Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Steel Structures


In the examples of unbuilt bridges discussed, many different ideas and concepts have been proposed. Most appear to be basically sound in nature, although rather innovative and daring. Those that take a quantum leap in concept or span would need further research with regard to materials and behavior. Some could be built with existing technology, although at a premium cost. Some would project a whole new and exciting vision of bridge esthetics. Generally, these structures were not constructed because they were either too innovative or too expensive or both.
