This article examines the various methods for the design and construction of concrete arches, frames, tunnels and jacked boxes, which cover the whole range of bridges from the smallest culverts to the largest concrete spans in the world.
This article discusses connection behaviour, design methodology and the classifications given in BS EN 1993-1-8. Connection design for structural integrity and the use of preloaded assemblies are introduced. Challenges connected with multi-member or unorthodox connections are also discussed.
