  • This paper briefly introduces the present situation of concrete filled steel tube (CFST) arch bridges in China. More than 200 CFST arch bridges were investigated and analyzed based on the factors of type, span, erection method, geometric parameters, and material. Some key issues in design calculation were presented, such as check of strength, calculation of section stiffness, and joint fatigue strength. It will provide a comprehensive reference of CFST arch bridges for the bridge designers and builders. © 2009 ASCE.
