Title: The Design of Concrete Highway Bridges, with Reference to Standardization
Author(s): C.B. McCullough
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 205-220
Abstract:No bridge structure can ever be safely and economically designed, nor should the preparation of such design ever be attempted without an accurate and adequate knowledge of the behavior at all times and under all conditions of the waterway over which it is desired to place a bridge. In treating the question of bridge design, therefore, a study of stream conditions logically assumes first place in point of time and may be so placed in order of importance, particularly if the construction is of concrete, inasmuch as this material when once misplaced can be corrected only at a tremendous expenditure, and if the expedient of wrecking and rebuilding must be resorted to the labor cost is always excessive and practically none of the material can be salvaged.
