Element optimisation techniques in multiple DB bridge projects

Sambu Potty, Narayanan and C.T, Ramanathan (2008) Element optimisation techniques in multiple DB bridge projects. [Non-Citation Index Journal]

PDF - Published Version


Management of multiple bridge projects relies on the selection and optimisation of elements. Problems are avoided if construction knowledge and experience are utilised. A systematic selection process is required during design stage to maximise the use of available resources. Multiple bridge designs incorporate practical suggestions from the field personals. The case study in East Malaysia considers problems of material, labour and equipment availability. The average ratio presence of each element is calculated to show its impact. The need of element optimisation techniques in bridges is emphasised. The database is presented and also the process undertaken during the design is discussed.
