This English translation of the winning French variation provides the notion and layout of metal and steel-concrete composite bridges, from easy beam bridges to cable supported constructions. The publication focuses totally on highway bridges, emphasizing the root in their notion and the basics that has to be thought of to guarantee structural safeguard and serviceability, in addition to highlighting the mandatory layout tests. the rules are prolonged in later chapters to railway bridges in addition to bridges for pedestrians and cyclists. specific consciousness is paid to attention of the dynamic functionality.

Example text

Construction details for beams are considered in Chapter 5; design checks are given in Chapter 12 for steel beams and in Chapter 13 for composite (steel-concrete) beams. The cross bracing is formed from planar elements perpendicular to the bridge axis which tie the main beams together. They fulfil two basic functions: • prevent deformation of the bridge cross section, • transfer the horizontal forces which act on the main beams (due to wind, effects of curvature) to the plan bracing. The cross bracing (Fig.

All the indications are that this trend will continue. For example, plans to cross the Messina straits to link Sicily to mainland Italy include the provision of a 3300 m span hybrid cable stayed suspension bridge. 2, since around 1980, cable stayed bridges are the type that has seen the most spectacular development. 20 illustrates this rapid evolution. A cable stayed bridge in China that was opened to traffic in 2008 has a span of 1088 m and forms part of the Sutong Bridge, that has a total length of 8206 m.

The adoption of these larger elements can greatly simplify the work needed on site and thereby significantly reduce the time needed on site. For these various reasons, composite bridges, and in particular twin beam composite bridges, appear likely to continue to see widespread uptake for several decades in the world of short and medium span bridges. This will be true for both road and railway bridges. 6]. 3 Record Spans This section presents a succinct summary of the evolution of record spans for different types of bridge across the centuries.
