Definitions and Meaning of abutment in English
- a masonry support that touches and directly receives thrust or pressure of an arch or bridge.
- point of contact between two objects or parts.
An abutment is the substructure at the ends of a bridge span or dam supporting its superstructure. Single-span bridges have abutments at each end which provide vertical and lateral support for the span, as well as acting as retaining walls to resist lateral movement of the earthen fill of the bridge approach. Multi-span bridges require piers to support ends of spans unsupported by abutments. Dam abutments are generally the sides of a valley or gorge, but may be artificial in order to support arch dams such as Kurobe Dam in Japan.Also see "Abutment" on Wikipedia
