This article examines the selection process for the most suitable type of concrete bridge. The general parameters of the scheme such as typical spans, overall deck area, clearance requirements, alignment and the overall aesthetic will start to suggest which type of bridge deck and construction methods might be appropriate.

Concrete Bridge Design and Construction series. No. 5: Concrete bridge formwork and falsework

In this article, the various types of formwork and falsework needed to construct a concrete bridge are examined. The choice of bridge type depends not only on the general parameters of the scheme (such as typical spans, overall deck area, clearance requirements, alignment and the overall aesthetic), but also on the particular and local parameters of the site, many of which are related to construction.
