Concrete is used extensively and internationally for the design and construction of bridges, yet there is little in the nature of a broad and comprehensive handbook suitable for students and practicing structural engineers. This new reference book covers design criteria; bridge types such as slab-and-girder bridges, both single span and multispan, and simply supported or continuous; frame bridges; arch bridges; bridges with suspension systems; bearings and joints; foundations; and maintenance and aesthetics. The main focus is on the structural concept of bridges, highlighting factors which affect their structural design and demonstrating how project requirements may guide the choice of a design solution. For each type of bridge the emphasis is on the configuration of the bridge. Structural analysis is discussed briefly and particularities are explained, but a rigorous treatment of calculation methods has been omitted. Reference is given instead to general texts on structural analysis and to morespecialized literature. Coverage is primarily of the current state of bridge engineering in the developed world, but practice and techniques used in other parts of the world are not ignored. This is also highly relevant to bridges built in the developed world in the past, which may still need repair in the future.
