Innovative Bridge Design Handbook: Construction, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance, Second Edition, brings together the essentials of bridge engineering across design, assessment, research and construction. Written by an international group of experts, each chapter is divided into two parts: the first covers design issues, while the second presents current research into the innovative design approaches used across the world.
This new edition includes new topics such as foot bridges, new materials in bridge engineering and soil-foundation structure interaction. All chapters have been updated to include the latest concepts in design, construction, and maintenance to reduce project cost, increase structural safety, and maximize durability. Code and standard references have been updated.
- Completely revised and updated with the latest in bridge engineering and design
- Provides detailed design procedures for specific bridges with solved examples
- Presents structural analysis including numerical methods (FEM), dynamics, risk and reliability, and innovative structural typologies
