Engineers Design Texas Size Beams

San Antonio, TX – September 2014

Recently, UNINTECH engineers completed the design of some of the largest concrete supporting beams to be installed in the state of Texas. UNINTECH worked with Sundt Construction on the TxDOT IH-10 at Ralph Fair Road overpass project.

On Saturday, September 20 crews closed all main lanes of IH-10 at Ralph Fair Road to set the nine bridge support beams. The highway was scheduled to reopen early Monday morning but crews finished work ahead of schedule allowing to highway to reopen Saturday afternoon.

UNINTECH engineers designed the nine support beams each measuring 164 feet in length. The overpass was originally designed by TxDOT using steel plate girders because of the long single span. The bridge spans 164 feet across Interstate Highway 10. UNINTECH to review the possibility of using concrete girder to save on cost, thus recommending the use of TX 62 girders to replace the steel girders. Our engineers analyzed the bridge vibration because of the long span and provided beam release strength design to make sure the beams worked in this special case.
