Introduction
For over forty years Shay Murtagh Precast has been to the forefront of the civil engineering industry. We are industry specialists in the design and manufacture of precast pre-stressed concrete products and our product inclusions are to Utility, Rail, Infrastructure and Commercial markets.
We believe our business is bespoke. We value each project individually. Our working partners demand the highest quality in product, reliability in service and confidence in team. All of which we deliver categorically. That successful basis has led us to work on a wide range of projects throughout the UK and Ireland with leading Main Contractors and Clients. This is Edition Two of our Technical Manual for Pre-Stressed Concrete Beams. The first edition gave you a basis to some of our product solutions. This second edition incorporates more detail in response to suggestions from you the users, namely greater detail of the cross sectional dimensions and available strand locations for most beam types and the addition of span tables for Box Beams and W Beams. The popular Bridge Designers checklist has also been expanded to include more information on bridge bearings, concrete grade, the design assumptions used as the basis for the span tables and a new section on rail applications. This is working tool which in conjunction with our technical team can bring value engineering solutions to your project. Contact us on: Technical@shaymurtagh.co.uk or Tel: 0844 202 0263

Precast Concrete
Precast Concrete Precast Concrete = Strong + Durable + Versatile
These are the widely known characteristics and benefits of concrete. However precast concrete has much more to offer due to innovative, perfected and proven designs and efficient and perfected production methods.

These developments have led to time and money savings through


Reduction of initial construction costs Lower level of maintenance requirements Quick and easy installation No on-site delays due to curing

Why choose precast concrete?


Rapid and efficient build Lowest whole life costs Increased accuracy and quality of finish Low maintenance costs Large span capabilities Durability, strength and versatility High resistance to noise transmission Excellent thermal capacity Inherent fire resistance Buildability Environmentally friendly

BRIDGE DESIGNERS CHECKLIST: DESIGN NOTES


BEARINGS
As a general rule the edge of the bearing closest to the abutment should be detailed a minimum of 150mm from the end of the beam. Prestressed concrete bridge beams can be used with any type of bridge bearings. However, elastomeric strip bearings and both plain and laminated elastomeric pad bearings are most commonly used for both temporary and permanent support requirements. The connection between the bearing and the beam is a function of the type of bearing employed and any required inserts into the beam soffit can be easily accommodated. An epoxy mortar bed or similar is frequently specified for elastomeric pad bearings. Due consideration must be given to the stability of the beams during construction for the type and width of bearing selected.

CAMBER
Due to the properties of prestressed concrete units upward camber will be present. As our standard beams are cast on flat bases, built in cambers cannot normally be accommodated.

CAST IN ITEMS
Cast in items can be included providing that they do not project through the sides or soffit of our standard mouldage. Care should be taken to ensure that any cast in items do not conflict with reinforcement or prestressing strand locations.

CONCRETE
The use of cementitious materials other than RHPC may require a longer curing period prior to detensioning and therefore are to be avoided. Our standard concrete mixes have been designed to attain a transfer strength of C40/50 and a 28 day strength of C50/60. Other concrete strengths can be considered. Higher grade concrete is significantly beneficial for most bridge beam designs and can be used in beams manufactured by Shay Murtagh with negligible cost implications.

DEBONDING
It is common practice to debond varying lengths at the ends of a number of strands in order to pass the stress limit checks at the beam ends. Debonding is typically achieved by inserting the relevant length of strand into a duct. Debonding is inexpensive and a simple procedure from a manufacturing perspective. Debonding more than four strands at any single point should be avoided. If large numbers of strands require debonding, it is recommended to do so at multiple debonding points spaced at 500mm or 1000mm gaps.

ENDS
Skews up to 45 can normally be incorporated within our standard manufacturing procedures. The acute corner will be blocked out above 24 to minimise the risk of spalling. At the beam ends chamfers are provided across the soffit to prevent spalling on detensioning. Scarfed ends and solid end blocks should be avoided where possible. Where dowel slots are specified, account should be taken of the implications of reinforcement and cover detailing.

