The Design of Short Span Bridges

Several bridges which have been designed by the author's firm are described. The reasons for the choice of designs are given and the methods used in analysis and some detail problems are described briefly. Emphasis is placed on choosing a simple and natural design to suit the particular bridge problem and developing this in a sympathetic way with regard to the final appearance; careful attention being given to details.
