§ 5.4 – Material Properties
 Materials must meet AASHTO LRFD Bridge
Construction Specifications. Construction Specifications.
 Unless specified otherwise, all provisions apply for
strengths up to 10 ksi (Art. 5.4.2.1).
 Some provisions allow up to 15 ksi.
 There is an effort to extend all provisions to 18 ksi.
 If a provision does not allow higher strength, use a

maximum of 10 ksi in the calculations.
 Decks must have a minimum strength of 4 ksi.
Do Not Duplicate Prestressed Concrete: Slide #4

§ 5.4 – Material Properties
 A current problem with the LRFD Specifications is that some
provisions allow strengths up to 18 ksi, but many are limited to 15
ksi or the default of 10 ksi.
 So what do you do if you are using a high strength concrete and a
specific provision does not allow that strength?
 Use the highest strength allowed by that provision. For
example, assume a 15 ksi strength is specified but a particular
provision has not been verified for that strength. For that
particular provision, you must use a concrete strength of 10
ksi for your calculations (you may still use 15 ksi concrete in
AASHTO-LRFD 2007

ksi for your calculations (you may still use 15 ksi concrete in
strength for that particular provision). However, if other
provisions allow the use of 15 ksi concrete, you can use 15 ksi
for those provisions.

Service III applies only to LONGITUDINAL TENSION in
prestressed girders. The modifier to (LL+IM) is 0.8. The prestressed girders. The modifier to (LL IM) is 0.8. The
modifier is < 1 because it was found that the tensile
capacity of prestressed girders is underestimated. This is
largely because the loss of prestressing force is usually
overestimated and a lower bound is used for the tensile
strength (modulus of rupture).

§ 4.6.2.2.2 Distribution Factor Method for Moment and Shear
The bending moment for exterior beams is determined by
multiplying the distribution factor for interior beams by a multiplying the distribution factor for interior beams by a
factor, e, which accounts for the distribution of load to the
exterior girder. Note that this applies to type “g” even if
there is no lateral post-tensioning. Lack of lateral post-
tensioning is accounted for in the DVM.

 When the skew angle of a bridge is small, say, less than 20

, it is
often considered safe to ignore the angle of skew and to analyze the
bridge as a zero-skew bridge whose span is equal to the skew span.
This approach is generally conservative for moments in the beams,
and slightly unsafe (<5%) for slab-on-girder decks for longitudinal
shears.

In this condition, the top of the beam is usually in tension (due to the
prestressing). There is a net tensile strain in the prestressing steel of

At the level of the steel, there is a compressive strain the concrete, ε

How is the cracking moment found?
In a prestressed beam, what will eventually be the tensile
fiber will be in compression due to prestressing forces, f

The beam cracks when enough moment is applied to the
beam to remove the compressive stress and add enough
tension to crack the beam. The usual cracking strength in

In a beam, there are shear stresses from flexure. The maximum shear ,
stress occurs at the neutral axis. For most beams, there is no normal
stress at the neutral axis. However, in a prestressed beam there is a

As shown in the previous slides, the shear forces cause As shown in the previous slides, the shear forces cause
tensile forces in the longitudinal reinforcement. According
to the commentary in the LRFD Specifications, this tension
becomes larger as θ becomes smaller and V
c
gets larger.
Therefore, the tensile steel doesn’t only have to resist
moment, but it also must resist the tensile component of
the shear. It is possible that these tensile forces might be

great enough, when combined with the tensile forces due
to moment and axial load, to fail the longitudinal tensile
steel. Therefore, a check must be made to assure that
there is sufficient tensile steel to resist all the forces.

The current ODOT standard is to tie the girders
together with tie rods tightened enough to bring the together with tie rods, tightened enough to bring the
girders together, but not providing significant lateral
post-tensioning. According to the commentary in the
LRFD Specifications, for this bridge to be considered
to have the girders “sufficiently connected”, a lateral
post-tensioning force causing a stress of 0.25 ksi
across the keyway is needed Therefore this bridge

Box girders are usually controlled by Strength I, but it is difficult to estimate number of
strands using Strength I. It is easier to estimate the number of strands using Service III
and add a few strands. Final strand patterns can be adjusted, if needed, later.

The ODOT design data sheets recommend 20 strands.
Use 20 strands.
24
Design Example - Simple-Span Adjacent Box Girder Bridge
1.5.4 Strand Pattern
Why 20 strands?
1) Boxes tend to be controlled by strength design, but it is
hard to use that for strand estimation. It is easier to use
Service III and add a few extra strands.
2) The exterior girders will probably require more strand
(maybe starting with the exterior would be a better idea!).
It is poor design practice to have the exterior girders have
AASHTO-LRFD 2007
ODOT Short Course
July 2007
Do Not Duplicate Loads & Analysis: Slide #47
more strand than the interior. This causes fabrication
problems. The interior and exterior girders cannot be
made on the same bed at the same time.

