Progressive Composite Bridge Construction with Cement Concrete Pavement

Paper by HRDLICKA KRATOCHVIL from ISCR 12th 2014 Prague Czech Republic

The project deals with research on effective composite steel and concrete bridge structures, profiting from directly running cement concrete pavements. The aim is an innovative layout solution, technology of construction and maintenance and research of new formulas for concrete parts which will lead to lower collective costs of production and maintenance. The project proposal is focused on research and subsequent practical application of two currently developed contemporary cutting-edge technologies, the combination of which is unique worldwide in terms of the complexity of the solutions and technological development. The technology is being developed for small and medium bridge spans for which standardisation is not a problem. On the contrary their unification is advantageous as regards both production and maintenance.
