Format: Paperback
Everyone uses bridges in their day to day lives. But what do we really know about them? How and when were these bridges built? What exactly does a particular part do? And, most importantly, why don't they fall down? `Bridges Explained' answers these and many more questions, using illustrations, diagrams and photographs to explain the basic principals and styles of bridges helping the reader to recognise how they work and from what period they date. The book is divided into four sections. The first gives the background to the subject; the second describes arched bridges; the third explains other forms of bridges and investigates viaducts and aqueducts. The fourth section is a quick reference guide with a list of bridges to visit and a glossary to explain any unfamiliar terms. For the average lay reader like me the book proved fascinating and has made me look at bridges in a whole new light.

Viaducts - my passion! Lovely old back and white and sepia photographs of feats of incredible Victorian engineering and the history of the men who designed and built them.

Well researched, explained and presented, with lots of photos and drawings. He uses basic physics/materials science with no maths. A fascinating book.
