The Erection of Bridges

ALL bridge structures belong to one or other of four primary types, the suspension bridge, arch, supported girder and cantilever. Although these primary types have become differentiated into a large number of variations conforming to special requirements dictated by topography of site, exigencies of traffic, properties of materials and possible methods of erection, yet such variants are the outcome of a gradual evolution dating back to pre-historic times.
