Sufficiently rigid under the construction loads
to maintain the designed shape of the concrete,
For instance, thanks to the reduced shell construction loads
, the thickness of the floor slab and hence the depth of the foundation can be minimized.
5 can also serve as a flexible guideline for assessing the maximum construction loads
on the pile cap upon which the decision on accelerating the construction can be made.
Conclusions: Analysis for construction loads
indicated that first segment near the face of the pier was over prestressed due to cantilever tendons during construction to resist the total dead load of the girder and other construction loads
As earth fill needs to be placed on top of the steel roof of the tank and also taking into account construction loads
, we need to consider equally spaced steel internal columns with radial girders to support the roof structure.
The infill concrete is generally cured quickly and, in any case, the load capacity of the steel alone may be required upon the almost construction loads
Already, changes have been observed in the replacement of arsenic-treated wood with non-arsenic copper-treated wood within construction loads
The design of the precast panels is critical," says Hodgson, "and requires expertise to anticipate the extreme construction loads
In addition, the completed back spans provide a very stable structure to resist wind and other construction loads
and to greatly simplify geometry control operations.
The I-35W bridge collapse was a tragedy, which the National Transportation Safety Board concluded was caused by a design flaw, compounded by large weight increases from upgrade projects over the years, and the traffic and construction loads
on the day the bridge collapsed.
Partial stressing of the post-tensioning tendons, for construction loads
, occurred at the completion of each of the four deck stages.
Parsons also was responsible for checking the bridge for construction loads
, and procedures for realigning the superstructure spans.
