Dr Leonardo Fernandez Troyano is widely recognised as one of world's leading bridge engineers. He is co-president of specialist bridge engineering consultancy Carlos Fernandez Casado of Madrid, which has an international reputation for its design innovation and excellence - particularly in cable-stayed and suspension bridges. Dr Fernandez has worked on a wide variety of award-winning road, rail and footbridges throughout the English and Spanish-speaking worlds. One of his earliest projects was the stunning Sancho el Mayor cable-stayed crossing of the River Ebro in Navarra (1978), the world's first bridge to use a single inclined-tower design with stays in three planes. More recent crossings include the 850 m long Ozama cable-stayed bridge and viaduct in the Dominican Republic (2001), the 360 m long Gijalva cable-stayed bridge in Mexcio (2001) and the Lowry Centre lifting steel-arch footbridge in the UK (1998). In addition to modern steel, concrete and composite construction methods, Dr Fernandez has extensive experience of rehabilitating old stone, timber and iron bridges. He has received numerous awards and prizes for his work and has presented and published many international papers. He was born in Madrid in 1938 and completed a doctrate in civil engineering at the city's Polytechnical University in 1965. In 1964 he co-founded with his father Carlos Fernandez Casado S.A. the engineering consultancy, and subsequently taught various bridge engineering courses at the Engineers of Roads, Canals and Harbours School of Madrid. His daughter Lucia is also a bridge engineer and helped her father produce this book.
