The Design of Kylesku Bridge

The paper describes the development of the design of Kylesku Bridge as a sequence of design studies and decisions, from studies of the location of the new bridge and of different types of structure to final design. The new bridge is a frame with V-shaped supports. It is built in concrete and the deck is a box girder that is prestressed. The bridge was designed to be built in stages and within constraints that were specified in the contract documents. J. Nissen, K. Falbe-Hansen and H.S. Stears
