The Mycenaean Bridges - Technical Evaluation Trial

Próba oceny technicznej antycznych mostów mykeńskich

Under this project two Mycenaean bridges, both located near the village of Arkadiko in Peloponnese (Greece), were examined through a field survey. These bridges, believed to be one of the oldest preserved bridges in the world, are part of the cultural heritage of humanity. This paper presents the results of a basic static analysis with identification of the weak points of the structure, which are the consequence of its transformation from the original corbelling system to a mixed corbelling and arch system. It seems to be accidental but indispensable according to principles of engineering mechanics.
