The 15 m to 45 m (50 ft to 148 ft) span range is representative of the majority of bridges encountered in motorway, principal and trunk road schemes. The difference between an expensive and an economical bridge originates from a few very simple decisions at the design stage. The purpose of the paper, therefore, is to offer a few suggestions at a practical level the adoption of which should generally lead to economic solutions for the more regular bridge situations.

<h4>Interactive Design and Dealing of Structural Steelwork Constructions Using a Computer</h4>

Interactive Design and Dealing of Structural Steelwork Constructions Using a Computer

A technique for the automatic and interactive design of connections in structural steelwork using a computer with visual display facilities is described. The program can deal with inclined, oblique and eccentric beams with welded end plates and high-strength friction-grip bolts. A design example is given to illustrate the facilities provided. The discussion includes an economic assessment which indicates that the cost of using the technique is low. M.G. Moore and D.M. Brotton
