This article takes a single-tower cable-stayed bridge with a steel-UHPC composite deck steel box girder as the research object and develops different casting plans for the UHPC layer on the bridge deck. It analyzes the influence of factors such as the block casting sequence of the UHPC layer on the bridge deck, whether or not to set up a post-casting section, whether or not to set up bridge deck counterweights and the range of it on the additional deformation and stress of the formed UHPC bridge deck during the construction stage, exploring the impact of various factors on the structural target bridge’s completion status (cable force, bridge completion linearity, bridge deck and steel box girder stress) under different pouring schemes. Research has shown that under the constant initial tension of stay cables, adjusting the pouring sequence of UHPC bridge decks and setting post-pouring sections is not significant in reducing the tensile stress of UHPC bridge decks. The more effective technical measure is to use bridge deck counterweight pouring during construction; the closer the counterweight is to the later stage constant load loading value, the more significant the decrease in UHPC tensile stress is. When factors such as on-site construction conditions, construction period, and labor costs are limited, local weight balancing on the bridge deck can be used.
