    Over 140 experts, 14 countries, and 89 chapters are represented in the second edition of the Bridge Engineering Handbook . This extensive collection highlights bridge engineering specimens from around the world, contains detailed information on bridge engineering, and thoroughly explains the concepts and practical applications surrounding the subject.... more...

  • Inspection and Monitoring Techniques for Bridges and Civil Structuresby G Fu

    Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 255.00

    The safety, maintenance and repair of bridges and buildings depend on effective inspection and monitoring techniques. These methods need to be able to identify problems often hidden within structures before they become serious. This important collection reviews key techniques and their applications to bridges, buildings and other civil structures.... more...

  • Bridges and Tunnelsby Jenn Vaughn; Donna Latham

    Nomad Press 2012; US$ 12.99

    Bridges and tunnels are lifelines. People have tackled seemingly insurmountable obstacles, including vast canyons and mountain ranges, to design and construct these amazing passageways. Bridges and Tunnels: Investigate Feats of Engineering invites children ages 9 and up to explore the innovation and physical science behind structures our world... more...

  • Design of Highway Bridgesby Richard M. Barker; Jay A. Puckett

    Wiley 2013; US$ 170.00

    Up-to-date coverage of bridge design and analysis— revised to reflect the fifth edition of the AASHTO LRFD specifications Design of Highway Bridges, Third Edition offers detailed coverage of engineering basics for the design of short- and medium-span bridges. Revised to conform with the latest fifth edition of the American... more...

  • Bridge Design and Evaluationby Gongkang Fu

    Wiley 2013; US$ 130.00

    A succinct, real-world approach to complete bridge system design and evaluation Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Load and Resistance Factor Rating (LRFR) are design and evaluation methods that have replaced or offered alternatives to other traditional methods as the new standards for designing and load-rating U.S. highway bridges.... more...

  • Finite Element Analysis and Design of Steel and Steel?Concrete Composite Bridgesby Ehab Ellobody

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 150.00

    In recent years, bridge engineers and researchers are increasingly turning to the finite element method for the design of Steel and Steel-Concrete Composite Bridges. However, the complexity of the method has made the transition slow. Based on twenty years of experience, Finite Element Analysis and Design of Steel and Steel-Concrete Composite Bridges... more...

  • Accelerated Bridge Constructionby Mohiuddin Ali Khan

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 120.00

    The traveling public has no patience for prolonged, high cost construction projects. This puts highway construction contractors under intense pressure to minimize traffic disruptions and construction cost. Actively promoted by the Federal Highway Administration, there are hundreds of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) construction programs in the... more...

  • Cable Supported Bridgesby Niels J. Gimsing; Christos T. Georgakis

    Wiley 2011; US$ 185.00

    Fourteen years on from its last edition, Cable Supported Bridges: Concept and Design, Third Edition , has been significantly updated with new material and brand new imagery throughout. Since the appearance of the second edition, the focus on the dynamic response of cable supported bridges has increased, and this development is recognised with two... more...

  • Uncertainty and Optimization in Structural Mechanicsby Abdelkhalak El Hami; Radi Bouchaib

    Wiley 2013; US$ 79.95

    Optimization is generally a reduction operation of a definite quantity. This process naturally takes place in our environment and through our activities. For example, many natural systems evolve, in order to minimize their potential energy. Modeling these phenomena then largely relies on our capacity to artificially reproduce these processes. In parallel,... more...
