much greater stiffness than the suspension bridge, so that deformations of the deck under live loads are reduced; can be constructed by cantilevering out from the tower the cables act both as temporary and permanent supports to the bridge deck; for a symmetrical bridge (i.e. spans on either side of the tower are the same)..
Deck - supported roadway on a bridge. Deform - to change shape. Diversion Channel - a bypass created to divert water around a dam so that construction can take place. Dome - a curved roof enclosing a circular space; a three-dimensional arch. Downstream Face - the side of the dam that is not against the water. Dynamite..

2.3.2 Steel Deck Diaphragms with no Concrete Fill. There exists a substantial amount of diaphragm research on light gauge steel decking, dating back to the 1950's. Steel deck is largely used for its many advantages, including light weight, low cost, and ease of installation, among others. The initial use of steel deck was to..

Without this protection, timber decks can wear rapidly, resulting in accelerated deterioration and reduced structural capacity. Wearing surfaces vary in material and configuration and are classified as full or partial depending on the extent of deck coverage (Figure 11-1). A full wearing surface covers the entire bridge deck and..
