Metal bridges in modern life
Metallic bridges hold great importance in modern life, especially within large cities, and can be of various types. They can be tracked as to their mode of use and can also be categorized as to their architectural and structural characteristics.
Regardless of the type of metal bridge being manufactured, it is essential that you use quality materials in your production. In addition, an experienced engineer leading the metal bridge design is extremely important to avoid any problems in the final product. Therefore, it is necessary, also a company with experience in steel processing, that is where Viga comes in, with more than 4 decades of experience in this area.
The commonly used road metal bridges model is the one that has stringers in type I welded profiles, joining the concrete track by means of shear connectors. In this way, mixed beams of very high efficiency are formed, because in the lower flap there is an excellent tensile strength of the steel, and in the upper one, the concrete assists in the compressed part of the beams. It is usual for the lower flap to be larger than the upper flap.
