An Experimental Study on Behavior of Multi-Spliced Girder with Dry Joint Kim Kwang-Soo; Seo Bong-Won; Park Sun-Kyu;
To cope with increasing requirements of cost reduction, labor saving, and rapid construction, the purpose of this study is to investigate the structural behavior of PSC monolithic and spliced girders. Three tests were conducted on reduced-scale girder specimens having same type. This paper presents the result of experimental studies on the load-deflection behavior in which different joint and amount of tendon as major variables were investigated. The first one used a monolithic girder was arranged with three tendons. The second one used a spliced girder was joined with three tendons after producing five segments. And the third girder was produced in same conditions with the second girder and arranged with additional tendons. The experimental results show the difference of behavior between monolithic and spliced girders.
