Course Description

149-Precast Segmental Bridge Construction - Part 1 - An Introduction

A brief introduction to Precast Segmental Bridge Construction covering Casting Segments, Precast Substructure Erection, Precast Superstructure Erection — Span-by-Span Method, and Precast Superstructure Erection — Balanced Cantilever Method.

After completion the reader should have: a basic understanding of these methods of bridge construction and the associated equipment needed, a basic understanding of which construction methods and equipment choices are more suitable for specific bridge applications, and lastly, a basic understanding of how these choices can affect the cost, schedule, quality, and safety of a project.

From better understanding of the construction methods, engineers can account for better access and staging areas, and more efficient bridge designs to suit a construction method that is advantageous to the project.

Future courses that further detail each process will be available to provide a more comprehensive understanding of this type of bridge construction.

The course went over some basic factors but I would have preferred a bit more detail. The descriptions skimmed over some details that I would have thought of added interest, such as how finished groups of segments in the Balanced Cantilever method are joined to other finished groups. The course is a good value and was interesting overall.
