Stolma Bridge
The Stolma Bridge
Stolma Bridge
(Norwegian: Stolmabrua) is a road bridge over the Stolmasundet strait in Austevoll
Austevoll
municipality, Hordaland
Hordaland
county, Norway. It connects the islands of Stolmen
Stolmen
and Selbjørn. The bridge is 467 metres (1,532 ft) long and has three spans, the largest of which is 301 metres (988 ft). The construction cost was US$15.3 million.[1] The bridge was opened for traffic 14 November 1998 and is part of County Road 151. The main span was the world's longest cantilever box-girder span until it was surpassed by the Shibanpo Second Yangtze River Bridge in China.[2][3][4] Bridge design[edit] The bridge is a cantilevered prestressed concrete box girder bridge using low density concrete, with a vertical clearance of 30 metres (98 ft)

Geographic Coordinate System
A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system used in geography that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols.[n 1] The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position, and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position

Prestressed Concrete
Prestressed concrete
Prestressed concrete
is a form of concrete used in construction which is "pre-stressed" by being placed under compression prior to supporting any loads beyond its own dead weight.[1][2]:3–5 [3] This compression is produced by the tensioning of high-strength "tendons" located within or adjacent to the concrete volume, and is done to improve the performance of the concrete in service.[4] Tendons may consist of single wires, multi-wire strands or threaded bars, and are most commonly made from high-tensile steels, carbon fiber or aramid fiber.[1]:52–59 The essence of prestressed concrete is that once the initial compression has been applied, the resulting material has the characteristics of high-strength concrete when subject to any subsequent compression forces, and of ductile high-strength steel when subject to tension forces

Strait
A strait is a naturally formed, narrow, typically navigable waterway that connects two larger bodies of water. Most commonly it is a channel of water that lies between two land masses. Some straits are not navigable, for example because they are too shallow, or because of an unnavigable reef or archipelago.Contents1 Terminology 2 Comparisons 3 Navigational (legal) regime 4 See also 5 References 6 External linksTerminology[edit] The terms channel, pass or passage, can be synonymous and used interchangeably with strait, although each is sometimes differentiated with varying senses.

Structure Gauge
The structure gauge, also called the minimum clearance outline, is the minimum height and width of tunnels and bridges as well as the minimum height and width of the doors that allow a rail siding access into a warehouse. In addition, the term may apply to the minimum distance to railway platforms (passenger or freight), buildings, electrical equipment boxes, railway signal equipment, third rails or to supports for overhead lines from the track. The width of a narrow cut can also affect the maximum loading gauge. The difference between the structure gauge and the loading gauge is called the "clearance"

Box-girder Bridge
A box girder bridge is a bridge in which the main beams comprise girders in the shape of a hollow box. The box girder normally comprises either prestressed concrete, structural steel, or a composite of steel and reinforced concrete. The box is typically rectangular or trapezoidal in cross-section. Box girder bridges are commonly used for highway flyovers and for modern elevated structures of light rail transport

Cantilever Bridge
A cantilever bridge is a bridge built using cantilevers, structures that project horizontally into space, supported on only one end. For small footbridges, the cantilevers may be simple beams; however, large cantilever bridges designed to handle road or rail traffic use trusses built from structural steel, or box girders built from prestressed concrete. The steel truss cantilever bridge was a major engineering breakthrough when first put into practice, as it can span distances of over 1,500 feet (460 m), and can be more easily constructed at difficult crossings by virtue of using little or no falsework.Contents1 Origins 2 Function 3 Construction methods 4 List by length 5 Examples 6 References 7 External linksOrigins[edit] Engineers in the nineteenth century understood that a bridge that was continuous across multiple supports would distribute the loads among them
