Abstract In the prestress tensioning process of medium or short span prestressed concrete beam bridges, there are always many serious problems, such as the camber of straight beam being too large, curved beam going crosswise, and columns of rigid beam bridge cracking, that can be commonly seen because of its greater additional stress in prestressing. To solve the above problems, a new concept of repeatedly prestressed bridge structure was innovatively proposed in this work. It was proved, through theoretical and experimental comparison between this new structure and the traditional prestressed structure, that the application of repeated prestressing technology can greatly improve the mechanical and deformational performance of the low height beam during construction and long-term use. Furthermore, a kind of computational formula to calculate creep strain and deformation due to repeated prestressing in terms of time t was derived in this paper and the bearing capacity of this new structure has been tested. Finally, the work concludes that there is a bright application prospect for this new structure for medium and short span prestressed beam bridges to control deformations.
