Other topics include design-and-build contracts, design of gantry girders to the Eurocodes, scale effects, and a warning about overestimating the accuracy of analyses.

<h4>An introduction to bridges for structural engineers (part 2)</h4>

An introduction to bridges for structural engineers (part 2)

This paper concludes a two-part introduction to bridge design for structural engineers. Together, the two parts identify nine major issues relating to bridges, of which structural engineers more familiar with building design should be aware. Part 1 (published in January 2019) addressed construction, aesthetics, value, environment and loads. Part 2 now considers materials, structural elements, structural effects and detailing.
