LOW COST STEEL HIGHWAY-BRIDGES

EXAMPLES OF NEW DESIGN IN STEEL BRIDGES THAT HAVE RESULTED IN GREATER ECONOMY THROUGH USE OF CONTINUOUS GIRDERS AND BEAMS, AND STEEL PLATE FLOORS ARE CITED. THE LIFE OF STEEL STRUCTURES IS PLACED AT NOT LESS THAN 100 YEARS IF THE STEEL IS MAINTAINED BY PERIODIC PAINTING. COSTS FOR PAINTING ARE PRESENTED. IMPORTANT FEATURES OF STEEL BRIDGES ARE THEIR MOVABILITY AND THE EASE WITH WHICH THEY CAN BE REINFORCED OR ENLARGED. /AUTHOR/