2.1.1 Elastic Shortening
In the calculation of M
g
c/c bearing is used for length. Some
designers use overall length, based on the assumption that
th i d ill it it d h l d O ll l th the girder will sit on its ends when released. Overall length
gives “a more accurate M
g
”. But consider this:
In this case, the difference in the moment between overall
length and c/c bearing is 6%.
M is used for ES losses which includes E E is based on
AASHTO-LRFD 2007

Do Not Duplicate Loads & Analysis: Slide #51
M
g
is used for ES losses, which includes E
ci
. E
ci
is based on
release strength, which is unknown (what is specified is the
MINIMUM; the actual will be above this). The formula for E
is accurate to, at best, + 10%.
Design Example - Simple-Span Adjacent Box Girder Bridge
2.1.1 Elastic Shortening
The ES loss is added to the long term losses and the creep
and shrinkage equations used to find the long term losses and shrinkage equations used to find the long term losses
are stated in the commentary to only be accurate + 50%.
The weight of the beam is based on ideal cross section and
a UW of 150 pcf. Real concrete has UW varying from 140-
160 pcf and there are tolerances in the cross section.

Do Not Duplicate Loads & Analysis: Slide #52
M
g
based on c/c bearing is conservative (the M
g
term
subtracts, so using c/c bearing INCREASES ES) and it will
be needed later – so why not just use it here??

So what gives?? Is this a Service III or Service I load g
case??
Actually, it is sort of both. For all intents and purposes, the
stress at the bottom of the girder is “0” – and this is a
dividing line between Service I and Service III. Because of
the 0.8 factor on the LL, there is an inconsistency between

the two load cases. However the stress is so low, that really

The nominal flange width of 48 inches was used for “b”.

out. However, this is often ignored as this would require
an iterative procedure. If the area is adjusted for the

changes by only

the shear key cut-out as this will be filled with grout and

method is introduced.
This method brings back V

Specification.
 V
cw
(web shear) usually controls near the support, so
V

will be checked at the critical section.

 V
ci
(flexural shear) doesn’t control near the support,
so for this example, V
c
will be calculated at 0.2L.
However, in practice V

and V
cw
must be checked at
all appropriate sections.

The critical section is 29.6 inches from the face of the

approximately 3.5 feet from the end of the beam. The
transfer length is 60 bar diameters = 30 inches. Thus, the
critical section is past the transfer length, so f

This method requires two sets of shears and moments for
maximum and the second is where the moment is
maximum.
For the lane load, the shear is maximum when the lane
load is on the right 52 ft. of the girder (see the influence line
from the sectional model):

Clearly, the moment is maximum when the lane load is placed along the entire
beam. The truck load is less certain. The moment at “X” is the value of the
point load times the ordinate of the influence line. Unfortunately, it is not clear
where this product will be maximum!

Design Example - Simple-Span Adjacent Box Girder Bridge
For the truck, it is again necessary to consider two
placements: p
Placed for maximum shear
Placed for maximum moment
In this case, it just happens that both are the same – the

Why isn’t V
i

u
? V
i
is the shear associated with maximum moment. For the
truck, the same position produced both maximum moment and shear, so V
i
for
the truck is the same. For the lane, maximum shear occurs with the beam
partially loaded, but maximum moment occurs when the beam is fully loaded.
Thus, V

is different for the lane load.

Stresses at Transfer
At transfer, stresses at the end of girder tend to exceed allowables if
the strand is straight.
Stresses can be brought within the allowable stress range either by
harping or debonding the strand. The question arises as to which is
better, harping or debonding?
Boxes tend to use debonding because harping isn’t practical as the
strand would go through the void. I and Bulb T girders tend to use
harping

harping.
However, not all fabricators have the ability to harp (the bed won’t take
the hold down force). Therefore, before deciding to harp, contact
probable fabricators or the local PCI section for assistance and advice.

 If the results indicate an odd number of strands they are rounded
up to an even number to provide symmetry in the connection.
 It may be more desirable to have a larger number of shorter
strands as opposed to fewer longer strands. Girder fabrication
may be more difficult with longer strand extensions as this may
require excessive space between girders in the bed In addition

The designer chooses from the previous tables. A
reasonable design would be 12 strands extended 26
inches. That would be an 8 inch horizontal extension from
the face of the beam and an 18 inch vertical “tail” to the
hook. Any 12 strands could be extended, but spacing
them out and using different rows makes construction
easier and limits stress concentrations.

