ThisFourth Edition of this highly successful book is a complete reference onanalysis, design and economics of concrete bridges. Meant essentially forDESIGN ENGINEERS, it is very useful to the Contractors, their Clients and FieldEngineers, it presents a practical and systematic methodology to enable quickand accurate design decisions. A step-by-step approach has been adoptedthroughout the text reflecting the order in which a practicing professionalmight proceed for designing a concrete bridge.

The book contains more than 350 illustrations and photographs, and tablesand charts, and covers in detail the topics such as:.....

  • Structural analysis
  • Stability of foundations
  • Soil mechanics
  • Foundation design
  • Reinforced and Pre-stressed concrete design
  • Estimating safe bearing capacity of soils for Open-foundations
  • Caissons and piles
  • Maintenance Management System for highway bridges
  • Bridge distress reporting — A workman-like approach

Thenew edition has been considerably enhanced with additional chapters on:

  • How to select consultants
  • Value Engineering

HEREIS A BIRD'S-EYE-VIEW OF WHAT IS COVERED IN THIS TREATISE (which gives anidea about the EXTENT and DEPTH of its coverage):

  • Practical structural analysis
  • What a bridge is designed against.
  • Live loading details around the world
  • Structural concrete, reinforcement and prestressing
  • The substructure.
  • Effect of shear-ratings of foundations and deck geometry on distribution of horizontal forces
  • Practical effects of slenderness (second-order theory) in designing tall slender structures
  • Earth-pressure relief from soil-mass gripping the foundation below scour level.
  • Reinforced-earth structures.
  • Practical details of various types of bridge-bearings, bridge-expansion joints and bridge parapets
  • The superstructure including cantilever and segmental construction and more
  • Load distribution among deck-longitudinals
  • Analysis of deck cross section.
  • Reinforced concrete design.
  • Prestressed Concretedesign.
  • Design against shearand torsion
  • Short cantilevers and deep beams.
  • Axialthrust and any-axis bending.
  • Ultimate strength as affected by tendon transformation
  • Estimation of torsion in horizontally curved multi-span decks
  • Thermal stresses.
  • Various construction techniques and construction considerations.
  • A quick analysis of vibration effects in bridge decks
  • Cable-stayed decks.
  • Fire resistance of structural concrete
  • Economics and quantity trends in alternative bridge structure schemes
  • Some topical reflections on bridge engineering.
  • Value Engineering
  • How to select consultants Etc., Etc.

With its real-time Practising Professional (not Academic)approach to designing bridges, giving the shortest and optimal paths todesign-decisions, and leading the Designer by the finger – as itwere, this book is indispensable to all Design Engineers and to thoseaspiring to be part of this Profession.
