9780128000588: Innovative Bridge Design Handbook: Construction, Rehabilitation and Maintenance

As known, each bridge presents a unique set of design, construction, and maintenance challenges. The designer must determine the appropriate methods and level of refinement necessary to design and analyze each bridge on a case-by-case basis. The Innovative Bridge Design Handbook: Construction, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance encompasses the state of the art in bridge design, construction, maintenance, and safety assessment. Written by an international group of experts, this book provides innovative design approaches used in various parts of the world and explores concepts in design, construction, and maintenance that will reduce project costs and increase structural safety and durability. Furthermore, research and innovative solutions are described throughout chapters.

The Innovative Bridge Design Handbook: Construction, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance brings together the specific knowledge of a bevy of experts and academics in bridge engineering in the areas of design, assessment, research, and construction. The handbook begins with an analysis of the history and development of bridge aesthetics and design; various types of loads including seismic and wind loads are then described, together with fatigue and fracture. Bridge design based on material such as reinforced concrete, prestressed reinforced concrete, steel and composite, timber, masonry bridges is analyzed and detailed according to international codes and standards. Then bridge design based on geometry, such as arch bridges, girders, cable stayed and suspension bridges, is illustrated. This is followed by a discussion of a number of special topics, including integral, movable, highway and railway bridges, together with seismic component devices, cables, orthotropic decks, foundations, and case studies. Finally, bridge construction equipment, bridge assessment retrofit and management, bridge monitoring, fiber-reinforced polymers to reinforce bridges, bridge collapse issues are covered.

  • Loads including seismic and wind loads, fatigue and fracture, local effects
  • Structural analysis including numerical methods (FEM), dynamics, risk and reliability, innovative structural typologies
  • Bridge design based on material type: RC and PRC, steel and composite, timber and masonry bridges
  • Bridge design based on geometry: arch bridges, girders, cable stayed and suspension bridges
  • Special topics: integral, movable, highway, railway bridges, seismic component devices, cables, orthotropic decks, foundations
  • Construction including construction case studies, construction equipment, bridge assessment, bridge management, retrofit and strengthening, monitoring procedures

Product Description:

Innovative Bridge Design Handbook: Construction, Rehabilitation and Maintenance brings together the latest information on bridge design, construction, and maintenance challenges from world leaders in the field.

The book encompasses the state-of-the-art in the field, also presenting updated information on tactics for safety assessment. Users will find innovative design approaches used in various parts of the world, along with tactics on how to develop concepts for design, construction, and maintenance that will reduce project cost and increase structural durability.

The handbook begins with an analysis of the history and development of bridges, including aesthetics and design, and loads, including seismic, wind, fatigue and fracture, creep and shrinkage, local effects, LRDF designs, and bridge design based on geometry.

In addition, discussions of special structures, including segmental bridges, movable bridges, masonry bridges, timber bridges, and railway bridges are covered, along with foundations, construction practices, inspection, and maintenance systems. Every chapter is subdivided into two sections, with the first part tackling design issues, and the second covering numerical modeling methods.

  • Provides an analysis of the history and development of bridge aesthetics and design
  • Discusses loads, including seismic and wind loads, fatigue and fracture, creep and shrinkage, local effects, and LRDF designs
  • Present bridge design based on geometry, including arch bridges, curved bridges, long span bridges, and suspension bridges, amongst others
  • Covers the latest research in numerical modeling methods, giving readers the tools they need to reduce project costs and increase the structural durability of new bridges
