The author describes the different elements that influence the quality and performance of concrete bridge decks in general. He makes particular reference to the innumerable bridges that were constructed many years ago with concrete bridge decks and which are still giving satisfactory service. He describes the design methods for concrete bridge decks, methods of construction which must be followed for satisfactory results, and types of equipment used. Among the bridges cited as examples are the international Fray Bentos--Puerto Unzue Bridge and the Zarate-Brazo Largo viaduct complex. (Author)
