Bridge Terminology

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Listers,

What is common terminology (for bridges) for the girder beams that support the deck beams(?) (running parallel to the roadway) and rest directly on top of the piles. What is the aforementioned deck beam(floor beam/joist) typically called?


Just curious,
Rand
