THE APPEARANCE OF CONCRETE HIGHWAY STRUCTURES
This booklet, which complements the publication, Appearance of Bridges (1964) extends the advice on the use of concrete in structures, particularly in relation to the use of finishes and detailing affecting the weathering of the structures. It is noted that a useful approach is to visualize the finished bridge, in three dimensions, on its site with the help of techniques will enable the design to be studied in its final form, since bridges are neither seen purely in elevation nor in cross-section. Preliminary design considerations, finishes (grooves, exposed aggregate, precast facings, masonay facings, paint), formwork (materials, linings, design, ribbed formwork, formwork for bridge soffits) and elements of structure (abutments and bank seats, paving, wing walls and retaining walls, piers and columns, decks, fascias and string courses, and parapets) are covered.