Effective Flange Width – Exterior Girder
The effective flange width is taken as one-half the effective
width of the adjacent interior girder plus the least of:
One-eighth of the effective span length = 0.125(96.25)(12)
= 144 in.
6.0 times the average thickness of the

The width of the overhang = 2.5 ft = 30 inches
Therefore, the effective flange width for the exterior girder is:

The positive moment, under the Strength I limit state, for the exterior
girder is less than that for interior girder. Although the LL increases, the
DL decreases due to the flange (slab) being narrower.
The interior girder design met all the checks for positive moment design.

Assumptions
The current ODOT standard is to tie the girders together with tie rods, tightened
enough to bring the girders together, but not providing significant lateral post-
tensioning. According to the commentary in the LRFD Specifications, for this bridge
to be considered to have the girders “sufficiently connected”, a lateral post-tensioning
force causing a stress of 0.25 ksi across the keyway is needed. Therefore, this bridge
will be considered as not being “sufficiently connected”. In practice, all this does is
change the distribution factor.

• Design truck or design tandem with dynamic allowance. The design truck shall
consists of an 8.0 kip front axle and a pair of 32.0 kip back axles. The first and
second axle are spaced 14’-0” apart. The space between the rear axles shall be
varied between 14.0’ and 30.0’ to porduce extreme force effects. The design
tandem shall consist of a pair of 25.0 kip axles spaced 4.0’ apart. [LRFD

• Design lane load shall consist of a load of 0.64 kip/ft uniformly distributed in
the longitudinal direction. [LRFD Article 3.6.1.2.4]
Since this is a simple span, the maximum moment from the LANE LOAD occurs when
the girder is fully loaded. Thus:

The HL-93 truck controls for this span length. Since this is a simple span, there is a
simple formula for finding the maximum moment. The position of the resultant load is
found and the midspan of the beam is placed halfway between the resultant and the
nearest axle load. Note that the resultant is NOT used to find the moment, just the
position of the axle loads. Also note that for a simple span, the moment is greatest
when the back axles are as close together as possible, thus the minimum spacing of 14
feet is used.

Note: Table 4.6.2.2.2e-1 has an inconsistency. It does not include this type of bridge

Strand Pattern
The ODOT Design Data Sheet for Group “B” roadway widths gives 20 strands at 2”
from the bottom. Use the strand pattern of 20 strands shown at the midspan:

Using 20 strands allows for the possibility that the Strength Limit State controls. This
pattern should work for exterior girders. Recall that the exterior girders will have the
guardrail load and increased live load because of the exterior girder factor. It is NOT
good design practice to have the exterior girder strand patterns be different than that for
the interior girders. By using the same pattern for all girders, the fabricator has the
option to fabricate exterior and interior girders in the same bed at the same time.

Note: In many example problems, the gravity moment for elastic shortening losses and
stresses at release are calculated using the overall length of the girder. The thought
here is that the girder will “sit up on its ends” and the span will be the overall length.
In this example, the center of bearing to center of bearing span is used rather than
overall length. This is done for 3 reasons:

1) This value will be needed later for service load calculations. Using it in this
calculation saves a calculation later.
2) It is conservative as it actually results in higher losses and higher stresses in the
concrete.
3) It doesn’t make that much of a difference. In this case, using the overall length
increases the gravity moment 6% and decreases the loss 4%. The concrete unit
weight, modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture and the strength are not
known with an accuracy that justifies being concerned over a few percent
differences in the gravity moment.

No Tensile Stresses!!! Compression obviously OK

Because the bottom of the girder is in compression, check with Service I:

Now it’s in tension, which is Service III ? Actually, it is sort of both. For all intents
and purposes, the stress at the bottom of the girder is “0” – and this is a dividing line
between Service I and Service III. Because of the 0.8 factor on the LL, there is an
inconsistency between the two load cases. However the stress is so low, that really
doesn’t matter – we satisfy all allowables in all cases.

Note: The nominal flange width of 48 inches was used for “b”. In reality, the flange
area is reduced by the shear key cut-out. However, this is often ignored as this would
require an iterative procedure. If the area is adjusted for the shear key, the nominal
moment, M
n
changes by only 0.10%. It may not be appropriate to reduce the area by
the shear key cut-out as this will be filled with grout and the grout may act with the
base concrete to effectively provide the complete flange width. All of this is a matter of
engineering judgment.

Because the stress is OK, no debonding is needed. However, if debonding was needed,

40% in one row can be debonded.

