No. 7: Legionnaires’ disease The recent outbreak of Legionnaires' disease in Edinburgh (June 2012) resulted in 44 confirmed cases, including the desaths of three people, with a further 18 requiring hospital treatment (7 of these requiring intensive care).

<h4>Design of Awa Shirasagi Ohashi Bridge</h4>

Design of Awa Shirasagi Ohashi Bridge

The Awa Shirasagi Ohashi Bridge, which includes novel structural systems, was recently constructed in Tokushima, Japan (Figure 1). There were a number of severe design constraints for the project. The bridge is located in a very environmentally sensitive area. The site is also in a seismic region and is frequently struck by typhoons. Furthermore, the bridge was to be founded on soft alluvium, and to be constructed to a tight budget. These exceptionally challenging constraints led engineers to adopt a novel combination of structural forms, including the ‘cable egret’ cable truss system, an improved form of the permanent tubular steel pile cofferdam foundation and a steel- concrete composite sandwich slab deck.
