Gain Confidence in Modeling Techniques Used for Complicated Bridge StructuresBridge structures vary considerably in form, size, complexity, and importance. The methods for their computational analysis and design range from approximate to refined analyses, and rapidly improving computer technology has made the more refined and complex methods of ana
