This thoroughly revised, definitive guide addresses efficient and cost effective engineering design, rehabilitation, inspection, and repair of existing bridges.Bridge Engineering, Third Edition discusses recent highway bridge design code changes in the United States. Continuing the style and essential content of the previous editions, this revision replaces dated material with new codes and focuses on Load Resistant Factor Design (LRFD). Rehabilitation, inspection, and design remain key requirements to keep bridge systems safe and functional--these are fully covered in this book.This updated volume addresses the state of art of bridge engineering, highlights major concerns, and offers explanations and solved examples for day-to-day design issues. The book is ideal as both a textbook and a reference for the needs of the bridge and highway engineering community.New to This EditionThe latest analytical and design techniques, using Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD)Includes the most recent AASHTO LRFD design methodsDesign examples and tips used as side bars throughoutIntroduces new bridge design and existing bridge load ratingUses both SI and US unitsCovers the latest design techniques and repair methods, including available specialized softwareDiscusses new materials and maintenance methodsComplete coverage:The Structure; Use and Functionality; Origin of the Modern Highway Bridge; Bridge Designers and Their Projects; The Bridge Engineering Lexicon ; Project Inception; Project Funding; Types of Design Standards; Site Inspection; Site Survey; Physical Testing; The Inspection Team; As-Built Plans and Other recorded Data; The Superstructure; Superstructure Types; Deck Types; Wearing Surface Types; Deck Joint Types Design Loads; Design Methods; Internal Forces; Concrete Deck Slabs; Composite Steel Members; Plate Girders; Continuous Beams; Protecting Steel Superstructures; Load Rating; Pre-stressed Concrete; Pre-stressed Concrete Maintenance; Substructure; Abutments; Piers; Bearings; Implementation and Management; The Highway; Contract Documents; Bridge Management Systems
