Descrizione articolo


Excerpt from The Forth Bridge

The central connecting girder consists of a top compression member, polygonal in form, and a straight bottom or tension member, with eight sets of vertical cross-bracings to each side, consisting of struts and ties, the struts being, as in the canti levers, provided with diagonal wind-bracings. The top members are also connected by sixteen sets Of diagonal horizontal wind - bracings. From the points Of intersection of struts -~and ties a vertical lattice tie is brought down to carry the bottom member midway between junctions. The bottom members are connected by solid plate girders going right across - these carrying the rail troughs; and they are further stiffened by diagonal T bracings and by the solid floor Of buckle plates.
