Beam bridges
Beam bridges are generally considered the simplest form of bridge. How simple? When cavemen laid logs over streams to cross them, they were building the earliest beam bridges. These basic bridges typically span relatively short distances.

What is the strongest material used for bridge building?

Steel is a useful bridge material because of its high strength in both compression and tension. Steel is also a ductile material, meaning that it can be bent or shaped easily into different forms. Steel sounds like the perfect material, but, steel is also expensive. Concrete is another important material.