Steel
Bonded steel is needed at the top of the girder at the end to take the tensile forces. This
steel must resist the total tension in the top flange with a stress of no more than 0.5f
y

but not more than 30 ksi. [LRFD Table 5.9.4.1.2-1]

The first step it to find the tension in the flange. This requires the location of the
neutral axis to be determined. From the top and bottom stresses at the end, the neutral
at the end is:

Again, this tension could be reduced by calculating the force at the end of the transfer
length (including the gravity moment). Including the gravity moment will reduced the
calculated tension, but because bars only come in certain sizes, the reduction may not
change the number of bars needed.

The bonded steel must resist the total tensile force with a stress not exceeding the lesser
of 0.5f

Sectional
Design
Model
For shear design, the shear forces at various points along the girder should be
calculated. Normally, this is done at the critical section, at points where strands are
debonded or harped and then at every 0.1L.

For this design example, only the shear at the critical section is analyzed. The same
procedure for the remaining points would be used.

The LRFD Specifications adopted the modified compression field theory for shear
design with Version 1. This was called the Sectional Design Model.

In Version 4 (2007), the Simplified Method was added. The Simplified Method
restores the old V
ci
and V
cw
from the Standard Specifications.

Both methods will be illustrated in this example.

5.3.1
Finding
β and θ
The sectional design model requires the calculation of two factors:

• Concrete strain at : ε
x

• Average shear stress in the concrete: v

These two values are used to find β and θ; which are then used to find the strength of
the concrete and the strength of the stirrups.

5.3.1.1
Finding
ε
x
The first step is to find the strain at 0.5d
v
in the cross section.

It is assumed the section is uncracked and that at least minimum transverse
reinforcement will be used.
Note that θ is unknown at this point. However, the commentary allows 0.5cotθ=1 as a
simplification. [LRFD C5.8.3.4.2]

Simplified
Shear
In the 2007 LRFD Specification, the simplified shear method is introduced.

This method brings back V
ci
and V
cw
from the Standard Specification.
• V
cw
(web shear) usually controls near the support, so V
cw
will be checked at the
critical section.
• V
ci
(flexural shear) doesn’t control near the support, so for this example, V
ci
will be
calculated at 0.2L. However, in practice V
ci
and V
cw
must be checked at all
appropriate sections.

The critical section is 29.6 inches from the face of the support. Assuming a 1 ft
bearing pad, the critical section is approximately 3.5 feet from the end of the beam.
The transfer length is 60 bar diameters = 30 inches. Thus, the critical section is past
the transfer length, so f
pc
does not have to be reduced for lack of bond.

If the critical section is within the transfer length, f
pc
is reduced linearly.

One difference between LRFD and Standard Specifications is that LRFD uses cotθ in
the V

calculation. For V

5.4.2.2
Live
This method requires two sets of shears and moments for Live Load. The first is the
loading where the shear is maximum and the second is where the moment is maximum.

For the lane load, the shear is maximum when the lane load is on the right 52 ft. of the
girder (see the influence line from the sectional model):
V
Lane1
= 13.3k and M
Lane1
= 173 k-ft = 2076 k-in

The maximum moment occurs when the lane load is on the entire girder:
V
Lane2
= 12.5k and M
Lane2
= 216.3 k-ft = 2596 k-in

Clearly, the moment is maximum when the lane load is placed along the entire beam.
The truck load is less certain. The moment at “X” is the value of the point load times
the ordinate of the influence line. Unfortunately, it is not clear where this product will
be maximum!

Box Girder Example To be Used as an Example, Only

For the truck, it is again necessary to consider two placements:
Placed for maximum shear
Placed for maximum moment

In this case, it just happens that both are the same – the rear axle placed at 0.2L as
shown in the previously.

For the truck load, the maximum shear at the section and the maximum moment at the
section happen to occur under the same loading – the rear wheel of the truck 13 ft.
from the support. In this case, the maximum shear loading and the maximum moment
loading are the same, but that is NOT always the case. Be sure to carefully check all

However, this is not always the case. It just happened that way in this example.

For this example, the minimum longitudinal steel will be checked at the critical section.
The critical section 29.6 inches from the face of the support. Allowing for a 1 ft.
bearing pad and one foot from center of bearing to the end of the girder, the critical
section is 47.6 inches from the end of the girder. However, it is necessary to see if the
strand stress is reduced by lack of development.

The development length equation is unchanged for strand from Standard
Specifications, except that a factor, κ is added. This factor is the result of an October,

The critical section occurs at 47.6 inches from the end of the beam, but the
development length is 114.5 inches. Thus, the steel stress MUST be reduced to
account for lack of development.

