Seeb Corniche Road bridges

Übersicht

Project description

The project involved the construction of six bridges along the Corniche Beach Road at Seeb, Sultanate of Oman. The bridges were built to allow a safe discharge of storm water into the sea while carrying traffic, even during heavy rain and flooding. The bridges all have precast, post-tensioned I-girder decks. The number of spans per bridge varies between four and six. The bridges were designed with spans supported by a combination of elastomeric bearings and shear keys at the fixed end, and by a combination of deformation sliding bearings and horizontal force guided bearings at the free end.

mageba scope

mageba supplied four types of bearing for this project. Vertical loads are carried by a total of 391 LASTO-BLOCK elastomeric bearings (type B, at fixed ends of spans) and 391 LASTO-FLONBLOCK deformation sliding bearings (type Ga, at free ends). Horizontal loads are resisted by a total of 115 RESTON-FORCE shear keys (type SD, with Hmax = 800 kN, at fixed ends) and 115 RESTON-FORCE horizontal force guided bearings (type FE, with Hmax = 350 kN, at the free ends).
