A comprehensive guide to bridge design
Bridge Design – Concepts and Analysis provides a unique approach, combining the fundamentals of concept design and structural analysis of bridges in a single volume. The book discusses design solutions from the authors’ practical experience and provides insights into the conceptual design with concrete, steel, or composite bridge solutions as alternatives.
Main design concepts and analysis are dealt with in a unified approach.
Execution methods and evolution of the static scheme during construction are dealt with for steel, concrete, and composite bridges.
Aesthetics and environmental integration of bridges are considered as an issue for concept design.
Bridge analysis, including modeling and detailed design aspects, is discussed for different bridge typologies and structural materials.
Specific design verification aspects are discussed based on present design rules in Eurocodes.
The book is an invaluable guide for postgraduate students studying bridge design, bridge designers, and structural engineering.
This book is the result of the authors’ activities at IST–University of Lisbon and at
GRID Consulting Engineers. The support of both institutions is a pleasure to
acknowledge, and special thanks are due to Professor Francisco Virtuoso from IST and
our colleagues from GRID.
During 45 years of professional life as a designer, the first author, A. Reis, had the
privilege of meeting a few outstanding bridge engineers. Particular reference is made to
Jean Marie Cremer, from Bureau d’Études Greisch, with whom A. Reis had the pleasure
of working on a few bridge projects but, most important, developing a friendship.
Part of this book was written by the first author, A. Reis, during his stay in 2013 and
2015 as Visiting Professor at EPFL École Polytechnique Féderale de Lausanne,
Switzerland. The second author, J. Pedro, had a similar opportunity in 2015. Thanks to EPFL and, in particular, to Professor Alain Nussbaumer for these opportunities.
The authors are also grateful to all sources and organizations for allowing the reproduction of some figures and pictures with due credit referenced in the text.
Last but not least, thanks are due to our families for the time this book has taken
from being with them.