Note that before the 2005/06 interim, the steel stress was assumed linear with
development length, not bilinear. If the stress were assumed linear here, mild steel
would need to be added. Also note that Vs < Vc/φ = 153k

Check the inside face of the bearing pad. Assuming a 12 in pad and one foot from
center of bearing to the end, the inside of the pad is 12+6 = 18 inches from the end of

As in the Standard Specification, LRFD requires bursting stirrups which can resist at

This steel must be distributed over h/4 from the end. For this girder, h/4=33/4=8.25
inches. Four #4 double leg stirrups @ 3” provides 1.60 in

However, it does not have to be and, in this case, it is probably more correct to assign
the railing to the exterior girder.

The live load moments must be multiplied by the exterior girder factor.

CAMBER AND
DEFLECTION
Camber calculations are not directly addressed in LRFD (They were not directly
addressed in the Standard Specifications, either).

The same methods used for finding camber and deflection used for Standard
Specifications apply for LRFD Designs.

ODOT invokes Article 2.5.2.6.2,which limits Live Load deflection to L/800 for
precast, simple span girders.

The limit for a Box Girder Bridge is L/800.

Since this is a limit on FLEXURAL deflection, it is appropriate to use the MDF.

MDF = 0.336(0.905) = 0.304

Lane Load = 0.640(0.304) = 0.194klf

Axle Load (rear) = 32k(1.33)(0.304)=12.9k (includes impact)
Axle Load (front) = 8k(1.33)(0.304) = 3.22k (includes impact)

The live load, positioned for maximum deflection is:

This design example demonstrates the design of a two-span AASHTO Type IV – I girder
with no skew, as shown below. This example illustrates the design of a typical interior and
exterior beam at the critical sections for positive flexure, negative flexure, shear, and the
continuity connection. The superstructure consists of five beams spaced at 8’-0” centers as
shown below. Beams are designed to act compositely with the 8.5-in-thick cast-in-place

The self-weight of the beam, haunch, and slab act on the non-composite section as a simple
span structure. The weight of the barriers, future wearing surface, and live loads with
impact act on the composite section as a continuous structure.

Slab: (96 in)(9.5 in)(0.150 kcf)/(144 in

Haunch: (2 in)(20 in)(0.150 kcf)/(144 in

/ft
2
) = 0.042 klf (ODOT BDM 302.5.2.3)
Note: The actual slab thickness of 9.5” is used in calculating dead loads. The 2” haunch
thickness is also used in calculating dead loads. The intermediate diaphragms are assumed
as steel “X” braces. These are ignored in these dead load calculations. The weight of each
brace is less than 0.3 kips. The moment caused by these braces is << 1% of the total DL
moment.

According to LRFD Article 4.6.2.2.1 permanent loads may be distributed uniformly to all
beams if the following conditions are met:

Width of deck is constant. OK
Number of beams, N
b
> 4. OK
Overhang part of the roadway < 3 ft OK
d

Cross Section listed in Table 4.6.2.2.1-1 OK

Partial of Table 4.6.2.2.1-1 - This example is a Type “k”

The section meets the criteria, so the loads may be uniformly distributed to the girders.
Future Wearing Surface = 0.060 ksf = (0.060 ksf)(34 ft)/5 beams = 0.408 kips/ft/girder
Barrier = 0.640 klf = 2 each (0.640)/5 girders = 0.256 kips/ft/girder

2- Span Continuous Example July 2007 To Be Used as an Example Only
ODOT Short Course Page 6 of 65

LRFD Article 4.6.2.2.1 allows the slab weight to be evenly distributed to the girders in the
same manner as the wearing surface and the barriers. In this case, the decision has been
made to use tributary areas to distribute the slab weight to the girders. Either method is
allowable.

incidental structures, designated HL-93, shall consists of a combination of the:

• Design truck or design tandem with dynamic allowance. The design truck shall
consists of an 8.0 kip front axle and a pair of 32.0 kip back axles. The first and
second axle are spaced 14’-0” apart. The space between the rear axles shall be
varied between 14.0’ and 30.0’ to porduce extreme force effects. The design tandem
shall consist of a pair of 25.0 kip axles spaced 4.0’ apart. [LRFD Article 3.6.1.2.2
and 3.6.1.2.3]

• Design lane load shall consist of a load of 0.64 kip/ft uniformly distributed in the
longitudinal direction. [LRFD Article 3.6.1.2.4]
• For negative moment between inflection points, 90% of the effect of two design
trucks (HL-93 with 14 ft. axle spacing) spaced at a minimum of 50 ft. combined with
90% of the design lane load.

