A global group of specialists has joined forces to provide the Bridge Engineering instruction manual. They deal with all facets-the making plans, layout, inspection, building, and upkeep of quite a few bridge structures-creating vital source for each bridge engineer. This distinct, finished reference presents the capability to study typical practices and continue abreast of latest advancements and state of the art practices. Comprising sixty seven chapters in seven sections, the authors present:Fundamentals: presents the fundamental suggestions and conception of bridge engineeringSuperstructure layout: Discusses every kind of bridgesSubstructure layout: Addresses columns, piers, abutments, and foundationsSeismic layout: offers the most recent in seismic bridge designConstruction and upkeep: specializes in the sensible problems with bridge structuresSpecial issues: bargains new and significant details and exact solutionsWorldwide perform: Summarizes bridge engineering practices round the world.Discover nearly all you must learn about any form of bridge:Reinforced, Segmental, and Prestressed ConcreteSteel beam and plate girderSteel field girderOrthotropic deckHorizontally curvedTrussArchSuspensionCable-stayedTimberMovableFloatingRailroadSpecial recognition is given to rehabilitation, retrofit, and upkeep, and the Bridge Engineering guide deals over 1,600 tables, charts, and illustrations in ready-to-use layout. An abundance of worked-out examples provide readers step by step layout methods and the part on around the world perform presents a wide and invaluable point of view at the "big photo" of bridge engineering.

Sample text

Because technical requirements may be accomplished using alternatives, consideration should always be given to additional guarantees for safety. Never compromise the safety of the passengers. Essential requirements naturally should have great importance, but they are basically satisfied by accepted clearance. Also, additional consideration must be given to issues other than elementary demands in order to make traffic flow efficiently. Note that the height of the bridge and the elevation of the roadway must be determined at an early stage, because they have influence on the traffic flow.

Take, for example, steel structures: consideration should be given to quantity of steel and on top of that special attention must be given to modern industrial practices in production which in its turn may lead to conveniences in erection resulting from heavy construction with lower cost. During comparisons of various projects, analysis of their economic criteria may reveal principles of expedience that can be applied to the project under consideration. Construction requirements are connected to economic constraints because, when the amount of material is small, the work is simple and the time required is shorter.

Note, the architecture of bridges should not contradict either as a whole or in details the purpose of the structure. The designer’s ideas should be compatible with the technical concept, surrounding conditions and environment (for example, London Tower Bridge). © 2000 by CRC Press LLC It is necessary to be technically literate. Moreover, it is not enough just to design the external view of the bridge. Bridges satisfying demands and requirements of modern engineering requests and properly designed will achieve recognition and will deserve worldwide acknowledgment and credit.
