... accomplishments in bridge building was the Menai Strait Bridge designed by Thomas Telford and constructed in 1826 ( FIG. 1.7 ). The structure is entirely made of wrought-iron bars connected to form a chain for the suspension bridge. At the time, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world at 1000 feet...

... of the bridge section. The maximum pore size was 800 μm on the surface and 500 μm in the center. The typical pore fraction was 3 to 4%. In this case, the sand casting process may not be most ideal process because of the potential for rapid crack propagation across the coarse structure, compounded by the large...
