RE: design of rcc arch bridge & Robert Maillart

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
    I would suggest Billington's books on Robert Maillart's work.  Robert Maillart was a swiss bridge designer who made some of the most beautiful bridges ( in fact RC arch bridges) you can imagine.
    There are also some resources in the WEB about Maillart himself where you can find pictures of his bridges.
 
    Which brings back to my mind a thread thread that went on in this list not long ago under the subject: "Structural Engineering as an Art" (with a wonderful conclusion by Dennis Wish I must say).  Robert Maillart was the kind of man that privileges the design over the calculi and achieves to build an awesome masterpiece.
