Abstract:

The Shanghai Yangtze River Bridge, which is 10 km long crossing the north Yangtze River Channel, is built to serve both highway and light-rail transit line. This paper describes the following three main problems: (1) The structure restriction system and the specialty of separate type steel box girder of the main navigation channel cable-stayed bridge. (2) The scheme conformation, structure characteristics and construction methods of the composite girder in deep water area, specially the optimization design of structure and construction step based on the condition that the whole span hoisting construction method should be used. (3) The security of light-rail train on a bridge serves both highway and light-rail transit line, mainly the feasibility and relevant research results on the problem that the light-railway is set on the cantilever of the girder.

Keywords: COMPOSITE BOX GIRDER; FULL-SPAN FABRICATION AND ERECTION; LOCAL VIBRATION EFFECT; RAIL-CUM-ROAD BRIDGE; RUNNING SAFETY OF THE LIGHT TRAIN; SPREAD STEEL BOX GIRDER

    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.
