TRENDS TOWARD BRIDGES BUILT WITH COMBINATIONS OF TIMBER, CONCRETE AND STEEL COMPONENTS
This is a report on composite bridge structures prepared by ARB&BA committee. The techniques and materials may be used for new bridges or for repair of existing ones. Site conditions may restrict some choices and construction equipment and procedures on a specific railroad may restrict others. While a steel or concrete bridge with a ballasted deck is probably the best choice, it is also the most costly. Alternatives should be examined, particularly on secondary lines.
