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).

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.
