What is the difference between girder and beam?Explain with an example?

Give me an answer related to bridges in detail so everyone can understand and make use of it

The main difference betweengirder and a beam is the size of the component. In general, workers in theconstruction industry refer to large beams as girders. ... If itis the chief horizontal support in a structure, it isgirder, not a beam. If it is one of the smaller structural supports, it isbeam.
