SF Scope Of Work

Naluchi Cable Stayed Bridge was constructed using a cable stayed system with post tension segmental box girders. Using the Strongforce multi-strand system, up to 19 strand 15.24mm tendons where installed in the segmental box girders using a cantilever system from the bridge towers which were acting as the primary load-bearing structures which transmit the bridge loads to the ground. Strongforce also executed the post tension scope for the bridge decks comprising of 15.24mm tendons up to 12 strands per tendon, this was to provide extra strengthening to the deck slab which is required to resist the horizontal compression loads due to the main cables pulling sideways from the bridge towers.
