Bridge Engineering Handbook Fundamentals Book By Wai-Fah Chen and Lian Duan
Published in five books: Fundamentals, Superstructure Design, Substructure Design, Seismic Design, and Construction and Maintenance, this new edition provides numerous worked-out examples that give readers step-by-step design procedures, includes contributions by leading experts from around the world in their respective areas of bridge engineering, contains 26 completely new chapters, and updates most other chapters. It offers design concepts, specifications, practices, and bridges. The text includes over 2,500 tables, charts, illustrations, and photos. The book covers new, innovative, and traditional methods and practices, explores rehabilitation, retrofit, and maintenance, and examines seismic design and building materials.
The first book, Fundamentals, contains 22 chapters and covers aesthetics, planning, design specifications, structural modeling, fatigue, and fracture.
What’s New in the Second Edition:
– Covers the basic concepts, theory, and special topics of bridge engineering
– Includes seven new chapters: Finite Element Method, High-Speed Railway Bridges, Concrete Design, Steel Design, Structural Performance Indicators for Bridges, High-Performance Steel, and Design and Damage Evaluation Methods for Reinforced Concrete Beams under Impact Loading
– Provides substantial updates to existing chapters, including Conceptual Design, Bridge Aesthetics: Achieving Structural Art in Bridge Design, and Application of Fiber Reinforced Polymers in Bridges
This text is an ideal reference for practicing bridge engineers and consultants (design, construction, maintenance), and can also be used as a reference for students in bridge engineering courses.
