THE BRIDGE BUILDER
An old man going a lone highwayCame at the evening cold and grayTo a chasm vast and deep and wide.The old man crossed in the twilight dim;The sullen stream had no fears for him.But he turned when safe on the other sideAnd built a bridge to span the tide.“Old man,”said a fellow pilgrim near,“You are wasting your time with building here.You never again will pass this
way-
Your journey will end with the closing day.You have crossed the chasm deep and wide,Why build you this bridge at eventide?”The builder lifted his old gray head.“Good friend, in the way that I’ve come,” he said,“There followeth after me todayA youth whose feet must pass this way.This stream which has been as naught to meTo the fair-haired youth might a pitfall be.He, too, must cross in the twilight dim.Good friend, I’m building the bridge for him.”Will Allen Dromgoole
 
Preface
This book has been written with the intention of describing the fundamen-tal structural behavior of the most commonly used prestressed concretebridges. The authors believe the contents of this book will be especiallyuseful to engineers having little or no previous experience in the design of prestressed concrete bridges as well as those whose practice includes anoccasional bridge design.The first chapter is devoted to basic information and serves as a founda-tion for subsequent chapters.Chapter 2 is devoted to girder bridges. The authors elected to use thisname over “stringer bridge” in view of the fact that the term “stringer” isnot applied to beams of reinforced or prestressed concrete in the StandardSpecifications for Highway Bridges which is published by the AmericanAssociation of State Highway and Transportation Officials. This form of concrete bridge has been the type most commonly used in the UnitedStates. Its use has been widespread and is expected to continue. Methods
of analysis for girder bridges which have been in use in Europe for a number
of years are presented in this chapter. These methods have not been
