Perhaps more than any other engineered structures, bridges represent the height of resourcefulness both in their design and their use of materials. This work provides both an admiring and a technical account of bridge engineering through an exploration of several remarkable examples. Demonstrating historic significance beyond their utilitarian function,... more...

In the last few years, remarkable technological advances have been achieved in bridge engineering technology. These cover a wide spectrum of issues, ranging from design, maintenance, and rehabilitation methodologies to material and monitoring innovations. Within an international framework of exchanging the state-of-the-art in the field of bridge... more...

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...

At the dawn of America?s love affair with the automobile, cars and trucks leaving the nation?s largest city were unceremoniously dumped out of the western end of the Holland Tunnel onto local roads wending their way through the New Jersey Meadowlands. Jersey City mayor Frank Hague?dictator of the Hudson County political machine and a national political... more...

Model Analysis of Plane Structures deals with simple techniques of analysis plane structures with the aid of scale models. Model analysis of the kind considered herein is a means of replacing the numerical work of formal structural analysis by mechanical operations. It utilizes the same assumptions as formal analysis and offers nothing more in the... more...

On 17 October 1989 one the largest earthquakes to occur in California since the San Francisco earthquake of April 1906 struck Northern California. Damage was extensive, none more so than the partial collapse of the San Francisco?Oakland Bay Bridge?s eastern span, a vital link used by hundreds of thousands of Californians every day. The bridge was... more...

Nonlinear static monotonic (pushover) analysis has become a common practice in performance-based bridge seismic design. The popularity of pushover analysis is due to its ability to identify the failure modes and the design limit states of bridge piers and to provide the progressive collapse sequence of damaged bridges when subjected to major earthquakes.... more...

Bridges built in timber are enjoying a significant revival, both for pedestrian and light traffic and increasingly for heavier loadings and longer spans. Timber's high strength-to-weight ratio, combined with the ease and speed of construction inherent in the off-site prefabrication methods used, make a timber bridge a suitable option in many different... more...

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...

In-operation vibration monitoring for complex mechanical structures and rotating machines is of key importance in many industrial areas such as aeronautics (wings and other structures subject to strength), automobile (gearbox mounting with a sports car body), rail transportation, power engineering (rotating machines, core and pipes of nuclear power... more...