FINISHES
Top finish will be as cast with the side and soffit finishes to the DTp Highway Specification or Eurocodes. Colour variations occur between our units and any site in-situ works.

LIFTING
Our standard lifting methods are shown, however methods vary due to beam properties.

LENGTHS
The overall beam lengths should be specified. Small variations in length should be avoided.

REINFORCEMENT
Links are tied to the prestressing strand using stainless steel tying wire as standard. Links must be dimensioned to take account of strand positions and link diameters when considering cover requirements. For skewed beams links should be detailed square to the beam centreline and skewed only at the beam ends. Two piece links of different diameters and/or centres should be avoided. To avoid displacement of reinforcement in complex cages during casting it may be necessary to use tack welding. Reinforcement projecting through the sides and soffit should be avoided and reinforcement couplers should be considered as an alternative. Reinforcement projecting from the beam end should be straight where possible. Special stop ends/couplers may be provided to accommodate a bob on the projecting bar.

STACKING BEARERS
Stacking bearers are generally located at 500mm from the beam end.

STRAND
Our preferred strand size and type is 15.7mm diameter 7-wire super strands with nominal tensile strength of 1860 N/mm and relaxation class 2. Strands are typically prestressed to 209kN per strand. Debonding techniques can be used.

TESTING
Our high standards of quality control make routine load testing unnecessary.

TOLERANCES
Tolerances should be to either DTp Highways Specification or the Eurocodes.

WEB OPENINGS
Web holes are provided at standard centres as indicated in the details for each beam type. The centres of the first web holes should be at least 400mm from the beam end to avoid the risk of horizontal splitting.

WEIGHT
The weight of the beams used for handling and erection purposes is carefully calculated on a case by case basis, so the client can be economical with crane hire.

ASSUMPTIONS AND DESIGN CRITERIA USED FOR THE SPAN TABLES


The Eurocodes are used in conjunction with the relevant UK or Irish National Annexes Road vehicle live loading is applied using load models LM1, LM2 and the applicable range of LM3 vehicles (SV vehicles only). 150mm average surfacing thickness is assumed (unit weight = 23kN/m ) Grade C40/50 concrete used for the beams, grade C32/40 assumed for the in-situ concrete (Class N cement for both) Exposure Classes XC3/4 and XD1 assumed in conjunction with a 120 design life requirement. Total beam lengths are assumed to be at least 600mm greater than the span length. The upper limits given in the span tables are necessarily based upon conservative bridge types and conditions. The maximum spans can likely be increased significantly if any of the following are relevant: - Continuous multiple span bridges - Integral bridges - Wider bridges accomodating three or more notional lanes and/or wide footpaths - Exposure classes XD and XS do not need to be considered If any of the above conditions are applicable, contact the Shay Murtagh technical department at technical@shaymurtagh.ie to determine the likely increase in maximum span above what is listed in the span tables.

RAIL APPLICATIONS
The span tables provided are not applicable for rail loading. Please contact the Shay Murtagh technical department for assistance with selecting the most suitable type and size of beam for a given span and structural characteristics. Please indicate the following details: - Number and length of individual spans. - Indicate the use of full flexural continuity between spans and/or the use of integral connections between the superstructure and the abutments if applicable. - Depth of ballast above the deck. - Type of rail loading to be considered (Typically LM71). Prestressed concrete beams are ideal for the rapid installation of bridge decks required for limited railway possessions. Shay Murtagh has developed a variety of details to eliminate the need for falsework and to minimize or eliminate formwork requirements for such structures. Please contact the Shay Murtagh technical department to determine how these details may be tailored to a specific rail bridge. Shay Murtagh has considerable experience in determining the optimal construction sequence for such structures and encourages the designer to contact the technical department for any desired assistance.
