Course Description

233-Precast Segmental Bridge Construction - Part 4 - Balanced Cantilever Erection Method

A follow on course to Precast Segmental Bridge Construction – An Introduction providing more detailed information on the Balanced Cantilever method of erection. Topics covered in the course include: Erection Equipment, Lifting and Transporting Segments, "Table-Top" Fabrication and Erection, Erection Geometry, Balanced Cantilever Erection, and Stressing and Grouting.

After completion the reader should have: a better understanding of the balanced cantilever method of bridge construction and the associated equipment needed, an understanding of the staging and some details of the phases to complete bridge spans, and lastly, the understanding of the method will assist the engineer in cost, schedule, quality, and safety decisions 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 other segmental bridge processes will be available to provide a more comprehensive understanding of each type of bridge construction.

Again, a great use of pictures to present the information. Questions 10 & 13 were a good test of your understanding of the erection processes. Well done!
