9780393731361: Bridges

Bridges are such ubiquitous features of the built environment that we cross most of them barely acknowledging their presence. Certain bridges, however, command attention: for their utility facilitating travel from here to there; for their size, setting, beauty, or historical associations. Ordinary or spellbinding, every bridge is a response to a problem-the spanning of a river or other obstacle, solved more or less elegantly. This visual sourcebook surveys American bridges from coast to coast in terms of four fundamental structural types (beam, arch, truss, and suspension) and the special category of movable bridges (swing, lift, and bascule) showing how similar structural ideas have been addressed by different designers, refined over time, and rendered in various building materials. A special feature is "A Call for Preservation" of the American bridge engineering heritage by Eric DeLony, formerly chief of the Historic American Engineering Record, National Park Service.

Descrizione libro Norton. 1 Book & CD-ROM(s), 2007. hard. Condizione libro: New. Bridges are such ubiquitous features of the built environment that we rarely notice them, unless they are particularly large, beautiful, or historically significant. Yet every bridge is a response to an obstacle, and some are so elegantly engineered that they have become prototypes for others. This book surveys nearly a thousand American bridges from coast to coast in terms of four basic structural types (beam, arch, truss, and suspension) and the special category of movable bridges (swing, lift, and bascule), showing how similar structural ideas have been addressed by different designers, refined over time, and rendered in various building materials. Drawn from the holdings of the Library of Congress, this entry in the Visual Sourcebook series is packed with black and white photos, drawings, and diagrams, captioned and keyed to their Library of Congress call numbers. It includes a CD-ROM with downloadable TIFF files of the illustrations, and also provides links to the library's searchable online catalogues, including the hundreds of thousands of photos, measured drawings, and data files in the Historic American Buildings Survey and the Historic American Engineering Record. "Equally worth recommending to those who build and maintain bridges and to readers only interested in the history of engineering. Full of interesting stories . [it offers] a rich picture of past years in the history of bridge-building in America."—Geophysics 383. Codice libro della libreria 63195
