This article focuses on light steel framing, which is becoming increasingly popular in a wide range of applications; used not only as secondary steelwork, but also as primary load-bearing elements.
A new series from the Concrete Bridge Development Group (CBDG). This article demonstrates the benefits of using concrete.
This article examines the prestressing for a concrete bridge. Prestressing enhances the capacity of a member that is weak in tension, but strong in compression. It effectively creates a new material that is strong in tension. A prestressed bridge has much less steel to be handled, which reduces congestion, leading to easier and quicker concrete placing.
