Bridges - an Introduction
How do bridges work?
Learn the science and design behind the different types of bridges that have evolved over time.
Professor, Electronics and Communication
In this class, we'll get to know the bridges we so often take for granted (we literally walk and drive all over them), as well as the designs that make them possible. We'll look at the fundamental principles of bridge engineering, the different types and how we attempt to thwart the physical forces and natural phenomena that perpetually threaten to destroy the world's bridges.
Let's get right down to the basics.
