In this thesis, it is aimed to perform the construction stage analysis of reinforced concrete highway bridge constructed with balanced cantilever method. For this purpose, analytical studies are done on a reinforced concrete bridge. In the analyses including construction stages, time dependent geometrical variations and material properties such as elastic modulus, shrinkage and creep are considered. The result obtained from the analyses are compared with these of the analysis for non-construction stage.
Three main sections are considered in this thesis. In the first chapter, some information about issues, formulations and purpose of the study are given. In the second chapter of the thesis studies and findings are considered. In the third section of the thesis; conclusions and some suggestions related to the thesis study are represented. Lastly, references and autobiography are represented.
Key Words : Balanced Cantilever Method, Highway Bridge, Finite Element Method, Consruction Stage, Time Dependent Material Properties
