Segmental Bridge Construction g g Plans Review Group p


Experience and Future Trends Segmental top-down construction techniques are cost effective on large waterway projects where insurance and labor rates are governed by time working from barges. Larger projects generally make segmental construction more cost effective due to the casting yard setup cost being spread over more segmental units and when the amount g of work is sufficient to overcome learningcurve inefficiencies.

Experience and Future Trends (cont.) Segmental alternatives have been competitive against steel box options where p g p the number of segmental units is sufficient (g (greater than 600-700 units). ) Segmental options have not been competitive on small projects when bid against simple span prestressed beam options.
