9781439852057: Bridge Engineering Handbook, Five Volume Set, Second Edition

Over 140 experts, 14 countries, and 89 chapters are represented in the second edition of the Bridge Engineering Handbook. This extensive collection provides detailed information on bridge engineering, and thoroughly explains the concepts and practical applications surrounding the subject, and also highlights bridges from around the world.

Published in five books: Fundamentals, Superstructure Design, Substructure Design, Seismic Design, and Construction and Maintenance, this new edition provides numerous worked-out examples that give readers step-by-step design procedures, includes contributions by leading experts from around the world in their respective areas of bridge engineering, contains 26 completely new chapters, and updates most other chapters. It offers design concepts, specifications, and practice, and presents various types of bridges. The text includes over 2,500 tables, charts, illustrations, and photos. The book covers new, innovative and traditional methods and practices; explores rehabilitation, retrofit, and maintenance; and examines seismic design and building materials.

This text is an ideal reference for practicing bridge engineers and consultants (design, construction, maintenance), and can also be used as a reference for students in bridge engineering courses.

About the Author :

Dr. Wai-Fah Chen is a research professor of civil engineering at the University of Hawaii. He earned his BS in civil engineering from the National Cheng-Kung University, Taiwan, in 1959, MS in structural engineering from Lehigh University in 1963, and PhD in solid mechanics from Brown University in 1966. His interests include constitutive modeling of engineering materials, soil and concrete plasticity, structural connections, and structural stability, and he has received several national engineering awards. In 1995, he was elected to the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. Dr. Chen has authored and coauthored more than 20 engineering books and 500 technical papers. He is editor-in-chief for the Civil Engineering Handbook, the Handbook of Structural Engineering, the Earthquake Engineering Handbook, and the Handbook of International Bridge Engineering (CRC Press).

Dr. Lian Duan is a senior bridge engineer and structural steel committee chair with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). He earned his diploma in civil engineering in 1975, MS in structural engineering in 1981 from Taiyuan University of Technology, China, and PhD in structural engineering from Purdue University in 1990. His interests include inelastic behavior of reinforced concrete and steel structures, structural stability, seismic bridge analysis, and design. Dr. Duan has authored and coauthored more than 70 papers, chapters, and reports, and is the coeditor of the Handbook of International Bridge Engineering (CRC Press). He has received several awards, including the prestigious 2001 Arthur M. Wellington Prize from the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Review :

"... a useful reference volume for any design or construction organisation, but particularly in organisations working to US codes."
Bridge Engineering Journal, September 2015

"Once again the editors... have brought together 146 experts from around the world and from many different sectors of the bridge engineering industry to create this magnum opus. The list of contributors reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the international bridge industry, hence the high quality and relevance of the content should not be in question. A number of new chapters have been introduced since publication of the first edition, reflecting changes in understanding of structural analysis, introduction of new materials or techniques, and the development of new structural types such as extradosed bridges or wider use of others such as stress ribbon bridges."
―Bridge Design and Engineering, 2015

"I personally found that this second edition is a real leap forward; the richness of topics, and the selection of contributors make it greatly enhanced. Such an effort and result is only possible when you already start from a high level ‘position’ as, in this case, the first edition."
––Riccardo Zandonini, University Of Trento, Italy

"... It covers almost all up-to-date facet of bridge engineering. This handbook is particularly recommended as a reference book for professional engineers worldwide."
–– Manabu Ito, Takushoku University, Japan

"A marvelous compendium of the state of art of bridge design, construction, and maintenance―relevant to the twenty-first century designer, while paying homage to the significant bridges of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries."
––Thomas G. Leech, National Bridge Practice Manager, Gannett Fleming, Inc., Camp Hill, Pennsylvania

Praise for the Previous Edition of the Bridge Engineering Handbook

Winner of a CHOICE magazine's Outstanding Academic Title award, January 2001

"All elements of bridge engineering and design are addressed in this weighty handbook which is designed to be a state-of-the-art reference work for the industry in the twenty-first century. Editors Wai-Fah Chen and Lian Duan have invited contributions from bridge engineers around the world, and the list of authors reads like a 'who's who' of structural engineering."
Bridge Design & Engineering, 4th Quarter 2000

"... first handbook dedicated to bridge engineering ... others cover some of the same ground but not in the breadth and scope of this handbook ... any academic or technical library supporting an engineering department should have this handbook."
―CHOICE, May 2000
