Summary

Within the subject students will be acquainted with the historical development of bridges, with methods of calculation, design and assessment of concrete bridges, including structural design and static solution, principles of reinforcement and drawing documentation. By passing of this subject the students gain knowledge about static action and realization of bridges - slab bridges, beam bridges, arched bridges, suspension bridges, cable-stayed bridges even bridges made of prefabricated elements and footbridges for pedestrians.
