Transcript of Bridges

Beam Bridges
The simpliest structure
supported by an abudment or pier at each end
this type have to be stiff and strong
The weight of the beam pushes straight down on the piers
Consists of one or more towersor pylons
Economical as it allows a slender and lightstructure
Each of their cables are supportedto the deck and to a tower
In cable-stayed bridges the towers are in compression and the cablesare in tension
Most popular bridge type
Curved design because of the arch
Load forces conveyed along the curve of the arch to the supports on each end
viaduct made up from series of arches
Made up of straight connected elements
Stressed from compression and tension
Old-type (19th - 20th century)
Economical construction
However, they need a large space
Vertical suspender cables carry the weight of the deck
The cables are suspended between towers and anchored at each end of the bridge
They stretch across the towers, pull them down and create compression in them
Suspension bridges use a combination of tension and compression
