Shanafelt and Horn (1980) reported that approximately 160 PC bridge overheight impacts were reported each year by transportation departments in the United States. In the radar data, Fig. 5.6(a), the reinforcement bars at the surface can be detected very clearly whereas the reflection from an underneath tendon duct at a depth of approximately 25 to 30 cm appears only with low signal/noise ratio. Di Ludovico et al. This allows for casting the span directionally from pier to pier, but the forms must be designed for full hydrostatic loads. Determine the existing shear capacity of the beam under existing loading conditions. The permanent loads on the structure are the dominant ones. 1. The Gröndals Bridge is a large freivorbau bridge (prestressed concrete box girder), approximately 400 m in length with a free span of 120 m. It was opened to tram traffic in 2000. HOLLAWAY, in Strengthening and Rehabilitation of Civil Infrastructures Using Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites, 2008. Observing the … Some MSSs are equipped with self-repositioning pier brackets that avoid the use of ground cranes. Keywords: Prestressed concrete girder, post tensioning, moving load analysis, tendons, tendon profile. girders largely depend on the selected cross section. An overhead MSS with active prestressing (BERD). The main pier (Figure 17.14a) consists of the following: Figure 17.14. It provides an economic solution with pretensioned beams for spans up to 30 m and up to 50 m in the case of posttensioning. Precast prestressed concrete integral deck bridges can minimize traffic interruption because of the availability of long span, plant-produced sections and the speed of erecting a bridge. From this image, the position of the tendon ducts in lateral and depth co-ordinates could be determined. Table 6.25. The rear support of the MSS is placed on the front cantilever of the completed bridge to minimize the design span of the MSS and the time-dependent stress redistribution within the bridge. Prestressing on Different Layers of Tendons in Super T-Beam. Figure 9.5. A temporary pier at the leading span quarter supports MSS and the midspan segment prior to casting the next pier segment. It is calculated as the mean of depths from 16.3 cm to 35 cm, being the depth region of the first tendon duct layer. The machine projects far beneath the bridge, which may cause clearance issues when overpassing active infrastructures and difficulties at the end spans of the bridge. Two-phase casting involves casting bottom slabs, webs, and pier diaphragms first, and the top slab after 2–3 days. The front support of the MSS may be a portal frame integral with the main girder or a tower-cross-beam assembly anchored to the pier cap and equipped with launch rollers. Mohiuddin Ali Khan Ph.D., M.Phil., DIC, P.E., in Accelerated Bridge Construction, 2015. Since dn, c = 481.2 mm > tflange, the critical point for web-shear cracking to occur is the centroidal axis. New-generation single-girder overhead MSS are targeting 90-m spans in rectilinear highway bridges and 70-m spans in heavier dual-rack railway box girders. Precast / Prestressed Concrete is the material of choice for bridge and commercial structures. (1996) developed another set of guidelines for classifying impact damage. A hollow shaft square 6.5 m, with a wall thickness of 1.0 m, 16 drilled piles Ø 2 m, with a length of about 40 m. The pier table is heavily prestressed (Figure 17.14b). Analysis and design of prestressed concrete box girder bridge The effective prestressing force in each strand considering all losses equals 133.1 kN per strand. The most usual one is an I-shaped section, placed at 0.6 m to about 4.0 m apart with a cast in situ concrete slab. Two-phase casting restricts the quantity of concrete processed daily and facilitates the handling of inner forms. Length: customized up to 30m, subject to transport limitation Designed to BS 5400: Part 4: Code of PGSuper is a computer program for the design, analysis, and load rating of precast, prestressed concrete girder bridges. This sequence is labor intensive and the use of retarding admixtures is often preferred to keep the concrete fluid for the entire duration of filling. Strands are inserted into the ducts during span curing. Effective stress in FRP, ffe = ɛfeEf = 0.00171 × 165, 000 = 282.7 MPa. decks of constant depth, the span/depth ratio is normally within the range of 14–30. A 150-mm thick topping slab was cast over the top flange of … R. Saul, K. Humpf, in Innovative Bridge Design Handbook, 2016. Voids are produced by excluding the concrete by appropriate materials (such as cardboard or expanded polystyrene) and are located near mid-depth, causing minimum inertia reduction. Table 6.24. Prestressing increases cost and complexity of the MSS, and the axial load makes the truss more prone to