This work discusses the classification of bridge structures and their models. Examples of hybrid models are also indicated in the case of homogeneous and mixed structures. Where hybrid design and model cases are presented, an algorithm for the analysis of contact interactions between subsystems is provided. ; The soil and shell structure is adopted as an example of analyses, where in its characteristic feature, differentiating it from classic bridges, is the large influence of both the soil backfill and the road surface as load-bearing elements of the structure. There are two structural subsystems present in the model of the soil-shell structure: a corrugated sheet coating and a soil backfill with a surface. The interaction between them is modeled as a contact interaction, i.e. forces with a direction normal and tangent to the line of the circumferential band of the shell. ; The paper presents an algorithm of their analysis, resulting from the outcomes of tests with the use of strain gauges, with the load being a vehicle changing its position. The advantage of the algorithm is that it takes into account the actual physical properties of the soil in the backfill layers and the contact layer of the coating with the soil. Direct contact force measurements along the entire length of the circumferential strip are very difficult. In practice, pressure gauges are used to determine normal interactions.
