Shay Murtagh Precast enthusiastically present the Fourth Edition of our Technical Manual for Prestressed Concrete Beams.
The Fourth Edition is launched in digital form and provides you the user with full access to BIM objects, AutoCAD files, and pdf copies of the comprehensive sweep of our prestressed concrete beam details. You will find geometric cross sections, shear reinforcement detailing and available prestressing strand locations for all of the prestressed concrete beams that we manufacture. We have also included the wide array of standard details directly associated with each prestressed beam type. Finally, the innovative details we have developed or promulgated that minimize and simplify the in-situ works associated with bridges incorporating prestressed concrete beams are also made available.
The Fourth Edition retains the section property tables and recommended span tables for each beam type that have proven so valuable for both the preliminary design and detailed design of prestressed concrete beams. The Bridge Designer’s Checklist supplements and enhances the manual and serves as a valuable resource for all users but is of particular benefit for users new to our Technical Manual or to bridge design.
We would urge you to take advantage of the broad experience and expertise of the Shay Murtagh Precast structural design team not only via this Technical Manual but in direct communication as well.
