Standard Specifications and Code of Practice for Road Bridges (Loads and Stresses) - IRC: 6-2014

The brief history of the Bridge Code given in the Introduction to Section I "General Features of Design" generally applies to Section 1 1 also. The draft of Section 1 1 for "Loads and Stresses", as discussed at Jaipur Session of the Indian Roads Congress in 1 946, was considered further in a number of meetings of the Bridges Committee for finalisation. In the years 1957 and 1958, the work of finalising the draft was pushed on vigorously by the Bridges Committee.
