Bridge Engineering by Weiwei Lin; Teruhiko YodaBridge Engineering: Classifications, Design Loading, and Analysis Methods begins with a clear and concise exposition of theory and practice of bridge engineering, design and planning, materials and construction, loads and load distribution, and deck systems. This is followed by chapters concerning applications for bridges, such as: Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Bridges, Steel Bridges, Truss Bridges, Arch Bridges, Cable Stayed Bridges, Suspension Bridges, Bridge Piers, and Bridge Substructures. In addition, the book addresses issues commonly found in inspection, monitoring, repair, strengthening, and replacement of bridge structures.

AASHTO Guide Specifications for LRFD Seismic Bridge Design (2nd Edition) with 2012, 2014 and 2015 Interim Revisions by AASHTOThis book covers seismic design for typical bridge types and applies to non-critical and non-essential bridges. It is approved as an alternate to the seismic provisions in the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. This differs from the current procedures in the LRFD Specifications in the use of displacement-based design procedures, instead of the traditional force-based R-Factor method. It includes detailed guidance and commentary on earthquake-resisting elements and systems, global design strategies, demand modeling, capacity calculation, and liquefaction effects. Capacity design procedures underpin the Guide Specifications’ methodology; includes prescriptive detailing for plastic hinging regions and design requirements for capacity protection of those elements that should not experience damage.
Included in this electronic edition are the 2012, 2014 and 2015 Interim Revisions. Following each chapter the Revisions are identified as well as linked throughout the entire book where available. See the "Interim Revisions" sections for a complete list of changes to each section. Show less
Steel Bridges by Manfred Hirt; Jean-Paul LebetThis English translation of the successful French edition presents the conception and design of steel and steel-concrete composite bridges, from simple beam bridges to cable supported structures. The book focuses primarily on road bridges, emphasizing the basis of their conception and the fundamentals that must be considered to assure structural safety and serviceability, as well as highlighting the necessary design checks. The principles are extended in later chapters to railway bridges as well as bridges for pedestrians and cyclists. Particular attention is paid to consideration of the dynamic performance.

Bridge Engineering by W. F. Chen (Editor); Lian Duan (Editor)Mitigating the effects of earthquakes is crucial to bridge design. With chapters culled from the best-selling Bridge Engineering Handbook, this volume sets forth the principles and applications of seismic design, from the necessary geotechnical and dynamic analysis background to seismic isolation and energy dissipation, active control, and retrofit technology. In-depth discussions contributed by bridge and earthquake engineers from around the world cover the types and effects of earthquake damage and structural performance criteria. The book also includes an overview of seismic design practices in Japan, including a study of the damage to highway bridges caused by the Hyogo-ken Nanbu earthquake and the changes in retrofit practices precipitated by that earthquake.

Theory and Design of Bridges by Petros P. XanthakosCovers current design techniques for both allowable stress and new load and resistance factor design (LRFD) approaches recommended by the forthcoming American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials draft specifications. Addresses the need for repair or replacement of 225,000 U.S. highway bridges as well as the need for 70,000 new bridges in the next 15 years.
