Up-to-date coverage of bridge design and analysis-- revised to reflect the fifth edition of the AASHTO LRFD specifications: Design of Highway Bridges, Second Edition offers detailed coverage of engineering basics for the design of short- and medium-span bridges. Based on the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, it is an excellent engineering resource. This updated edition features: Expanded coverage of structural analysis, including axle and lane loads, along with new numerical analytic methods and approaches + Dozens of worked problems, primarily in Customary U.S. units, that allow techniques to be applied to real-world problems and design specifications + Revised AASHTO steel bridge design guidelines that reflect the simplified approach for plate girder bridges + The latest information on concrete bridges, including new minimum reinforcement requirements, and unbonded tendon stress at ultimate and losses for prestressed concrete girders + Information on key bridge types, selection principles, and aesthetic issues +  Problems and selected references for further study + And more. From gaining quick familiarity with the AASHTO LRFD specifications to seeking broader guidance on highway bridge design—this is the one-stop, ready reference that puts information at your fingertips.
