Abstract

Precast yard gantries and beam launching gantries are described in their use in the construction of the Singapore Mass Rapid Transit rail system. They were used in manoeuvring superstructures consisting of elevated viaducts with precast, prestressed box girders. Manual directional valves were used in the hydraulic systems which raised and lowered the beams, the speed of which was kept constant by pressure compensated flow control valves.
