Description of SBG Assembling and Casting-Penang Bridge
This chapter presents a brief description on precast segmental box girders technology of the longest South-East Asia Bridge in Penang, Malaysia followed by the construction process in terms of SBG Casting, SBG Transporting, and SBG Erecting. It highlights the importance of performing experimental static load test in construction of segmental bridges before it can be opened to the public. This chapter also notes the comparison between the period of assembly of the bridge superstructure to the cast-in-place construction.
