Types of Bridges - Arch, Girder, Cable, Truss, Rigid Frame

Below is the list of 5 main types of bridges: Girder bridges Arch bridges Cable-stayed bridges Rigid Frame Bridges Truss bridges. It is the most common and most basic bridge type. In its simplest form, a log across a creek is an example of a girder bridge; the two most common girders are I-beam girders and box-girders

Materials Used in Bridges Construction

The traditional building materials for bridges are stones, timber and steel, and more recently reinforced and pre-stressed concrete. For special elements aluminum and its alloys and some types of plastics are used. These materials have different qualities of strength, workability, durability and resistance against corrosion. They differ also in their structure

Integral Abutment Bridges | Jointless Bridges

Integral abutment bridges are joint-less bridges where the deck is continuous and connected monolithically with the abutment walls. These bridges accommodate superstructure movements without conventional expansion joints. With the superstructure rigidly connected to the substructure and with flexible substructure piling, the superstructure is

Why Study Bridge Hydraulics

Many people, indeed many engineers, who are not familiar with the subject think that constructing a bridge across a river is entirely a problem in structural engineering. They assume that the bridge opening can be made so large that it will completely span the river at such a height that floodwater will never rise anywhere near the deck. If this was always true there

How to Design a Bridge

The designer should have first seen and studied many bridges in the course of a long learning process. He should know what type of beam may be suitable in the available conditions, either a beam bridge an arch bridge or a suspended one. He should also know the influence of foundation conditions on the choice of spans and structural systems etc. hence, the designer