out-of-plane buckling. , in Advanced Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites for Structural Applications, 2013. Solid, voided, and ribbed slabs are cast in one phase, while box girders may be cast in one or two phases. Solid or voided slabs are used for 30–40-m highway spans, ribbed slabs with double-T sections are used up to 50-m spans, and box girders can reach up to 70-m spans. Inline casting of 90–120-m, varying-depth spans is faster than balanced cantilever construction, with a cycle time of 2–4 weeks per span. The cross section consists of the following: Figure 17.13. another problem with internal splices and external post-tensioning is that it is possible for a piece of the patch to dislodge, causing damage to passing vehicles. L.C. The carrier may be equipped with concrete distribution arms and a covering to protect the casting cell during concrete pouring. Ultrasonic measurements were conducted by BAM (Krause et al., 2008a) as part of a comprehensive NDT effort also including magnetic reinforcement bar localization and radar examinations. It is substantially "prestressed" (compressed) during production, in a manner that strengthens it against tensile forces which will exist when in service. (2010) experimentally tested five full-scale, PC I-sectioned girders with a reinforced concrete slab; their length and height were 13,000 mm and 1,050 mm respectively. Hejll and Norling (2002) have shown that the bridge strengthening can be undertaken without bridge closure; work proceeded on this structure with the bridge open to traffic. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Table 6.28. The main girder comprises two braced trusses or I-girders. bridge decks can be practically applied for all structural types, like arch, cable-stayed, extradosed, and even suspension bridges with a majority of girder bridges. The shear strength provided by the shear reinforcement (VS) is given by ACI Committee 318 (2014): Use two legs of N12 bars at 500 mm spacing for stirrups. Existing Loads for Super T-Beam. The above extant studies do not address the more recent rehabilitation methods, namely the application of composite materials which use CFRP and prestressed CFRP composites, which could be used to repair impact and corrosion damaged PC girders; the experimental data on full-scale PC girders strengthened by using FRP laminates are very limited. The box is typically rectangular or trapezoidal in cross-section. According to ACI 440.2 (2017), a reasonable strengthening limit is determined to protect the structure against collapse when the FRP is damaged: Hence, the strengthened member will have sufficient structural capacity in the event of FRP damage until the FRP can be repaired. The main reasons for the cracking were (i) slender webs, (ii) the cross-sections were under-reinforced. The shear contribution of the concrete controlling flexure-shear cracking is given by ACI Committee 318 (2014): where Mcre is the moment to cause flexural cracking at the section due to the externally applied loads: The compressive stress due to the prestressing force at the extreme section at which cracking would occur (fpe) is given by: Prestressing force per strand, P′ = 133.1 kN. Shanafelt and Horn (1980) also detailed information concerning damage evaluation and repair methods for PC bridges. Neutral axis of the gross section, without reinforcement: Calculate the moment necessary to cause flexural cracking Mcre: Calculate the factored shear force Vi and maximum factored moment Mmax at the section due to externally applied loads, such as superimposed dead load and live load. Minimum Requirements The minimum span to depth ratio for a simple span precast prestressed concrete I-girder bridge is 0.045 resulting in a minimum depth of (0.045)(110.75) = 4.98 feet. The prestressed concrete bridge girder shown in Fig. A second depth cut in the range from 44 to 70 cm (not shown) imaged two vertical ducts in a second layer. This study was intended as an extension of a previous experimental work conducted by Di Ludovico et al. 1).' The savings of labor are substantial, and the area under the bridge is unaffected. M. Schickert, M. Krause, in Non-Destructive Evaluation of Reinforced Concrete Structures: Non-Destructive Testing Methods, 2010. Reed and Peterman (2004) showed that both flexural and shear capacities of a 30-year-old damaged prestressed concrete girder could be substantially increased with externally bonded CFRP composite sheets. Shear strength of the shear reinforcement: Vs = 286.0 kN (from Section 6.2). The effective strain in the FRP material is controlled by the failure mode of the FRP reinforcement and the strengthened reinforced concrete section. In a single-girder overhead MSS, the outer form is suspended from a central girder that is supported at the leading pier of the span to cast