This manual provides detailed technical data on the classification (analysis) and design of bridges. It is NOT intended to replace civilian classification or analysis codes and procedures and should NOT be used for civilian construction or classification. Engineer officers should note that the methods shown in this manual are for conservative classification and design. Qualified engineers also might use appropriate civilian methods for military classification and design.
Appendix A contains an English-to-metric measurement conversion chart.
