Aicon Girder : PSC girder for Mid-Span(~55m), Enhanced Safety & Constructability
Laterial bending phenomenon of PSC girder can increase the risks associated with transportation and erection, as well as pose a threat to the safety of workers during high-altitude construction works.
The Aicon girder is an innovative method that enhances constructability and safety by preventing lateral bending caused by the introduction of prestress. It achieves this by symmetrically arranging tendons across the entire span and applying tension in just one step. This overcomes the drawbacks of traditional PSC (Prestressed Concrete) girder and enables longer-span bridge.
Furthermore, the safety of Aicon girders has been confirmed through various experiments, ensuring a more secure construction process.
