'Bridge Management' is a comprehensive, single volume book for professionals and postgraduates on bridge management. It focuses on inspection, assessment, testing, evaluation, repair, as well as financial aspects such as whole life costing. Highly illustrated with colour, and including examples of practice and techniques drawn from around the world, the book will be invaluable to the bridge engineer.View full description
