Planning, calculation, construction and monitoring Above-ground pipeline engineering using the example of bridge-borne pipelines

Bridge-borne pipelines are essential components of municipal supply and disposal systems, necessary for the above-ground crossing of watercourses, rail routes, etc., and generally easier and cheaper to construct than underground crossings.

Many bridge operators are wary of bridge-borne pipelines, however, a situation which may be regarded, on the basis of the available experience in the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of both small and large bridge-borne pipelines, as unfounded. Bridge-borne pipelines necessitate adherence to special planning, construction and supervision requirements; these are compiled in this article.
