Evolution of the Continuous Truss Bridge

This paper traces the international evolution of mathematical theory and construction processes that affected the design, construction, and use of continuous truss bridges in the United States. It covers the evolution from intuitive designs in wood and iron of the early 19th century to the mathematically rigorous designs of long-span continuous steel trusses in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
