The paper attempts briefly to record and describe the construction of this unique combination of structure and machine, and the care and attention provided over the years to produce, in the opinion of the authors, a regeneration of the best known bridge in the world, now approaching its centenary. L.W. Groome, W.I. Halse, E.M. Longton and D.L. Stephens

Lateral Forces Due to Longitudinal Prestressing of Concrete Box Spine-Beam Bridges with Inclined Web

Lateral Forces Due to Longitudinal Prestressing of Concrete Box Spine-Beam Bridges with Inclined Web

Box spine-beam bridges in prestressed concrete have become a widely used form of construction for spans in the range 20 m to 150 m. However, if inclined webs are adopted with prestressing tendon profiles parallel to those webs, the effects of longitudinal prestressing can give rise to significant transverse forces in the top and bottom slabs.

The Real Behaviour of Structures - Soil Structure Interaction

The Real Behaviour of Structures - Soil Structure Interaction

The real behaviour of structures in contact with ground involves an interactive process beginning with the construction phase and ending with a state of balance after a period of adjustment of stresses and strains within the structure and within the ground influenced by the structure. S. Thorburn
