This manual gives Banagher Precast Concretes view of the new design process for prestressed bridge beams to the Eurocode and it is hoped will promote more use of precast bridge beams and a common and agreed understanding of the codes.
The manual considers the design of the innovative Banagher W-beam in a typical two span road bridge. The internal beam is designed in detail and as the loading code is also new, the approach to the use of this code is also demonstrated.
Other areas of the whole bridge design are commented upon, particularly where they can have an important influence on beam design.
The format is for the manual to have the commentary on the left page and the design information and the calculations on the right page.
The manual will be out in the Autumn. Please contact the office to pre-order a copy.