and on the front cantilever of the completed bridge (Figure 27.7). It is necessary to determine the prestressing force in each layer and their respective eccentricities are summarized in Table 6.26. It became clear that version two of the plans was realized. Considering the new loading conditions, design the spacing of the FRP shear reinforcement using the following FRP properties: bf = 100 mm, tf = 1.2 mm, Ef = 165,000 MPa, and ɛfu = 0.017. However, span-by-span casting with weekly casting cycles is much faster than balanced cantilever construction, design of reinforcement and prestressing is more efficient, and the operators of bridge erection machines must be accurately trained anyway. The shear contribution required using FRP systems is given by: For the Super T-beam, the FRP sheets are assumed to be bonded on the two outer faces of the webs (two-sided bonded). The existing loads are summarized in Table 6.25. Form brackets overhanging from the main girder suspend form hangers with telescopic connections for the setting of camber and cross-fall. The traffic traversing the bridge did not seem to influence the crack movement, which were of the order of one tenth of the daily thermal movement. The FRP contribution to shear strength is given by: The tensile stress at the FRP reinforcement is given by ffe = ɛfeEf. Main pier: (a) Layout, (b) prestressing of the pier table, (c) turning circle. Therefore, the shear contribution of the concrete controlling flexure-shear cracking is given by: Also, Vci should not be less than 0.17λfc'bwd according to ACI Committee 318 (2014): The shear contribution of the concrete to shear capacity under flexure-shear cracking is given by ACI Committee 318 (2014): Calculate the compressive stresses on the composite section due to both prestress and moments resisted by the Super T-beam alone fpe. The cables are tensioned during the filling of the casting cell and released during application of span prestress. In less-automated machines, the web cage is fabricated over the new span during curing, is suspended from the MSS during launch, and is lowered into the casting cell after fabrication of the bottom slab grid. This value may be about 30 to 35 for continuous prestressed concrete structures. Data fusion results of ultrasonic and radar: (a) without velocity correction, (b) with velocity correction. This type of cross section can be economic up to 25 m (with constant depth) or up to 35 m (with variable depth). A span/depth ratio of 25 is possible for continuous bridge decks. Strengthening in the former limit state was undertaken by prestressed DYWIDAG stays and in the latter by utilising CFRP laminates. It has to be considered that before data fusion the calibration of the velocity in each data set might be different depending on the on-site condition. Since Vu = 962.7 kN > ϕVn = 792.6 kN, the section is not adequate for the new loading conditions. Shear (Vu) at critical section ‘d’ from the side facing the support: The shear strength of the unstrengthened member, ϕVn = 792.6 kN. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. Based on these observations and on the simple theory presented in the appendix, tools are developed to gauge the effects of temperature variations. In the following, data recorded at the cross beam inside the box girder of the bridge are analysed. This sequence is preferred when the MSS is supported on pier brackets. W-frames on through girders are assembled and dismantled with ground cranes. Hejll and Norling (2002), Täljsten and Hejll (2004) and James (2004) have discussed the results of monitoring of the bridge, up to March 2004. The fused radar data set and the ultrasonic data were fused by adding the amplitudes of each volume cell. The measurements were conducted on a planar grid using an automated scanning system. The prestressed concrete bridge girder shown in Fig. 142-150 Google Scholar The geometrical layout of the bridge structural elements, as obtained by the original drawings is represented in Figures 1, 2, 3, and 4, where the plan view of the deck, the lateral views of the overall bridge structure, piers and abutments, and the cross section of the prestressed concrete girder bridge are shown.. Cross-frames or cross-beams provide transverse rigidity and distribute torsion. A central full-length splice divides the outer form into two halves. Compressive stress due to prestressing force: Calculate the stress due to the unfactored dead load, at the bottommost concrete fiber where the tensile stress is induced due to loads applied externally fd: Distance from the neutral axis of the gross section to the bottommost fiber y'. The bridge was strengthened at several sections in both the ultimate limit state and in the service limit state but in different sections of the bridge. The first prestressed concrete bridges First