Distribution
Factors
The live load bending moments and shear forces are determined by using the simplified
distribution factor formulas [LRFD 4.6.2.2]. To use the simplified live load distribution
factor formulas, the following conditions must be met [LRFD 4.6.2.2.1]

For a precast concrete I-girder with CIP deck, the bridge type is (k) [LRFD 4.6.2.2.1-1]

The number of design lanes should be determined by taking the integer part of the ratio
w/12, where w is the clear roadway width in ft between curbs and/or barriers. [LRFD
3.6.1.1.1]

w = 34 ft.
Number of design lanes = integer part of (34/12) = 2
Note: It could be argued that this should be designed as a three lane bridge because 3 – 11
ft lanes would fit and the minimum lane width is 10ft. However, the distribution factor is for
2 or more lanes loaded and the number of lanes isn’t in the equation so it doesn’t matter.

The following limit states are applicable: [LRFD 3.4.1]

Service III:
Q = 1.00(DC + DW) + 0.80(LL + IM)

ESTIMATE
REQUIRED
PRESTRESS
The required number of strands is usually governed by Service III load combination at the
section of maximum moment or harp points.

In a continuous for live load structure, the maximum moments do not occur at the same
place for each load. The point of maximum moment depends on whether the load was
applied to the continuous or simple structure. Thus, each point must be checked for the

In this structure, the maximum flexural Service Load stresses occur at 48.13 ft. (although
this is NOT where the continuous load moments are maximum). It is inappropriate to
simply take maximum moments without regard to location along the length of the girder.

At this point, it is necessary to determine the needed number of strands. Box girders tend to
be controlled by the Strength Limit State, but “I” girders (this example) tend to be controlled

The initial estimate of number of strands will be found from the Service III combination.
Recall that Service III ONLY applies to tension in prestressed sections.

Then, the Prestress force per strand before any losses is:

Therefore, hold-down force per strand = 1.05(force per strand)(sin ψ)
=1.05(31.0) sin 6.2

= 3.5 kips per strand

Note that the factor, 1.05, is applied to account for friction.
Total hold down force = 9 strands(3.5) = 31.6 kips

Summary of
Stresses at
Transfer
At transfer, stresses at the end of girder tend to exceed allowables if the strand is straight.

Stresses can be brought within the allowable stress range either by harping or debonding the
strand. The question arises as to which is better, harping or debonding?

Boxes tend to use debonding because harping isn’t practical as the strand would go through
the void. I and Bulb T girders tend to use harping.

However, not all fabricators have the ability to harp (the bed won’t take the hold down
force). Therefore, before deciding to harp, contact probable fabricators or the local PCI

The previous calculation made the simplifying assumption that the section was rectangular.

If this assumption is NOT made, the neutral axis, calculated using working stress concepts,
can be calculate as 16.5 inches from the bottom of the beam. The cracked, transformed
moment of inertia is 177,600 in4. The steel stress is found to be 34.6ksi which compares to

moments are caused by the upward camber of the prestressed girders due to creep and
shrinkage. The positive moment connection is needed to provide continuity at the pier.

The connection can be made either by extending mild steel out of the end of the girder into
the diaphragm or by leaving strand extend out of the end of the girder into the diaphragm.
This example illustrates bent strand connections.

Positive moments develop at the connection between girders at in interior supports due to
live-load effects (if more than two spans) and restraint caused by temperature, creep, and

2- Span Continuous Example July 2007 To Be Used as an Example Only
ODOT Short Course Page 33 of 65

shrinkage. According to LRFD 5.14.1.4.4, these restraint moments are negligible when
continuity is established after 90 days.

Development
Extended
Strands
The strands are bent up 90° into the diaphragm so that the hook extends 8 inches from the
end of the girder. This distance is required to use the equations in the following section.
The ends of the girders are placed 10 inches apart. With the 8 inch projection this leaves 2
inches of clear allowing for construction tolerances. Typically mild steel is placed in the
corner of the hooks to enhance the development length of the hooks. These bars should
have a minimum area equal to that of the bent strand or bar.

Required Area
of Strand
The design moment used for the working stress check is M
cr
while the design moment for
the strength check is 1.2M
cr.
According to LRFD 5.14.1.4.9c the stress in the strands used
for design as a function of the total length of the strand shall not exceed:

f

The design moments, parameters, and results for the design of the positive moment
connection using bent strand are found in following table. The cracking moment is found
using the gross, composite cross section, but assuming that cracking occurs at the
diaphragm. Thus the diaphragm concrete strength is used. For these calculations the
effective width of 96 inches, 0.5 inch strand, and concrete strength of 4.5 ksi were used.

2- Span Continuous Example July 2007 To Be Used as an Example Only
ODOT Short Course Page 34 of 65

When using working stress design the number of strands is assumed to calculate the length
of the strand. When using the strength design method, the length of strand is assumed to
calculate the number of strands required. Design iterations are performed to determine the
most efficient combination of strand and length.

