 Bridge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example, it may be a bridge carrying a highway and forbidden for pedestrians and bicycles, or a pedestrian bridge, possibly also for bicycles.
Bridges may be classified by how the four forces' of tension, compression, bending and shear are distributed through their structure.
Bridges can also be classified by their lineage, which is shown as the vertical axis on the diagram to the right.

 Bridge
Owing to practical limitation in the grade of the bridge deck this type is quite restricted in its load carrying capacity relative to its span.
This kind of bridge is particularly pleasing to the visual senses, with the most beautiful of the type being generally acknowleged as the Golden Gate Bridge at the entrance to San Francisco Bay.
This type of bridge is typically used for temporary military use, but a number of permanent bridges of this type have been built in the state of Washington, USA.

 Through & deck plate Girder bridge
The cover plates are made of postcard stock; all are 1' 6" wide, but they vary in length from the shortest (the top cover plate) to the longest, which spans the length of the girder around both corners and to the bases at the bottom ends as in Fig.
The entire bridge is painted a dull fl and lettered in silver, white or gold, depending on the practice of your road.
This type of bridge is built by the same method as the through girder model, except that in this case the ties and rails are laid on top of the structure.

The plate girder bridge seemed to be right type of short, but sturdy bridge for this module.
They are fake plate girder bridges because I simply attached the sides to the subroadbed, thereby providing the look of the bridge, but yet keeping a solid support for the track.
Most of the bridges are skewed over the two creeks on the module, so the longest bridge came out to be 20 scale feet.

 PUBLIC ROADS On-Line (Autumn 1996) - FHWA Launches New Nationwide Seismic Bridge Design Training
Bridge designers have had difficulty applying the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) bridge seismic design specification since its adoption in 1983 because it requires an understanding of dynamic analysis, seismic hazard concepts, elastic and inelastic structural response, soil-structure interaction, and structure ductility, among other things.
The superstructure is composed of four steel plate girders with a composite cast-in-place concrete deck.
All substructure elements are oriented to the centerline of the bridge.

 Context for World Heritage Bridges
Bridges were one of the first structural uses of iron, preceded only by columns (not yet beams) to support the floors of textile mills.
Bridges in areas other than Europe and the USA should be investigated, as the colonial empires of several nations were at their peak during the autumn years of the 19th century.
This bridge, designed by E H Duggan and Phelps Johnson with Ralph Modjeski as consultant, was criticized by many engineers as being the ugliest, while the cantilever was generally regarded as a type, especially those of American origin, whose profile was unsightly despite their record lengths.

 McGraw-Hill AccessScience: Plate girder
Plate girders are commonly used in bridge structures where large transverse loads and spans are encountered.
On average, the height (measured from the top of the top flange to the bottom of the bottom flange) of plate girders is one-tenth to one-twelfth the length of the span, which can vary based on the loading and architectural requirements.
The dimensions of plate girders are tailored to specific applications by adjusting the width and thickness of the web and flange plates along the length of the beam.

A plate girder bridge is a bridge often seen supporting railroad roadbeds over short spans, this bridge may be a shallow U-shape in cross section with the roadbed at the bottom of the U or the bridge may be entirely under the roadbed.
For the under roadbed type the two members of the bridge will be connected at the bottom with additional light truss elements and at the top with decking to form a box structure.
The above roadbed type cannot be completely boxed, so additional stiffeners may be provided as seen in the illustration above left.
