Network Arch Bridge in Nepal

Two new network arch bridges are going to be constructed over Bagmati and Dhobikhola in Kathmandu. For the first time in Nepal, these state-of-art technology bridges have been planned over Bagmati River on the Maitighar-Tinkune road section and another over Dhobikhola at Bijuli Bazaar, Kathmandu.

According to the Kathmandu Valley Road Expansion Project, the previous four-lane bridges would be replaced by the new bridge at the Maitighar-Tinkune eight-lane road section.

Design of Steel Structure Lecture notes (pdf, free download)

I came across some free lecture notes for civil engineering students. These are hand-written notes. So, no copy-and-paste facilities.  I went through the notes to see what is inside and saw that it is good enough. I will add more lecture notes on the design of steel structure at the end of this post in coming days.
