    The composite bridges with corrugated steel webs have excellent properties, such as lightness of girders, efficiency of introducing prestress forces, short construction period, optimum force distribution, good seismic performance, and aesthetics appearance etc., which have greatly promoted the application of such bridges. The objective of this paper is to provide and summarize important references related to the analysis, design and construction of composite bridges with corrugated steel webs. Subjects discussed in this review include (1) structural configuration and application; (2) shear behavior; (3) bending behavior; (4) torsional behavior; (5) patch loading resistance; (6) dynamic behavior; (7) long-term behaviors including fatigue and creep; (8) component connections; (9) analysis method and theory; (10) new concept application. The literature survey presented herein mainly focuses on papers written in English, Japanese, German and Chinese in relation to composite bridges with corrugated steel webs.
