Example text

The project will reach its final form only at the construction stage. For this reason, it is worth mentioning that the designer should from the beginning give serious consideration to construction problems and provide, in certain cases, complete instructions as well as methods for construction. 2 General Considerations for the Design of Bridge Schemes Factually, the structural design scheme of the bridge presents a complex problem for the structural designer despite the presence of modern technology and advanced computer facilities.

This requires that the bridge contain a new achievement due to scientific research or a new invention. The design of a bridge always contains something new. Even if the project is worked using old examples and applying typical projects, the designer uses new contributions along with the known. Therefore, there is always a certain degree of novelty. A good designer or engineer should not only be familiar with previous designs but should also be updated with modern scientific research and benefit from that by using advanced technical sciences in the design as the project changes.

The analysis is applied to each component of the bridge and to the whole structure. Each part should be visualized first by the designer, sketched, analyzed, and checked for feasibility. Then it should be modified if necessary. In each case, the most beneficial alternative should be chosen. It is a very sensitive task because it is not easy to find immediate answers and the required solutions. The problem of making final choices could only be solved on the basis of general considerations and designer’s particular point of view, which is undoubtedly based on personal experience and knowledge as well as professional intuition.
