John Monash: Engineering enterprise prior to WW1.

Six-span proposal for the Monier arch bridge at Fyansford.

Drawing shows a large central span with three smaller arches on the left approach and two on the right. The smaller arches have the same rise as the central arch. The spandrels are solid and contain earth fill, but have recessed panels imitating jack arches. The five piers are massive. The right abutment block is supported on piles.

Undated drawing showing an early proposal for the Monier arch bridge at Fyansford. Half elevation and half longitudinal cross-section. River span 90 feet (27.4m), side spans 32 ft.(9.8m). Note that the spandrels have recessed panels in their walls, not clear openings.
