How to use "Abutment" in context?

When considering the design of a bridge, one of the key aspects to be considered is the abutment. An abutment is the location on one side of a bridge where the bridge meets the supporting wall or pier. The design of the abutment is critical to the overall stability and performance of the bridge. In general, the abutment will consist of two components: a abutment pier and an abutment wall.

The abutment pier is the vertical structure that directly supports the bridge. The abutment pier is typically constructed out of reinforced concrete, and is typically asymmetrical in shape.
