oa Civil Engineer in South Africa - Model test of a skew bridge deck prestressed in two directions
Many tests on reinforced concrete skew slabs have been reported and various methods of analysis have been put forward. However, little information is available on the test behaviour of skew slabs prestressed in two directions. To study the behaviour of a prestressed skew slab of uniform thickness a suitable slab model was designed and tested in the laboratory. This paper focuses on the serviceability and ultimate limit state performance of a two-way prestressed slab, gives some details of analysis and discusses the testing procedures proposed by CP 110 : Part 1 : 1972.
