Design of modern concrete highway bridges
A text/reference book describing the design of many types of concrete highway bridges. Using examples, the text examines the development of all required loads and the associated bridge design specifications. Details working stress and load factor methods. Includes design charts. Illustrates the design of box beam, segmental, T-Beams, prestressed, postensured, and pier beams. Explanations can be applied directly to design problems.
