Abstract:

This Special Report contains the proceedings of a workshop on systems building for bridges, held May 17-19, 1971. The first papers are those presented at the introductory session; they review the current status of bridge building, materials, and systems building. Presented next are the summary reports of the chairmen of the 3 working sessions and of the chairmen of each of the 4 groups into which the sessions were divided. The report concludes with comments by participants during an informal discussion at the final workshop session. Participating in the workshop were nearly 50 representatives of industry, government, and education and research institutions. They explored in depth the advantages and limitations of a systems approach to bridge building, the ramifications of adopting such an approach, and the problems anticipated.