in the US: Walnut Lane Bridge, Philadelphia, 1950 Philadelphia’s Walnut Lane Bridge, completed in late 1950, is considered the first major prestressed-concrete bridge in the U.S. Gustave Magnel, a Belgian engineer, and Charles Zollman, Magnel’s student, designed the bridge. The main girders of an underslung MSS support the bottom cross-beams of the casting cell with adjustable saddles for setting of camber and cross-fall (Figure 27.6). In this thesis analysis and design of prestressed concrete bridges (Deck Slab, T-Girder and Box Girder) are carried out using IRC:112-2011. The reason for strengthening the service limit state was to inhibit existing cracks and prevent new ones from developing. From the radar as well as from the ultrasonic data set, in Fig.5.6 similar B-scans are presented. G.L. The rebar cage may be prefabricated behind the abutment and delivered on the completed bridge to achieve weekly casting cycles and mitigate risks with parallel tasks. This sequence is preferred when the MSS is supported on distant cross-beams or W-frames at the leading pier. Weiwei Lin, Teruhiko Yoda, in Bridge Engineering, 2017. The shear force due to dead loads Vd and due to other loads, such as superimposed dead load and live load Vi, are separated, and Vi is determined from factored loads (superimposed dead and live loads). Balázs, ... T. Kovács, in Innovative Bridge Design Handbook, 2016. The type of reinforced or prestressed concrete bridge deck depends mainly on the functional requirements, the structural form, and the main span length of the construction. CFRP composites have been adopted in several practical cases, for instance (i) the Highway appia near Rome, (ii) Bridge a10062, St Louis County, Missouri, and (iii) Bridge A5657, south of Dixon, Missouri. The main bridge was built by incremental launching, with a unit length of 15.63 m corresponding to 1/3 of the regular span. PC/CFRP repairs are potential alternatives to conventional external post-tensioned steel repairs, but are somewhat cumbersome to apply in the field. Strengthening design according to ACI 440.2 (2017). In either case, the construction joint is cast at the end of filling to prevent settling. 6.9 spans 21.6 m and supports a superimposed dead load G of 6 kN/m and a live load Q of 20 kN/m (excluding self-weight). The prestressed concrete bridge across the Shatt-Al-Arab (Seifried and Wittfoth, 1979) consists of the following (Figure 17.12): The western section, with a total length of 331.75 m, The eastern section, with a total length of 430.15 m. A viaduct linking the main bridge to Sindibad Island. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. HollawayL.C. Precast, prestressed concrete /-girders are more economical than other bridge systems, if the span length allows them to be used in full span segments, i.e., for spans up to about 150ft (46 m). The longest span that can be constructed with a box girder cross section is about 300 m. The main benefit of these structures is significant torsional rigidity. Nanni (1997), Nanni et al. A 150-mm thick topping slab was cast over the top flange of the beams after full stressing. Twenty prototype repair designs were presented using five variants of CFRP-based repair systems. Swing bridge: (a) Layout, (b) prestressing. Located about 3km east of the Toyota-higashi junction on the Shin-tomei Expressway, the 740m-long Gunkaigawa Bridge comprises two separate inbound and outbound bridges that are continuous seven-span prestressed reinforced concrete rigid-frame box girders with an effective width of 14.75m and a maximum span … Voided slabs with rectangular cross sections or with side cantilevers are used for spans longer than about 20 m in order to reduce the self-weight (Figure 9.2). The construction requires relatively complicated formwork and special construction techniques. An open casting cell for a ribbed slab with a double-T section (Strukturas). Riadh Al-Mahaidi, Robin Kalfat, in Rehabilitation of Concrete Structures with Fiber-Reinforced Polymer, 2018. The box girder normally comprises prestressed concrete, structural steel, or a composite of steel and reinforced concrete. Alumina and iron oxide are the other basic ingredients in the manufacture of cement. This is due to the fact that this type structure has proven itself to be durable, economical and low-maintenance. Determine some of the section properties of the prestressed beam without the topping slab, as given in Table 6.23. For simply supported spans with constant depth, the typical span/depth ratio is between 22 and 25. It should not be ignored or omitted in a discussion regarding treatment of girders with initial imperfections such as sweep because these imperfections are multiplied by the effects of girder instability. Silica is available in the form of aggregates. The span/depth ratio at the piers in this case can be between 15 and 22, and the span/depth ratio at mid-span will be in the range of 35 to 22 for decks simply supported on the piers, and between 40 to 45 for decks embedded in the heads of piers. 