In this study, we have a research of the impounding experimental research of large span aqueduct. Caohe aqueduct is the mark building of the middle line of the South-to-North Water Diversion Project, of which the span is 30m. For this aqueduct, the structure is relatively complicated with great technical difficulties, whatís more there's no engineering experience or theoretical method to provide reference in domestic and abroad. It can be seen clear that whether the actual stressing state, deformation conditions and prestressed tension effect etc. meet the design requirements will directly affect the safe operation of aqueduct, so the impounding experiment of the aqueduct was carried out before formal operation. At the meanwhile, the deformation characteristics and stress characteristics of the aqueduct under various impounding conditions were analyzed in detail. The experiment results analysis shows that, the aqueduct structure is under a good elastic working condition with only 0.98mm maximum deflection deformation at mid-span, which meets the design and specification requirements. At the same time, all of the measure pointís stress is in the range of designed material, which means the structure form is safe and reliable and can meet the requirements of the later operation good.
