Part of the Structural Integrity book series (STIN, volume 11)


Examples of solutions for arch bridges recently developed in Poland are presented. The content of the paper was limited to two issues. First: Construction of spans of concrete arched bridges from various types of prefabricated elements. Second: Construction of steel or hybrid arch bridges in which the arches were made of cold bended steel sections. The presented solutions are characterized by low material consumption and low construction costs.
