An authoritative guide to the rehabilitation and repair of existing bridges in an efficient and cost-effective manner
Bridge and Highway Structure Rehabilitation and Repair is a useful resource for structural and highway engineers, offering up-to-date guidance on the latest design techniques, repair methods, specialized software, materials, and maintenance procedures for bridges and highways. This is an essential engineering volume that serves to simplify and clarify all existing code, and presents a wealth of concise explanations. Many examples and solutions are presented for common day-to-day design issues, and the book also includes in-depth case studies of practical problems.
With a strong focus on both traditional and non-traditional design problems, this sure-fire guide equips you with new analytical and design techniques, such as the application of Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD). The book also includes the most recent AASHTO design codes for bridges and highways and offers updated design criteria for dealing with earthquake vulnerability and bridge foundation scour from floods. Coverage is also provided for modern materials technology, including new types of concrete, steel, and other construction and repair materials. 656 pp.
