Abstract [en]

The competitiveness of composite bridges depends on several circumstances such as site conditions, local costs of material and staff and the contractor's experience. One major advantage compared to concrete bridges is that the steel girders can carry the weight of the formwork and the wet concrete. Another advantage is the savings in construction time, which saves some money for the contractor but even more so for the road users, a fact that usually is neglected when evaluating alternative bridge designs. A further step to improve the competitiveness of composite bridges is to prefabricate not only the steel girders, but also the concrete deck. In this paper a new concept with dry joints between the elements is described.
