THE UK DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORT VIEW ON CONTINUITY/INTEGRAL BRIDGES

The Department of Transport will shortly publish a new Departmental Standard and Advice Note on "Design for Durability", whose requirements will apply to all new bridges built for the Department. The need to make new bridges continuous over intermediate piers, and, for short and medium spans, fully integral at their ends, is an important part of these new requirements. The paper describes the development of the documents and gives details of the requirements for continuous and integral bridges, together with some explanation of the thinking which lay behind the development of these documents. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 873218.
