This book contains the invited contributions to the 1993 Henderson Colloquium organised by the British Group of IABSE (International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering). It provides an international review of new techniques of designing and constructing joint-free bridges - an approach which is rapidly being developed and used in many parts of the world.
