Summary: Extradosed bridges can be an elegant and economical solution for bridges with spans ranging between 100 and 250m. This novel type of cable-supported bridges has become quite successful in recent years first in Japan and then all over the world. Experienced members of the international bridge community have come together in Working Commission 3 of IABSE to share their knowledge and to prepare a SED which provides the reader with guidance and practical advice that was not available so far. This book contains useful information regarding conceptual and structural design, analysis, construction, cost and typical properties of Extradosed Bridges. Authors of this SED are: Mike Schlaich (Editor), Andreas Apitz (Co-ordinator), Thierry Duclos, Akio Kasuga, Jose Romo Martin, Serge Montens, Chithambaram Sankaralingam and Juan Sobrino. This SED was prepared along with above Chapter Authors and several other contributors including Nirmalya Bandyopadhyay, Don Bergman, Alok Bhowmick, Xu Dong, Zhao Liu, Guido Morgenthal, Robin Sham, Jose Turmo and Edo Vonk.
