This book offers a valuable guide for practicing bridge engineers and graduate students in structural engineering; its main purpose is to present the latest concepts in bridge engineering in fairly easy-to-follow terms. The book provides easy-to-use computer programs for: · Analysing slab-on-girder bridges for live load distribution. · Analysing slab and other solid bridge components for live load distribution. · Analysing and designing concrete deck slab overhangs of girder bridges under vehicular loads. · Determining the failure loads of concrete deck slabs of girder bridges under concentrated wheel loads. In addition, the book includes extensive chapters dealing with the design of wood bridges and soil-steel bridges. Further, a unique chapter on structural health monitoring (SHM) will help bridge engineers determine the actual load carrying capacities of bridges, as opposed to their perceived analytical capacities. The chapters addressing structures made of fibre-reinforced polymers will allow engineers to design and rehabilitate highly durable, economical and sustainable structures with the help of these new materials. The book also deals with the philosophy of bridge design without resorting to complex equations.
