Designing and Constructing Prestressed Bridges shows how designs using prestressing methods can be utilised in the building of bridge structures. Prestressed bridges can be used in a variety of locations and styles and it can often be difficult to understand the intricacies of the design. This book solves this concern by discussing the aspects of bridge design in order to find the most appropriate solution. It focuses on troubleshooting the problems that are connected with finding the correct structural solution of bridges, the methods of their construction and the corresponding arrangement of prestressing steel.
 
With numerous examples of best practice, this heavily illustrated book covers

  • function and analysis of prestressing
  • influence of creep and shrinkage of concrete
  • behaviour of structures in service and ultimate stage
  • special problems of the structural analysis connected with different construction methods.
Designing and Constructing Prestressed Bridges is of interest to practicing engineers, junior engineers and students requiring a clear guide for troubleshooting this complex area of structural engineering.

Jiří Stráský has worked in industry since 1969, holds a teaching post at the University of Brno, has won numerous awards for design and technical papers and has been published numerous times. He is Technical Director Strasky, Husty and Partners, Ltd, Brno, Czech Republic.
 
Radim Nečas is a full-time academic at Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic. He has worked in research since 2001 and has seen projects realised in his native Czech Republic, Spain and the USA.
