Publication posted on December 1, 2011

Thi article digs into the process of evaluation of prestress losses in high-strength concrete bulb-tee girders. Sponsored research addressing the design and construction issues related to the use of high-strength concrete has been used for focusing on measured prestress losses and corresponding calculated values determined using the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications.
