  • Wood, Concrete, Stone, and Steelby Denis P. Gardner; Eric DeLony

    University of Minnesota Press 2008; US$ 39.95

    Like never before we are aware of the crucial place of bridges in our lives. The spans that warranted little notice are now at the forefront of public and political debate and we are reminded of the rich history—and the uncertain future—of bridging in Minnesota. Historian Denis P. Gardner documents and celebrates a wide range of the state’s... more...

  • Bridgesby David Blockley

    OUP Oxford 2010; US$ 12.99 US$ 11.17

    Bridges are remarkable structures. Often vast, immense, and sometimes beautiful, they can be icons of cities. David Blockley explains how to read a bridge, how they stand up, and how engineers design them to be so strong. He examines the engineering problems posed by bridges, and considers their cultural, aesthetic, and historical importance. more...

  • Design of Modern Steel Railway Bridgesby John F. Unsworth

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 164.95

    Perhaps the first book on this topic in more than 50 years, Design of Modern Steel Railway Bridges focuses not only on new steel superstructures but also outlines principles and methods that are useful for the maintenance and rehabilitation of existing steel railway bridges. It complements the recommended practices of the American Railway Engineering... more...

  • Safety and Reliability of Bridge Structuresby Khaled Mahmoud

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 231.00

    Recent surveys of the U.S. infrastructure?s condition have rated a staggering number of bridges structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. While not necessarily unsafe, a structurally deficient bridge must be posted for weight and have limits for speed, due to its deteriorated structural components. Bridges with old design features that cannot... more...

  • Bridging the Straitby Copthorne Macdonald

    Dundurn 1997; US$ 11.99

    Bridging the Strait describes the arduous trips taken by ice boats, ferries, steamers and ice breakers which have been the link to PEI. more...

  • Reliability Engineering and Risk Analysisby Mohammad Modarres; Mark P. Kaminskiy; Vasiliy Krivtsov

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 125.95

    Tools to Proactively Predict Failure The prediction of failures involves uncertainty, and problems associated with failures are inherently probabilistic. Their solution requires optimal tools to analyze strength of evidence and understand failure events and processes to gauge confidence in a design?s reliability. Reliability Engineering... more...
