Prestressed Concrete Bridges

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.

Prestressed Concrete Bridge - an overview ScienceDirect ...

The prestressed concrete bridge girder shown in Fig. 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). A 150-mm thick topping slab was cast over the top flange of the beams after full stressing. The bridge is upgraded for HLPV resulting in an increase in the unfactored live loads applied to the beam.
