Bridges are massive static structures that carry roads and railroads over rivers, canyons, and other obstacles. Different types of bridges are chosen depending on what they will carry, what they will cross, and the geological nature of Earth beneath them. river of love wallpaper. river live wallpaper. Often miles long and taking years to construct, bridges are triumphs of engineering over the environment the true wonders of the modern world.

bridge wallpapers. The evolution of engineering techniques has allowed bridges to span greater and greater distances. Stone bridges, often built by monks, became popular in medieval times, but could only be made so big without collapsing under their own weight. The first iron bridge constructed at Coalbrookdale in Shropshire, England, in 1779 led to many great iron and steel bridges in the 19th century. One of the first modern suspension bridges, New York’s Brooklyn Bridge of 1883, was considered an engineering masterpiece with a span of 1595 ft (486 m). Today’s longest suspension bridge, the Akashi Kaikyo in Japan, completed in 1998, is eight times longer at 2.4 miles (3.9 km).  we also have other european village image ready as lwp for you.

wallpaper bridge. From an engineering viewpoint, the purpose of a bridge is not just to span some physical obstacle, but to distribute forces (loads) evenly through a few key points in a structure using tension (pulling forces) and compression (pushing forces). With cables, girders, and arches, and materials such as reinforced concrete and steel, engineers seek to channel the weight of the bridge and its contents onto abutments (the supports at either end) and piers (the supports in the middle) resting on firm bedrock or caissons (reinforced boxes filled with concrete) sunk deep into softer ground. You can read more about how forces are balanced in structures in our article on how buildings work.

The Oudegracht, or “old canal”, runs through the center of Utrecht, the Netherlands. It starts in the southeast of the city. Here the Kromme Rijn (the original main bed of the Rhine river) and the Vaartse Rijn (a medieval canal reconnecting Utrecht to the newer main stream of the Rhine, the Lek) arrive to meet the original moat of the fortified town, and the Oudegracht goes from there into the center of town. Parts of the Oudegracht follow the original flow of the river Rhine, but there is some disagreement on what parts. The northern part is most likely an early canal (app. 1000) connecting the Rhine section to the river Vecht. we also have arch bridge ready as lwp too.

The southern part was started in 1122, after the water level of the Rhine in Utrecht dropped because of the new dam at Wijk bij Duurstede. The ground excavated was used to raise the sides of the canal, to reduce the chance of flooding. When the city’s system of locks was finished in 1275 the water level was constant, enabling the creation of permanently dry cellars and new quays at water level, hence the typical wharfs (Dutch: werven) below street level. Warehouses used to line the canal. Today many of these warehouses have been converted into restaurants and cafés.
