It is devoted to bridges that are built by incremental launching methods, using prestressed composite materials. It integrates the static, aesthetic, and economic aspects of construction techniques for building these state-of-the-art structures. Bridge launching is a comprehensive handbook, offering explanations of both the theoretical and technological aspects of the construction process. Both beam bridges and arch bridges are thoroughly analysed,and special theories aimed at optimising static aspects, as well as local phenomena, are developed.
