This practicing engineer's guide to bridge decks includes relevant excerpts from current design standards and serves as a comprehensive reference for the evaluation, testing, selection, and examination of design criteria and alternatives for bridge decks. Crucial challenges to civil engineers, such as constructability, particularly as related to maintaining traffic during deck replacement, are covered. The authors also discuss why the use of standard bridge decks is not always possible on bridge rehabilitation projects.
This practical source provides guidance for deck selection and design, and is helpful throughout the development of any construction project involving bridges. Topics include new parameters for deck design; history; the economy of better bridge decks; life-cycle cost methods; types of bridge decks; evaluation, inspection, and rehabilitation; concrete decks; and discussion of design specifications.
