This definite reference volume provides a comprehensive guide to the analysis and design of bridge structures worldwide. The in-depth consideration given to the major analytical, numerical and design issues associated with prototype bridge structures will provide invaluable guidance for the construction of new bridges. Sections cover the different types of bridge and their components, an in-depth study of operational research on bridges, a thorough review of international codes, a comparison of the available method of analysis, an overview of design methods, suspension and cable-stayed bridges, and structural detailing. Each section contains numerous analytical and design examples selected on the basis of existing constructed facilities. The book also includes an extensive bibliography and a large appendix on background analyses and computer subroutines. It will prove an essential reference for practising engineers, researchers, designers, technologists, mathematicians, and specialists in computer-aided techniques of bridge construction. (A)
