Bridge Engineering Handbook

An international team of experts has joined forces to produce the "Bridge Engineering Handbook". They address all facets - the planning, design, inspection, construction, and maintenance of a variety of bridge structures - creating a must-have resource for every bridge engineer.This unique, comprehensive reference provides the means to review standard practices and keep abreast of new developments and state-of-the-art practices. Comprising 67 chapters in seven sections, the authors present: Fundamentals: Provides the basic concepts and theory of bridge engineering; Superstructure Design: Discusses all types of bridges; Substructure Design: Addresses columns, piers, abutments, and foundations; Seismic Design: Presents the latest in seismic bridge design; Construction and Maintenance: Focuses on the practical issues of bridge structures; Special Topics: Offers new and important information and unique solutions; and Worldwide Practice: Summarizes bridge engineering practices around the world.You can discover virtually all you need to know about any type of bridge: Reinforced, Segmental, and Prestressed Concrete Steel beam and plate girder, Steel box girder, Orthotropic deck, Horizontally curved Truss, Arch Suspension, Cable-stayed Timber, and Movable Floating Railroad. Special attention is given to rehabilitation, retrofit, and maintenance, and the "Bridge Engineering Handbook" offers over 1,600 tables, charts, and illustrations in ready-to-use format. An abundance of worked-out examples give readers step-by-step design procedures and the section on Worldwide Practice provides a broad and valuable perspective on the 'big picture' of bridge engineering.

Winner of a Choice magazine's Outstanding Academic Title award, January 2001 "All elements of bridge engineering and design are addressed in this weighty handbook which is designed to be a state-of-the-art reference work for the industry in the 21st century. Editors Wai-Fah Chen and Lian Duan have invited contributions from bridge engineers around the world, and the list of authors reads like a 'who's who' of structural engineering." --Bridge Design & Engineering, 4th Quarter 2000, No. 21 "first handbook dedicated to bridge engineeringothers cover some of the same ground but not in the breadth and scope of this handbookany academic or technical library supporting an engineering department should have this handbook." --W. C. Schnobrich, CHOICE, May 2000
