Stressed Ribbon Bridge

« Back to Glossary Index

A stressed ribbon bridge is a type of bridge that uses a thin, pre-stressed concrete slab as the main load-bearing element. The slab is supported by cables or tendons anchored to the bridge’s foundations. The name “stressed ribbon” comes from the appearance of the bridge, which often looks like a ribbon or a band stretched across the space it spans.

This type of bridge is often used in areas where traditional bridges would be too heavy or where the construction of a significant structure is impossible.
