Paper Title:
Selection of Concrete Creep Analytical Models for Modern Prestressed Bridges
  Abstract

The modern prestressed concrete bridges have the characteristics of large-span, high concrete strength, reinforced volume prestress and linear shape complexity. The structure bearing capacity and durability are considerable impacted by concrete creep, such as stresses redistribution and deflections increase. Some of the prediction concrete creep models that are being widely used at present are briefly introduced in this paper. Based on the analysis of existing research achievement, for the aim of improving the calculation accuracy of creep effects in bridge structures, several main problems that should be paid attention to in concrete creep analysis are pointed out from four aspects: (1) in design stage, the reasonable creep prediction model should be selected in accord with the local building materials and environment conditions; (2) during the analysis of creep effects, the initial stresses state and the stresses redistribution should be attended; (3) the reliability of prestress loss calculation should be considered in analysis of concrete creep effects; (4) the differences between normal construction materials and that of new types should be taken into account in concrete creep analysis.
