e-mosty March 2019 Long Span and Multiple Span Bridges - Page 3

Dear Readers First article of this issue brings an overview of design of the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge which is a suspension bridge under construction in Turkey. When complete it is going to be the longest suspension bridge in the world. Next part of the magazine focuses on the Chacao Bridge in Chile. It is a multi-span suspension bridge under construction. We have prepared a general overview of the project. It is followed by an article written by Alvaro F. Alrruiz Fajuri describing design of the bridge accompanied by drawings and a photo gallery. Design and Construction of the Maputo – Katembe Suspension Bridge in Africa is briefly described by Konstantinos Papanikolaou. The article is also accompanied by drawings and a photo gallery. Last article of this issue was written by David Collings. He provides an overview of multi-span suspension bridges. We agreed with Lawrence Shackman that we will continue in our cooperation - we are happy to provide continuous support to his initiative “Bridge to the Future to help beat Cancer”. We also go on with supporting Bridges to Prosperity and Bridging the Gap Africa. And we are a medial partner of the ARCH 2019 – 9 th Conference on Arch Bridges. I am happy to announce that the company Rúbrica will be our partner in 2019 again. Together with ARUP, COWI and BERD, four companies have already confirmed partnership for 2019. Thank you all very much for your support. Let me announce that first Issue of our new magazine e-maritime will be published on 30 March on www.e-maritime.cz. It will focus on specialized vessels. The magazine is with open access, similarly to e-mosty, and you can also subscribe here. We have established separate LinkedIn pages for both magazines, and we invite you to follow us. We will mostly share information on the content of the magazines, editorial plan, details of the projects and articles, and their photos. We will also promote some specific projects (conferences, books, charities etc.). I would very much like to thank all people and companies who have helped me prepare this issue, to all the authors and also to our partners. Magdaléna Sobotková 1/2019
