  • Contents

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 bridgesSubstructure Design: Addresses columns, piers, abutments, and foundations Seismic Design: Presents the latest in seismic bridge designConstruction and Maintenance: Focuses on the practical issues of bridge structuresSpecial Topics: Offers new and important information and unique solutionsWorldwide Practice: Summarizes bridge engineering practices around the world.Discover virtually all you need to know about any type of bridge:Reinforced, Segmental, and Prestressed ConcreteSteel beam and plate girderSteel box girderOrthotropic deckHorizontally curvedTrussArchSuspensionCable-stayedTimberMovableFloatingRailroadSpecial 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.
