The penultimate article in this series examines the special types of concrete bridge. Concrete cable-stayed, extradosed and stressed ribbon bridges are all described here, together with the special features of concrete footbridges and railway bridges.
The first in a ‘steel construction’ sub-series, this article discusses the often competing demands on the structural designer to balance frame cost against architectural demands and the cost of other building components, such as curtain walling.
This article aims to provide the reader with a basic understanding of the hybrid test method, including its contextual development and potential as a dynamic testing technique.
