Abstract
Improvements in concrete technology, reinforcing systems and manufacturing enable the use of longer reinforced precast concrete girders, contributing to the competitiveness of this solution for bridge decks. The weight of the girders should be limited in order to achieve an optimum between span length, transportation costs and lifting costs. The current tendency in design is to minimize the width of the flanges of the girder. This makes the element more flexible to lateral deformation and increa...
