Comparative Analysis of Several Construction Scheme of a Large-Sized Tie-Arch Aqueduct
An aqueduct of larger-span prestressed concrete arch structure for river diversion project is located in coastal areas, and raises difficult questions on deformation and stability control of the construction process due to greater wind load and poor soil. Due to the limited width of bracket erection, this paper put forward five possible construction schemes, and does the comparative analysis using three-dimensional finite element program, and gets the economic and reasonable one. Finally conduct a pressure test after the bracket erection, and verify the analysis results using measured stress and deformation data.
