WHAT DIRECTION IN BRIDGE BUILDING?
MAJOR ADVANCES IN THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF BRIDGES OVER THE PAST TWO MILLENIA ARE TRACED, AND THE PRINCIPAL ADVANCES SINCE WORLD WAR II ARE LISTED. TWO MAJOR CHALLENGES FACING DESIGNERS TODAY ARE (1) COMBINING AESTHETICS, ENGINEERING, AND ECONOMY INTO AN APPROPRIATE BLEND, AND (2) ADOPTING A SYSTEMS APPROACH, WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR TRAINING AND MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS, PRICING, USE OF NEW MATERIALS, AND CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY.
