Guide to bridge technology, part 3: typical superstructures, substructures and components

This Part of the Austroads Guide to Bridge Technology discusses the need for the bridge designer to address the specific requirements such as the transporting of goods and services, development of flood free routes, navigational clearances, longer spans, and construction methods to reduce costs and reduce construction times. Topics covered include the various types of bridges by their building material, ranging from timber to prestressed concrete construction, and a range of cable type bridges, including pedestrian facilities. Included in discussion in this Part are superstructure and substructure components of various materials, namely timber, steel, wrought iron, reinforced and pre-stressed concrete.
