Developments for Short to Medium Span Bridges in Australia
Abstract:Many of the bridges constructed in the last 10 years in Australia have been with superstructures using Supertee beams. These are prestressed concrete beams that are precast in versatile forms using straight pretensioned strands. The Supertee beam, developed for bridges in the 18 m to 35 m span range, has been found to be the most economical form of bridge beam for a wide range of applications. Australian bridge engineers working on international projects have 'exported' this development to other countries including Vietnam and Malaysia.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
