Types of Bridges and their Suitability:

Bridging is a specialized filed of engineering science. It has very high degree of sill and expertise in this field, gathered from bridging its mighty rivers. The types of superstructure commonly adopted and the site conditions for which they are suitable are indicated in Table.
