The Lateral and Transverse Bracing of Bridges

The subject of the transverse bracing of bridges appears to have received comparatlvely little notice at the hands of English writers. The relatively few works published in this country dealing with matter relating to bridge design either ignore the subject almost entirely or dismiss it with only a cursory notice. On the other hand Continental and American writers have for many years past given to this subject that prominence which it both needs and merits. The theory of the design of transverse bracing has been placed by foreign authors on a fairly rational basis in so far as such design is susceptible of close theoretical treatment. Possibly the prevalence of the greater number of large span bridges abroad has been responsible for focussing attention on this branch of the subject since in larger spans the transverse bracing is more susceptible to proportionate design and is more urgently necessary than in smaller spans.
