A Review of Two Codes For The Design of Pedestrian Bridges

September 12, 2019

Bridge Engineering is international, but while the laws of equilibrium do not change from country to country, the practices to ensure that bridges satisfy those laws can vary widely, reflecting the position taken by the members of code writing committees.

In preparing this review, the objective has not been to provide a summary of design practices but to provide a basis for the preparation of a common document by signaling the areas of agreement and, more importantly, the areas of disagreement, at the level of the basic engineering, for future code writing bodies.
