  • Bridges

Steel as the main material for bridges is often associated with very large spans due to its favorable relationship between strength and weight. But even with small and medium spans of up to 60 m, steel combined with concrete as a composite bridge can lead to economically justified structures. Small bridges are used for crossings over two-lane urban roads with spans of up to 10 or 15 m, for example. Medium-span bridges cross highways and reach spans of about 40 m, for instance, but sometimes even 60 m. Based on hot-rolled steel sections, there are several composite solutions that are well known all over Europe. Multiple I-section composite decks and filler beam decks have been standard bridge designs for decades – the latter for more than 100 years.
