Abstract

The high expectation of esthetic and functional quality in modern civil infrastructure has resulted in the increased demand for long span bridges. In advanced or developing countries, long span bridges such as cable-stayed and suspension bridges are considered even as landmarks that symbolize the prosperity or culture of the region. These long span bridges require higher level of design and construction technologies than other types of bridges. In particular, the construction of cable-stayed bridges involves precise and sophisticated operation of construction equipment such as derrick cranes. However, it is not easy to plan the operations of a derrick crane before the actual construction process takes place. Unexpected spatial constraints in the construction site may hinder the smooth operation of a derrick crane, which leads to lower than expected productivity and safety. This study applies interactive three-dimensional (3D) computer aided design (CAD) to the derrick crane operation for the purpose of identifying potential problems. Construction managers can have the two way process with the 3D CAD system to interactively test their construction plans and scenarios. The case study shows that the interactive 3D CAD system significantly improves the constructability of the cable-stayed bridge construction.