In this example working stress design governs. Multiple iterations are performed to
determine the least length of extension of the strand required.
• If the results indicate an odd number of strands they are rounded up to an even
number to provide symmetry in the connection.
• It may be more desirable to have a larger number of shorter strands as opposed to
fewer longer strands. Girder fabrication may be more difficult with longer strand
extensions as this may require excessive space between girders in the bed. In
addition, if a larger number of shorter strands are used the stress can be distributed
throughout a larger area.

2- Span Continuous Example July 2007 To Be Used as an Example Only
ODOT Short Course Page 35 of 65

The designer chooses from the tables above. A reasonable design would be 12 strands
extended 26 inches. That would be an 8 inch horizontal extension from the face of the beam
and an 18 inch vertical “tail” to the hook. Any 12 strands could be extended, but spacing
them out and using different rows makes construction easier and limits stress
concentrations.

Also note that, consistent with the design examples in NCHRP Report 519, the haunch has
been included.

SHEAR
DESIGN
The area and spacing of shear reinforcement must be determined at regular intervals along
the entire length of the beam. In this design example, transverse shear design procedures are
demonstrated below by determining these values at the critical section near the supports.

Thus the critical section is 55.63 in + 5 in = 60.63 inches.

Calculation of
Critical Section
The critical section near the support is d
v
= 56.5 in from the FACE of the support.

Note: Assume the length of the bearing pad is 10 inches.

Thus the critical section is 56.5in + 5 in ≈ 62 inches.

Using values from previous tables, the factored shear force and bending moment at the
critical section for shear, according to Strength I load combinations.

According to Article 5.8.3.5, it is not necessary to provide any steel beyond that to resist
moment if there is a compressive reaction on the flexural compression face; in other words,
in a negative moment zone over a support, the equation in this article does not need to be
satisfied. However, it makes an exception for a continuous for live load bridge; saying that
this equation must be checked for a continuous for live load bridge.

This provision will be checked at the simply supported end, using positive moment
properties. The check at the continuous end is made in a similar manner.

So the critical section is 56.5 inches from face of support. Allowing for a 10 inch bearing

This is 5 #4 bars.

So decrease stirrup spacing from the end of the girder to the critical section (this will be 66.5
inches from the end of the girder) to #4 @ 12. Add 5 #4 bars longitudinal in the bottom
flange.

For a distance of 1.5d = 1.5(54) = 81 in, from the end of the beam, reinforcement is placed
to confine the prestressing steel in the bottom flange. The reinforcement should not be less
than #3 deformed pars, with spacing not exceeding 6.0 in, and shaped to enclose the strands.

Effective
Flange Width –
Exterior Girder
The effective flange width is taken as one-half the effective width of the adjacent interior
girder plus the least of:
One-eighth of the effective span length = 0.125(96.25)(12)
= 144 in.
6.0 times the average thickness of the slab, plus
the greater of half the web thickness
or
one-quarter of the width of the top flange of the
basic girder
= 6.0(8.5) + 0.5(8)
=55 in.

= 6.0(8.5) + 0.25(20)
= 55 in.
The width of the overhang = 2.5 ft = 30 inches

Therefore, the effective flange width for the exterior girder is: (96/2) + 30 = 78 in.

Since exterior M

is less than interior M
u
, OK

The positive moment, under the Strength I limit state, for the exterior girder is less than that
for interior girder. Although the LL increases, the DL decreases due to the flange (slab)
being narrower.
The interior girder design met all the checks for positive moment design. These were:
Nominal Strength, tension controlled, and minimum reinforcement. All of these checks
depend on M
u
and/or M
n
. Since M
U,ext

, the design for the interior girder for
POSITIVE MOMENT is adequate for exterior girder.
Stresses at transfer of prestressing force is independent of whether the girder is interior or
exterior, so no check is needed.

This is 4% greater than the moment for the interior girder. This is because the LL moment
increases. At the support, the slab moment is 0, so it has no effect. Away from the support,
the slab moment is positive, so it would mitigate the negative moment. Thus, the smaller
slab moment has the effect of INCREASING the negative moment, as compared to the
interior girder.

This compares Strength I shears and moments for the interior and exterior girders. Note that
the exterior girder shears are LESS than the interior girder
shears. Thus, the previous design works for vertical and horizontal shear. The longitudinal

§ 5.4 – Material Properties

Materials must meet AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications. Unless specified otherwise, all provisions apply for strengths up to 10 ksi (Art. 5.4.2.1). Some provisions allow up to 15 ksi. There is an effort to extend all provisions to 18 ksi. If a provision does not allow higher strength, use a maximum of 10 ksi in the calculations. Decks must have a minimum strength of 4 ksi.

