Bridges Explained

In this book, Trevor Yorke utilizes diagrams, drawings, and photographs to explain the basic principles of bridge construction and style. The book is divided into five sections, starting with a general background, followed by discussions on arched bridges, other later forms of bridges, viaducts and aqueducts, and finally, a quick reference guide with a list of bridges to visit.

Bridges serve as important means of communication and transportation while also possessing aesthetic and environmental value. Their graceful and spectacular design can evoke a range of emotions. However, visitor centres are uncommon, and simple answers to common questions regarding their construction, function and stability are not often provided to the public.
