About The Bridge Engineering Handbook Pdf Book

An international team of experts has joined forces to produce the Bridge Engineering Handbook. They address all facets-the planning, design, inspection, construction, and maintenance of a variety of bridge structures-creating a must-have resource for every bridge engineer. This unique, comprehensive civil engineering handbook pdf  provides the means to review standard practices and keep abreast of new developments and state-of-the-art practices. Comprising 67 chapters in seven sections, the civil engineering handbook pdf authors present:
Fundamentals: Provides the basic concepts and theory of bridge engineering
Superstructure Design: Discusses all types of bridges
Substructure Design: Addresses columns, piers, abutments, and foundations
Seismic Design: Presents the latest in seismic bridge design
Construction and Maintenance: Focuses on the practical issues of bridge structures
Special Topics: Offers new and important information and unique solutions
Worldwide Practice: Summarizes bridge engineering practices around the world.

Discover virtually all you need to know about any type of bridge:
Reinforced, Segmental, and Prestressed Concrete
Steel beam and plate girder
Steel box girder
Orthotropic deck
Horizontally curved

In this one of the best civil engineering books special attention is given to rehabilitation, retrofit, and maintenance, and the Bridge Engineering Handbook offers over 1,600 tables, charts, and illustrations in ready-to-use format. An abundance of worked-out examples give readers step-by-step design procedures and the section on Worldwide Practice provides a broad and valuable perspective on the “big picture” of bridge engineering.
