Abstract

Creep and shrinkage affect long term structural behaviour of concrete structures. Therefore, it is important for the structural designers to have good understanding of the way creep and shrinkage influence the structural behaviour. The construction of Tauranga Harbour Link (THL) is an opportunity to study the long term behaviour of an important bridge type in order to represent the conditions for actual structures. This paper discusses the effects of temperature, creep and shrinkage on structural behaviour as well as effects of creep and shrinkage on design. It also presents the instrumentation and monitoring system of THL to monitor the bridge behaviour during and after construction.
