This paper describes component bridges used in Europe and South America. These bridges are designed on the sectional principle wherein individual parts are standardized and are fabricated with such accuracy that they can be interchanged and used on any point of the bridge. Three types of component bridges are discussed: fast-assembly bridge of the Rheinhausen type, D (from the German word for triangle) bridge, and SKB bridge. Discussion of both design and erection of these bridge types is presented.
