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 + Worldwide Practice: Summarizes bridge engineering practices around the world.

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 + 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.
