Bridges are important elements of modern civilizations. They enhance a nation's economic growth and help raise the standard of living of its inhabitants by facilitating the efficient transport of people, goods, and services. In times of natural or human-made calamities, bridges become essential lifelines for disaster relief and emergency evacuation. Depending on the locations, terrain conditions, material availability, required span lengths, and budgetary considerations, a variety of bridge forms can be considered. For spans that exceed 150 meters, the bridge form used most often is the cable-supported bridge system.
