Reabilitação e Reforço de Pontes Metálicas Centenárias Rodoviárias em Portugal

Steel bridges started to be built in the mid nineteenth century in Portugal. Numerous bridges of different types and different materials (depending on the time of its construction) were built. The willing of having constantly larger spans changed the structural type of bridges. The evolution of materials made this willing possible.