§ 5.4 – Material Properties

A current problem with the LRFD Specifications is that some provisions allow strengths up to 18 ksi, but many are limited to 15 ksi or the default of 10 ksi. So what do you do if you are using a high strength concrete and a specific provision does not allow that strength? Use the highest strength allowed by that provision. For example, assume a 15 ksi strength is specified but a particular provision has not been verified for that strength. For that particular provision, you must use a concrete strength of 10 ksi for your calculations (you may still use 15 ksi concrete in the structure, you just cannot take advantage of the additional strength for that particular provision). However, if other provisions allow the use of 15 ksi concrete, you can use 15 ksi for those provisions.

§ 5.4 – Material Properties § 5.4.2.3 – Shrinkage and Creep

For calculation of creep and shrinkage, the engineer may use: Articles 5.4.2.3.2 and 5.4.2.3.3 CEB-FIP Model Code ACI 209 For prestressed concrete – the loss equations include creep and shrinkage. The main use of these provisions for prestressed concrete is for calculating restraint moments for continuous for live load bridges. These are verified to 15 ksi. The creep equations do not work for strengths over 15 ksi.

For prestressed girders, the following service load combinations are most common: Service I: Used for compression and transverse tension in prestressed concrete. Service III: Used for longitudinal tension in prestressed concrete girders. Service IV: Used for tension in prestressed columns, for crack control. Strength I: Basic load combination. Fatigue : Fatigue of reinforcement does NOT need to be checked for fully prestressed components designed using Service III (Art. (A 5.5.3.1) 3 1) Strength II-V and Extreme Event I and II are checked as warranted. Service II is for steel and never applies to prestressed concrete.

Service III applies only to LONGITUDINAL TENSION in prestressed girders. The modifier to (LL+IM) is 0.8. The (LL IM) modifier is < 1 because it was found that the tensile capacity of prestressed girders is underestimated. This is largely because the loss of prestressing force is usually overestimated and a lower bound is used for the tensile strength (modulus of rupture).

Girders carry self weight and slab weight as simple, noncomposite spans. All superimposed DL and LL carried as continuous, composite spans. Negative moment connection over pier is usually reinforced slab. Creep, shrinkage and temperature may cause girders to camber up causing positive moment up, moment.

New in 2007 § 5.14.1.4 Bridges Composed on Simple Span Precast Girders Made Continuous

Over time, creep and shrinkage of the girders may cause additional camber in the girders. This creates a positive moment at the diaphragm which often causes cracking, so positive moment connections are needed. These moments are called “restraint” moments. Experimental evidence shows that this behavior is most prevalent when the girders are very young. When the girders are old, theory says shrinkage of the slab causes the girders to de-camber, resulting in a negative restraint moment at the diaphragm. However, this is not seen in field measurements. Field measurements show the girders camber up until the slab is cast, then every thing “locks up” – no cambering or decambering is seen.

Methods of analysis are NOT covered in the LRFD Specifications. Many commercial bridge analysis programs will calculate positive moments from creep/shrinkage. PCA EB-14 is a popular hand method. Q-Con Bridge is available for free from WSDOT. Current analysis methods are questionable. Creep and shrinkage properties are extremely variable.

The MOST important variable is the age of the girders at the time continuity is established (Art 5.14.1.4.4). If the girders are less than 90 days old when continuity is established:
The engineer must estimate or specify the girder age at continuity. Restraint moments must be calculated.

If the girders are SPECIFIED to be no less than 90 days old when continuity is established:
Provide a specified positive moment connection No calculations of restraint moments are needed.

To use the 90 day rule, the 90 day wait must be in the contract documents. Waiting 90 days may not be practical Precasters do not want to store for 90 days. Production schedules may be significantly altered if a long lead is needed. In some states, precasters are paid for storage. The commentary allows the owner to change the 90 day wait to the time when ktd = 0.7 (Art. 5.4.2.3.2 and 5.4.2.3.3).

Continuous for Live Load § 5.14.1.4.5 Degree of Continuity at Various Limit States When the positive moment connection cracks, some degree of continuity may be lost. In general, the girders act as simple spans until the cracks close; then act as continuous after the crack closes. The design must consider possible loss of continuity. If the calculated stress at the bottom of the continuity diaphragm for the combination of superimposed permanent loads, settlement, creep, shrinkage, 50% live load and temperature gradient, if applicable, is compressive, the spans may be considered as fully continuous for all limit states. If the girders are specified to be at least 90 days old when continuity is established, the spans may be assumed fully continuous for all limit states. Negative moment deck cracking may be neglected.
