STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN CANTILEVER Consists of <STRUCTURAL_BEAM>s or trusses that project from <BRIDGE_PIER>s toward each other and, when joined directly or by a suspended connecting <STRUCTURAL_MEMBER>, form a deck span; cantilever. 3 IR [FACC, Annex B, BDC:2]  
STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN DECK Panel <BRIDGE> constructed without girder supports; deck. 4 IR [FACC, Annex B, BDC:3]  
STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN SLAB Efficient slab <STRUCTURE>s for shorter spans, up to 7,72 metres (25 feet). Multi-span slab <BRIDGE>s are normally continuous over intermediate supports with span lengths rarely exceeding 12,2 metres (40 feet). 18 IR [FACC, Annex B, BDC:4]  
STD

BRIDGE_DESIGN FLOATING <BRIDGE_SPAN>s constructed across <PONTOON>s or swimmer <VEHICLE>s that have been anchored for stability in <WATER_CURRENT>s; floating. 5 IR [FACC, Annex B, BDC:5]  
STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN GIRDER Consists of <STRUCTURAL_BEAM>s or girders assembled as single <BRIDGE_SPAN>s or combined into multiple <BRIDGE_SPAN>s with intermediate supports. 6 IR [FACC, Annex B, BDC:6]  
STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN STRINGER_BEAM Consists of steel stringers in standard rolled shapes in spans up to 27,43 metres (90 feet) and <STRUCTURAL_BEAM>s built-up with welded steel plate in the 18,3 to 36,6 metre (60 to 120 foot) span range. 20 IR [FACC, Annex B, BDC:7]  
STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN TRUSS Composed of trusses and typically used in long spans from 45,7 to 304,8 metres (150 to 1 000 feet) and above. 23 IR [FACC, Annex B, BDC:8]  
STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN SUSPENSION Fixed and consisting of either a roadway or a truss suspended from two or more <LOAD_CABLE>s that pass over <BRIDGE_TOWER>s and are anchored by backstays to a firm foundation; suspension. 21 IR [FACC, Annex B, BDC:9]  
STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN MLTRY_ARMOUR_VEH_LAUNCHED Conventional girder type <STRUCTURE> that is constructed of aluminum alloy; limited in length, generally less than 18,3 metres (60 feet); and designed to be transported, launched, and retrieved by an <ARMOURED_BRIDGE_LAUNCHER>; military armoured vehicle launched bridge. 8 IR [T5-210]  
STD
2005/06/07
BRIDGE_DESIGN MLTRY_HEAVY_ASSAULT A fixed military heavy assault <BRIDGE> designed for rapid emplacement and capable of spanning short gaps (for example: washouts, ravines, and/or similar <TERRAIN_OBSTACLE>s). 9 IR [T5-210]

In addition to the status and date information for each entry, a colour coding scheme highlights the database holding to which an entry belongs. The following highlight colours are used:

  • white - the entry is in the standard
  • yellow - the entry has been added to the register
  • pink - the entry has been submitted for inclusion in the register, but it is not approved
  • cyan - a deprecated entry that was originally either in the standard or was added to the register, but has since been deprecated

The following icons are used to identify items that have figures, modifications and/or clarification notes:

  • F n - has Figures and, if more than one figure, n figures
  • M - has Modifications
  • C - has Clarifications
