Over one hundred forty specialists, 14 international locations, and 89 chapters are represented within the moment variation of the Bridge Engineering guide. This large assortment highlights bridge engineering specimens from around the globe, includes specified info on bridge engineering, and punctiliously explains the recommendations and sensible functions surrounding the subject.

Published in 5 books: basics, Superstructure layout, Substructure layout, Seismic layout, and development and upkeep, this new version offers various worked-out examples that provide readers step by step layout strategies, contains contributions by way of major specialists from world wide of their respective components of bridge engineering, comprises 26 thoroughly new chapters, and updates such a lot different chapters. It bargains layout strategies, requisites, and perform, in addition to many of the sorts of bridges. The textual content contains over 2,500 tables, charts, illustrations, and images. The ebook covers new, cutting edge and standard equipment and practices; explores rehabilitation, retrofit, and upkeep; and examines seismic layout and development materials.

The moment booklet, Superstructure layout, comprises 19 chapters, and covers details on how one can layout every kind of bridges.

What’s New within the moment Edition:

Includes new chapters: Extradosed Bridges and rigidity Ribbon Pedestrian Bridges
Updates the Prestressed Concrete Girder Bridges bankruptcy and rewrites it as chapters: Precast/Pretensioned Concrete Girder Bridges and Cast-In-Place Post-Tensioned Prestressed Concrete Girder Bridges
Expands the bankruptcy on Bridge Decks and method Slabs and divides it into chapters: Concrete Decks and method Slabs
Rewrites seven chapters: Segmental Concrete Bridges, Composite metal I-Girder Bridges, Composite metal field Girder Bridges, Arch Bridges, Cable-Stayed Bridges, Orthotropic metal Decks, and Railings

This textual content is a perfect reference for training bridge engineers and specialists (design, building, maintenance), and will even be used as a reference for college students in bridge engineering classes.

Example text

The suggested minimum haunch at midspan can range from a half inch to one inch. For girders with large flange widths, such as wide-flange girders, large haunch could add up to significant quantities and weights of additional concrete. Therefore, selection of minimum haunch thickness at midspan should be practical. 7 Diaphragms and End Blocks A multigirder bridge has diaphragms provided at abutments and bents. For certain span lengths, permanent intermediate diaphragms may be provided to stabilize the girders during construction.

(b) Effective flange width According to AASHTO Art. 5S, the effective flange width of a concrete deck slab for an interior girder can be taken as the tributary width, that is, girder spacing S.

(AASHTO Art. 2). 72 h. 9). de = effective depth from extreme compression fiber to centroid of tensile reinforcement = H – ybs. Several iterations may be needed to find the shear critical location. A distance from support needs to be assumed first to estimate the path of harped prestressing strands. 0 ft (about 90% of the structure depth) from the face of support is the critical location.
