The analysis was focused on three post-tensioned slab bridges, constructed in 1950s. Two of them function normally and will probably achieve the life span of 100 years required by the relevant regulations. The third one will likely be demolished soon and replaced with a new reinforced concrete frame bridge. To its degradation contributed the faulty diagnosis of its technical condition during its periodic technical inspections. The introduction briefly characterises the development of the prestressed structure theories reviewing papers on concrete rheology and monographs looking into prestressing. The paper is based on the existing fragments of the technical design documents concerning the bridges in question. The bridges were designed by Polish civil engineers.