6.9 spans 21.6 m and supports a superimposed dead load G of 6 kN/m and a live load Q of 20 kN/m (excluding self-weight). (2001) and Parretti et al. Lateral bracing and connections designed for fast site assembly and to minimize displacement-induced fatigue provide sufficient flexural stiffness to resist vibration stresses. The unified concrete code (IRC:112) published by the Indian Road Congress in November Longer-lasting concrete that can be used in most bridge construction is now available for the foundation, substructure, and superstructure. After completion, a three-dimensional SAFT reconstruction of the measurement data was calculated and evaluated in two-dimensional sections through the volume data. An assessment by the engineer has indicated that shear strengthening of the girder using FRP is required in order accommodate the new loading. The pier brackets include vertical hydraulic cylinders that lift the MSS to the span-casting elevation and lower it back onto the launch saddles to release the span in one operation. The effective depth d is also the distance from the top concrete compression fiber to the center of prestressing reinforcement dp. Figure 27.8. For spans that exceed 60 m, it is structurally and economically favorable to apply longitudinally varied depths. The cage includes a front bulkhead, prestressing hardware, and embedded items. Based on the National Bridge Inventory, Dunker and Rabbat showed the change in percentage of the eight most common prestressed concrete bridge types built in the Uruted States during the period 1950 to 1989 (see Fig. A design example followed by a load rating analysis illustrates the engineering computations performed by PGSuper. Cross-sectional area of the Super T-beam: Some of the section properties after the slab hardens are given in Table 6.24. For r.c. Mile-Long Bridge Featured by National Precast Concrete Association Illinois’ Mile-Long Bridge, Chicago, IL, is undergoing significant reconstruction. In Fig. 5.7, the B-scans of the fused data sets are shown before, Fig. 5.7(a), and after, Fig. 5.7(b), this correction of depth scale demonstrating an enhancement in spatial resolution. For the launching, continuity tendons were introduced at both bridge ends, which were cut after the bridge had reached its final position. The ultrasonic data were recorded with a transducer array at 50 kHz (ACSYS) and were reconstructed by means of 3D SAFT. The calculations of unstrengthened shear capacity according to ACI Committee 318 (2014) will be used in conjunction with the shear-strengthening design using ACI 440.2 (2017). A cast-in-situ beam and slab system is a development of the ribbed slab that is used for longer spans (Figure 9.4). procedures for a three-span prestressed concrete girder bridge. 22.14. The second method involves post-tensioning with external tendons. In the second procedure, concrete is poured starting at the front bulkhead and proceeding backward. Precast segmental erection techniques for concrete bridges include the erection on falsework, erection by gantry, erection by crane, erection by lifting frame, and full span erection techniques etc. In continuous bridges, the casting cell is filled with one of two alternative sequences. In the last few decades, the precast concrete segmental bridge construction has been widely used around the world. Intermediate Diaphragms shall be provided for all prestressed concrete girder bridges as follows: Traditional PC repair methods such as installation of internal splices, external post-tensioning, and steel jacket systems have a number of disadvantages; they can be time consuming and are susceptible to corrosion. (2003) have discussed cases where PC girders were accidentally damaged and restored to their original flexural strengths. Factored load according to ACI 318-14 (2014): Maximum shear at the support is given by the following equation: Critical shear is at the distance of effective depth (d) from the face of the support. In bridges that are long enough to amortize the investment, the use of an MSS allows the transferral of the casting cell to the new span in a few hours instead of weeks. The shear strength provided by the shear reinforcement (VS) is given by: The maximum allowable shear strength VS, max is given by: Ultimate shear strength of the member ϕVn, ϕV > Vu = 581.6 kN (The section is adequate for the shear load). 