lifespans increasing and owners considering whole-life-cycle costs, durability of post tensioning systems has become a key factor in bridge construction.
