How to Read Bridges is a practical introduction to looking at the structure and purpose of bridges and a guide to reading the structural clues embedded in every bridge which allows you to appreciate their variety and ingenuity.

Small enough to carry in your pocket and serious enough to provide real answers, this comprehensive guide analyses and explores all types of bridges from around the world from the first millennium to the present day and features the Brooklyn Bridge, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Ponte Vecchio, Millau Viaduct and Pont des Arts. The book also explores fundamental concepts of bridge design, key materials and engineering techniques whilst providing an accessible visual guide with intelligent text, using detailed illustrations and cross-sections of technical features.
