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.
This month's contribution comes from Sandra Pena Perez and concerns horizontal reactions in a beam subjected to an axial load.
