20 years of Bridge Structures

This year, Bridge Structures enters its 20th anniversary! Spanning two decades, Bridge Structures has been a host to a myriad of innovations and breakthroughs in bridge engineering. Bridge Structures has published research that has changed how we look at bridge modeling, strength of materials or paved the way for advancement in construction techniques, and we have shined a spotlight on matters affecting transportation around the world, with a focuson public safety. This timeline traces its path from the very first issue to its 20th anniversary, with the opportunity to read some of the important papers published by Bridge Structures over the last 20 years.
