Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Preparing for Construction in the 21st Century

Abstract:

Curved bridge erection requires detailed preparation by the contractor, plus a sharing of responsibility and liability between the owner, designer of the new structure and the contractor. Curved birdges particularly tub girders are state-of-art designs and must be treated as such. Infrastructure rehabilitation and up-grading within metropolitan areas greatly increases the complexity of the construction process.
