This dissertation deals with main considerations on design of bridge superstructures, applying the cantilever balanced technique, bringing a procedure to be followed during pre-dimensioning this type of bridge. Presents the literature review used as the basis to dissertation, with the theories already studied on the subject. Based on these studies is drawn up the roadmap, involving the step of choosing the geometry, defining the structural scheme, the calculation of structural strain, calculating the losses of prestress, predimensioning of the prestressing steel considering the ultimate limit state and the service limit state, evaluation of the moment of closure and some important items for the detail section with steel. A numerical example is solved to illustrate the use of the concepts presented throughout the dissertation. Ends with considerations on the results obtained in the example and work and presents suggestions for future work.
