Correspondence on Skewed, Concrete, Composite Bridge Decks by Professor R.J. Cope and Dr. M. Cope

Mr A. C. G. Hayward (F) (Cass Hayward & Partrlers): Steel composite decks, along with inverted T pretensioned beams and in situ infill as tested by the authors, currently provide the most durable forms of short-span bridge. Both feature a reliable jointless factory-made easily built skeleton on which is cast a slab with flexibility for plan geometry and tolerance.
