ASI - Steel in infrastructureSteel promotes innovation . Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all the primary construction products. In high-strength form, steel not only provides all the advantages of reduced weight and increased strength that are needed for infrastructure projects, it also exhibits superior toughness.
ASI Corporate. Home. Resources. eLibrary. Steel-concrete composite bridge design guide. Steel-concrete composite bridges provide an efficient and cost-effective form of bridge construction. By utilising the tensile strength of steel in the main girder and the compressive strength of concrete in the slab, the bending resistance of the combined materials is greatly increased and larger spans are made possible.Two types of composite bridge ASI - Steel for pedestrian bridgesThe use of steel for pedestrian bridges has increased dramatically, driven in part by the architectural flexibility to create extraordinary structures. These bridges can provide both pedestrians and cyclists with amenity and, at the same time, create awe-inspiring structural sculptures. Pedestrian bridges utilising structural steel can span significant distances and be constructed with minimum disruption to often
