Bridge Design - Concrete Bent Caps

Bridge Design – Concrete Bent Caps

A bent consisting of columns and a bent cap beam is an intermediate support between bridge spans that transfers and resists vertical loads and lateral loads such as earthquake and wind from the superstructure to the foundation. The bent cap beam supports the longitudinal girders and transfers the loads to the bent columns. Concrete bent cap beams may be cast-in-place or precast and may be either conventionally reinforced or prestressed.

This course covers concrete bent caps and addresses loads, design considerations, and detailing considerations.
