The Lateral and Transverse Bracing of Bridges, II

With a little more latitude in headroom the upper laterals may be conveniently connected in the piane of the upper chord. Both struts and diabsnals consist, of four-angle members with lacing, Fig. 5. The diagonals intersect on a pair of horizontal gusset plates, and their axial lines should whenever possible intersect the axis of the main upper chords at 0. This sometimes entails larger gusset plates, but the advantage quite outweighs the cost of the slight amount of extra maherial required. Professor J. Husband
