the unfactored live loads must be less than span length L over (L/) for bridges without pedestrians and L/ for bridges with pedestrians. These deflection limits are an indirect method of trying to control th e frequency of vibration of the bridge. 3 The third requirement for serviceability, and in some respects the most important. Suspension bridges are strong and can span long distances. One early bridge was designed and built in in are expensive because they take a long time to build and require a large amount of are commonly found across harbors with a lot of boat primary elements of a suspension bridge are a pair of main.

Tied-arch bridges can be created with a single arch member, two independent arches or two arches braced together, In the latter case, a more graceful bridge can often be created by leaning the arches towards each other and this has the structural advantage of reducing the span of the inter arch bracing.

surface every year. We have specifi ed larger beams than are structurally necessary in order to provide for a few decades of erosion before they will have to be replaced. Abstract. Wind-resistant design of bridges, also known as bridge aerodynamics, is an important element of long-span bridge design.

First, an overview of wind effects on bridges is given, and the types of wind-related phenomena, such as buffeting, vortex-induced vibration, flutter, and galloping, are briefly explained.

Span is the distance between two intermediate supports for a structure, e.g. a beam or a bridge. A span can be closed by a solid beam or by a rope. A span can be closed by a solid beam or by a rope. The first kind is used for bridges, the second one for power lines, overhead telecommunication lines, some type of antennas or for aerial tramways.Steel wires with a breaking strength of up to MPa are now available.

Based on these steel strengths, the maximum span length of a suspension bridge can be 10 m, the maximum span length of a cable-stayed bridge can be m, and the maximum span length of an arch bridge can be : Man-Chung Tang, Man-Chung Tang.A bridge is a structure built to span a physical obstacle, such as a body of water, valley, or road, without closing the way is constructed for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle, usually something that can be detrimental to cross otherwise.

There are many different designs that each serve a particular purpose and apply to different situations.
