A Girder bridge is a bridge that utilizations braces as the methods for supporting the deck. A bridge comprises of three sections: The Foundation of projections and bearings and Substructure of projection and dock and The Superstructure (brace, bracket, or curve) and deck. A Girder bridge is likely the most usually fabricated and used bridge on the planet. Its fundamental plan, in the most improved frame, can be contrasted with a log extending from one side to alternate over a stream or river. All bridges comprise of two principle parts: the substructure, and the superstructure. The Superstructure is everything from the bearing cushions, up - it is the thing that backings the heaps and is the most unmistakable piece of the bridge. The Substructure is the establishment, what exchanges the heaps from the superstructure to the ground. The two sections must cooperate to make a solid, durable bridge. Prestressed Concrete is fundamentally concrete in which interior worry of reasonable extent and dispersion are presented pressure coming about because of outer load are concentrated to wanted degree. In this research work we are analyzing a girder bridge with the effect of prestressed concrete and compare it with general deck bridge. In terms of finite elemental analysis, forces and cost analysis. Here it is concluded that implementation of prestressed deck is resulting in economical, stable and load resisting member.
