Book Description:

”The second edition of a bestseller, this book combines an explanation of background theory with a step-by-step guide on analyzing common bridge forms. It includes practical examples of everyday problems in bridge engineering, which is beneficial for senior undergraduates and new engineering graduates. The new edition introduces reliability analysis, an emerging area that allows bridge engineers to assess risk when maintaining older or damaged bridges in service. Other chapters are updated to reflect the trend toward more sophisticated analysis and widespread access to Finite Element software.”
