Paper Title:
Study on Early Cracking Resistance of PC Box Girder Bridge
  Abstract

Early cracks of box girder are widespread during the construction stage of PC box girder bridges. The cracking resistance of a prestressed concrete continuous beam bridge was conducted from the point of construction technique. Experimental study on hydration heat and mechanical properties of box girder concrete at early age were carried out. The results shown that the casting temperature of the concrete, the peak temperature and the maximum temperature difference between inside and outside of the hydration heat were very low, which were 15.7°C, 8°C and 10.2°C, respectively. The strength development of the concrete was stable, and the mixture ratio was optimal. The concrete appearance quality was fairly good without visible cracks in the construction stage. The study reveals that the crack of girder bridges during the construction stage can be avoided by taking effective measures in the construction.
