Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1961, Vol. 87, Issue 7, Pg. 199-214

Document Type: Journal Paper


Discussion of use of high strength concretes and steels and development of prestressing; model statics and selection of structural types; all new methods show tendency toward lighter structures, but it is concluded that concrete sections of modern bridge structures are still larger than necessary for stable construction and durability.
