Timber bridges can have many advantages. A high strength to weight ratio enables relatively lightweight structures to be built, minimising the loads on any new or existing foundations and maximising the potential for off-site fabrication of large components or even entire bridges.
The study on the use of prefabricated earth construction products in the field of structural engineering consisted of
visiting a number of buildings, and attending a conference and a course on the subject. These activities took place in Germany, India and Scotland, and were aimed at assessing the feasibility of constructing with earth construction materials, more particularly prefabricated low processed earth products, in Northern Europe.
