Prestressed concrete decks are commonly used for bridges with spans between 25m and 450m and provide economic, durable and aesthetic solutions in most situations where bridges are needed. Concrete remains the most common material for bridge construction around the world, and prestressed concrete is frequently the material of choice.At every step in the analysis it is possible to output the nodal displacements, element forces, support reactions and spring forces, element stresses and tendon forces. It is also possible to output the required camber to which the structure must be cast so that the structure achieves its ... all the different aspects that are considered in the analysis of prestress concrete bridges and simplify the design process. ...