6.11. The parametric design study indicated that for bridges spanning from 150–300 ft, continuous precast, prestressed concrete girder bridges with in-span splices can provide an economical alternative to steel girder bridges and segmental concrete box girder construction. Figure 27.7. P recast, prestressed concrete girders offer a cost-effective solution for the construction of bridge structures in the medium-span-length range (between 12 and 42 m [40 and 140 ft]). (a) Radar results of a vertical slice (B-scan) at the cantilever; the rebars close to the surface are displayed clearly. Therefore: Since the prestressing strands in this beam is straight, there is no vertical component of the prestressing force upon the Super T-beam. Figure 17.15. Arched trusses with PLC (Programmable Logical Controllers)-controlled strand cables at the bottom chord have been used on 70-m spans (Figure 27.8). It is essential to obtain the effective FRP strain ɛfe to determine the effective stress acting on the FRP reinforcement. REPAIR OF DAMAGED PRESTRESSED CONCRETE GIRDER AASHTO Midwest Bridge Preservation Conference, Detroit, MI Presented by: Roe Enchayan, PE Nebraska Department of Roads Bridge Impact Data Nebraska 800 The original and traditional PC repair methods outlined in Shanafelt and Horn (1980, 1985) have remained the most comprehensive US study to address the evaluation and repair of prestressed bridge members; the NCHRP Reports 226 (1985a) and 280 (1985b) sponsored by the AASHTO have incorporated their findings. The support saddles lodge hydraulic launch cylinders acting in racks to reposition the machine. The inner tunnel form for one-phase casting of box girders is extracted and reopened within the rebar cage of the next span. Long-stroke, double-acting cylinders rotate the two halves of the outer form to vertical to avoid interfering with the piers during launch. They concluded that whilst active repairs utilise the CFRP material efficiently, the difficulties in construction are more significant than the CFRP material savings. Limestone, the primary raw material in concrete manufacture, is abundantly available in nature. Therefore, it was required to locate the exact position of the reinforcement inside the structure. Solid slabs: (a) with constant thickness (b) with side cantilevers. Factored load according to ACI Committee 318 (2014): Check if the existing shear strength is adequate with new loads. Therefore, the member needs to be strengthened in shear using an FRP system. Calculation of Ig Without Topping Slab for Super T-Beam. Designing the member for the strengthening of shear capacity of Super T-beam according to the guidelines of ACI 440.2 (2017). The final loads that should be carried by the beam are G of 6 kN/m and Q of 45 kN/m. The continuity of the deck can be achieved by additional ordinary reinforcement over the piers or by posttensioning. all were upgraded by utilising CFRP composite U-wraps and installed by using a wet manual lay-up technique. Differences in pH, porosity, and chloride content are a few of the factors that may result in corrosion activity. Four areas were selected and radar and ultrasonic measurements were performed by using an automated scanner system. After launch, the main girder is lifted to the span-casting elevation and the casting cell is reclosed. Additionally, inhomogeneities inside the concrete might lead to different deviations of the velocity of electromagnetic waves and of acoustic waves, as both methods are based on different physical phenomena. Calculate the shear force at the section due to unfactored dead load Vd. This is due to the fact that this type of structure has proven itself to be durable, economical and low maintenance. The optimum span/depth ratio for constant depths is between 18 and 22. The cage carrier moves over the casting cell and lowers the cage and the front bulkhead in one operation. The strength of the steel reinforcement is 500 MPa. The most common procedure for repairing deteriorated concrete involves the removal of the damaged material and replacement with new concrete or mortar. Prestressed Concrete Continuous Box Girder Bridge Xu Luo 1,* , Lixiong Gu 2 and Xinsha Fu 2 1 School of Mechanics and Construction Engineering, Jinan University, Guangzhou city, Guangdong Province, China. These construction methods can benefit by reduction of costs, construction time, environmental impacts, and the maintenance of traffic. The formwork of the slab is often created by a series of thin, precast concrete slab elements. Reducing carbon dioxide emissions: The use of concrete in the harshest of environments is an achievement. Properties of FRP Laminate Used in Super T-Beam. Shear strength provided by concrete (Vc). (2005) on three full-scale PC specimens. PC members are susceptible to steel strand fatigue and may require strengthening to prevent further loss of prestress (Hollaway and Leeming, 1999; Schiebel et al., 2001), Hassan and Rizkalla, 2002). During routine inspection cracks were observed in the webs, which have continued to increase in size; the largest exceeded 0.5 mm.
