Abstract

This article focuses on the construction monitoring and control of a pre-stressed concrete continuous beam bridge, consisting of 13 spans. The goal is to ensure that the bridge structure meets the design requirements throughout the entire construction process. By comparing the theoretical and measured values of the bridge’s alignment and stress during the cantilever construction, closure, and completion phases, it can be observed that the deflection deformation of the bridge is generally in agreement with the theoretical calculations. After the completion of the entire bridge, the measured elevations of each section have an error range of -18mm to 20mm compared to the design elevations, which satisfies the specifications. A comparison analysis of the measured and theoretical stress values at the root and mid-span of the cantilever indicates that the stress difference at the root is within the range of -0.2MPa to 0.2MPa, and the stress differences at the mid-span after completion are 0.03MPa (upper) and 0.09MPa (lower), all of which meet the structural design and code requirements. By establishing a gray GM (1,1) model and using gray system theory, the deflection error during the construction process is predicted and controlled. The prediction accuracy of different methods is compared to determine a reasonable prediction method suitable for long-span pre-stressed continuous beam bridges, providing reference for similar engineering projects.
