    Types of Bridges On the basis o life bridges are classified in to two categories : 1) Temporary Bridges 2) Permanent Bridges Temporary Bridges The bridges which can be constructed as well as maintained at low cost and have short span of useful life are known as low cost or temporary bridges. These bridges are usually made of timber. But they may also be constructed of steel wire, old telegraph posts, hemp rope ,old rails etc. the useful lif of temporary bridges may be taken as 10 years.

    Silver Bridge 4.1 Background The Point Pleasant Bridge or so called the Silver Bridge was designed by the J.E. Greiner Company and built by the Gallia County Ohio River Bridge Company to connect Point Pleasant, West Virginia to Gallipolis, Ohio. It was designed as a two-lane eye-bar suspension type bridge, measuring 2,235 feet in total length, including the approaches. The bridge was the first eye-bar suspension bridge of its type to be constructed in the United States. [26] Figure 4.1: The Bridge

    BRIDGES AND THEIR TYPES Highway Bridges Bridges are an essential part of the transport infrastructure. General Information: A bridge is a means by which a road, railway or other service is carried over an obstacle such as a river, valley, and other road or railway line, either with no intermediate support or with only a limited number of supports at convenient locations. Fig: Docklands Light Rail Bridge, London, England. Basic features of bridges: Superstructure `The superstructure of a bridge

    Physics of Bridges The physics behind bridges is more complex than first meets the eye. To assure that a bridge is well-supported many concepts must be understood and used in the correct manner. What is a bridge? A bridge is a complex structure allowing passage across an obstacle: a structure that is built above and across a river, road, or other obstacle to allow people or vehicles to cross it. Bridge forms There are four major forms of bridges: beam, truss, arch, and suspension. A beam

    Arch bridge: Arch bridge is one of the most popular types of bridges, it came into use over 3000 years ago and remained in height of popularity until industrial revolution and invention of advanced materials that make architect to create other modern bridge designs. However, even today arch bridges remain in use, the arches can be built on much larger scales with the help of modern materials. Its curved design is the basic principle of arch bridge, it does not push load forces straight down, but

  • Essay on The Physics of Bridges

    3539 Words  | 15 Pages

    The Physics of Bridges The design of the bridge superstructure is based on a set of loading conditions which the component or element must withstand. A bridge engineer must take into account a wide variety of loads which may vary based on the duration of the load (permanent or temporary), the direction of the load (vertical, longitudinal, etc.), and the effect of the load (shear, bending, torsion, etc.). In order to form a consistent basis for design, organizations like AASHTO, American

  • Arch Bridges : The New River Gorge Bridge

    1740 Words  | 7 Pages

    Abstract This paper explores the construction aspects of arch bridges, specifically the New River Gorge Bridge near Fayetteville, West Virginia. Arch bridges are one of the oldest types of bridges and have been used for thousands of years across the world. These structures can be constructed of stone, brick, reinforced concrete or steel and can span thousands of feet across wide rivers or deep valleys. The construction of arch bridges relies on the concept of compression and begins with the load

  • And Disadvantages Of A Suspension Bridge

    765 Words  | 4 Pages

    Advantages and Disadvantages of a Suspension Bridge: As the name implies, suspension bridges hold the roadway by cables, ropes or chains from two tall towers. These towers support the majority of the weight as compression pushes down on the suspension bridge's deck and then travels up the cables, ropes or chains to transfer compression to the towers (Lamb & Morrissey, 2000). The towers then distribute the compression directly into the earth. The supporting cables, on the other hand, receive the bridge's
