By Jean-Paul Kurtz

I'm happy to offer a piece which marks a milestone within the background of public works and, extra accurately, in that of everlasting structures―a finished dictionary of Civil Engineering phrases. because the starting of time, guy has continually attempted to discover a way to transparent the hindrances which nature erected to displace him. With the 1st tree trunk thrown throughout a river, guy sought to enhance the crossing constitution. After the discovery of the wheel, and to meet his thirst for conquest (Roman ways), and luxury (aqueducts), guy equipped bridges that turned a preremptory necessity to maneuver speedy. therefore, guy began to construct wood and masonry works. With the passing centuries, the developers grew to become masters within the paintings of establishing masonry works. Then got here the economic Revolution and the appearance of the metal (1864), which was once heavily via the discovery of the bolstered concrete (1855). the necessity for railways and enhancing the line community encouraged nice works of crossing resembling viaducts and tunnels. The growth of the railway community and the advance of the automobile required the development of more and more new constructions. This phenomenon maintains at the present time with enormous quantities of buildings equipped every year in the course of the international.
