Research on Space Simulation Methods for High-Pier Long–Span Pre-Stressed Continuous Rigid Frame Bridges


Article Preview

Along with the fact that more and more high-pier long-span bridges have been constructed in China, especially in western regions of China, the issues relevant to construction safety, load capacity have attracted duly attention of many bridge engineers. Taking Xushuihe Super Bridge of Yumenkou - Yanliang Expressway in Shaanxi Province as an example, the limited space element models including phase construction,concrete box beams, thin - wall hollow piers, pre-stressed main beam tendon, high piers, and regular reinforcement are proposed to be established in this paper. Thoughts and methods are developed for analysis of the space simulation during overall-process construction and operation, and references are given for further research on this kind of bridges.
