Sample text

Its purpose is, after a brief historical perspective, to act as an introduction to the following chapters on prestressed concrete, and to highlight specific aspects of the subject particularly relevant to the design of bridges, and which the author in his practice has concluded are inadequately understood by many engineers. 2 The historical development of reinforced concrete The first known use of concrete is for a floor in Israel, dated to approximately 7000 BC. The Egyptians used concrete as an infill for stone-faced walls from about the second millennium BC, and the Greeks used it as a mortar or render from about 500 BC.

If this chief designer is interested in producing a design of quality, he will be prompting his assistant to think creatively about his task, and giving him ideas to refine and develop. Although the majority of such chief designers will never aspire to being recognised as artists, the best will. 18 Salginatobel Bridge by Maillart (Courtesy: Madame Marie-Claire Blumer-Maillart) they deserve. 18. These are works of art, but they are the work of engineers; they could not have been carried out by architects without engineering training.

Such an arch bridge design can only achieve distinction if it is a rational choice and if the designer then strives for and achieves economy in the design as described above. It could not be considered a good design if the designer had imposed an arch on the site, despite its unsuitability; for instance, if the arch required massive and expensive foundations to resist the thrust, even if these foundations could not be seen by the public. This demonstrates that good engineering design has an esoteric component only to be appreciated by professionals.
