Two Railway Bridges of Composite Costruction

This paper sets out to describe two railway bridges which have recently been reconstructed with composite steel and concrete superstructures. Brief details are given of the history of the old structures now replaced, together with alternative schemes which were considered in the design stage. Methods of construction whilst maintaining rail traffic are discussed and general conclusions regarding the use of composite construction for railway bridges are drawn from the experience of these two cases.
