Guide to bridge technology: part 3: typical superstructures, substructures and components

Part 3 discusses the need for the bridge designer to address the specific requirements such as the transporting of goods and services, development of flood free routes, navigational clearances, longer spans, construction methods to reduce costs and reduced construction times. Topics covered include the various types of bridges by their building material, ranging from timber to prestressed concrete construction, and a range of cable type bridges, including pedestrian facilities. There is also discussion on foundations, bearings, decks and deck joints. Ancillary components including traffic barriers, noise barriers, protection screens and pedestrian rails are also covered.
