Bridge Foundations-Part I

In designing a river bridge, a careful study of currents, together with erosion and silting action of the river, is of importance. Many structures have been badly undermined as a result of this phase of design being neglected. Adequate protection to abutments and piers should form part of the construction programme to ensure that the capital expenditure on the bridge is not mortgaged by heavy maintenance obligations. H.E.
