Bridge Engineering: Design, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance of Modern Highway Bridges
Design, rehabilitate, and maintain modern highway bridges. From steel and reinforced concrete design, to highway layout and basic geometrics, to geotechnical engineering and hydraulics, Demetrios E. Tonia's Bridge Engineering: Design, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance of Modern Highway Bridges fully integrates the resources you need to master the entire bridge-design process. Written with unusual clarity--and packed with timely design examples and case studies plus eye-opening sidebars and graphics--it shows you how to: understand bridge structures, functions, types, and applications; design superstructures and substructures for maximum maintainability; design highway components--approach pavements and slabs, structure geometrics and elevations, roadway alignments, and more; kick off the project--from funding to site surveying and coring; manage the design process--contract documents, reports, plans, client interactions, and more; manage the bridge itself--from creating a structure inventory to extending GIS and CADD functionality.
