In Malaysia, segmental bridge construction has been emerging more and more for the past two decades. Segmental bridge starts to gain recognition as a preferred method of construction of bridges especially within urban area as it could accommodate longer spans compare to typical bridges. This is specially advantages when that’s a need to construct a bridge passing through a densely populated area as a longer span bridge will require less support structure (i.e. the column) and thus reducing construction damage to the affected area.
As with all bridges, segmental bridge requires routine inspection and maintenance to ensure serviceability throughout its service life. Repair works such as crack repairs or even structural strengthening is required when cracks are observed during the routine inspection. Factors that can cause cracks in the structure could be due to structure fatigue caused by cyclic loading of heavy vehicle or vandalism.
