Bridge Design

This site is a somewhat complex, by this I mean that there are many links to different aspects of bridges and bridge design. The site does offer much information about the history and design and design techniques. The website offers many links to different sections to the site. There are different links for the variety of users and their comprehension and understanding of the material. The links vary in levels, by this I mean there is one titled basic notes about bridges, to other notes about bridges to detailed notes about bridges. This gives the user the choice to look up what they want without having the feeling of being overwhelmed by the information presented to the user. Within this first set of links there is another set that is more specified, for example Types of bridges and how they work Building bridges Parts for bridges Materials for bridges Basic rules Forces and what they do Stresses and strains And within this set of links there is yet another set of links and a basic tutorial about the topic at hand. These links are more of pictures and examples to help the user better understand the material. I think that this site is of great use to those thinking of a career in Civil Engineering. Links to different aspects of bridges, bridge design bridge history and design techniques.
