Excerpt from Types and Details of Bridge Construction, Vol. 2: Part II. Plate Girders, Examples of Constructed Railroad and Highways Spans It is the purpose to present in Types and Details of Bridge Constrtcction, the development of advanced practice and its principal details, to illustrate structures adapted to different conditions, to show the progress from primitive and obsolete construction to the most recent designs in accordance with latest requirements and improved manufacturing facilities, and to record interesting, important, and typical examples so that their principal data are easily accessible. The first consideration in the selection and preparation of data has been to secure examples fully covering the range of dimensions, capacities, and types for the different conditions and requirements under which plate girders are used for bridge work, to describe them concisely, and to clearly present any special or important features. Care has also been taken to give many parallel examples of the most important classes of plate girders, so as to show the differences and similarities of independent designers for corresponding service as well as the features due to different requirements. Examples of early work are given to show the development of designs corresponding with the growth of traffic, the improvement of analytical and mathematical operations, the change from wrought iron to steel, and the great development of bridge-shop and rolling-mill practice. Still other examples of curious or absurd girders show the ingenuity or ignorance of the builder, or the peculiar conditions sometimes encountered. The examples presented have been selected because of their interest, and not necessarily because they are approved as models; the particular structures described may or may not be considered as in accordance with good practice. Criticism, in general, even when obvious, is avoided. The presentation of any detail does not necessarily imply that it is endorsed, but merely that it is considered typical or interesting as an example of actual construction. The book is arranged in parts, each dealing separately and completely with a distinct portion of the subject.
