An exhaustive guide to the 80 percent of bridge planning and design that most engineers and planners learn only through years of experience, this book addresses all of the practical problems associated with the planning and design of steel and concrete bridge superstructures and substructures. Based on Professor M. S. Troitsky's more than four decades as a bridge design engineer and educator, it offers in-depth coverage of such crucial considerations as selecting the optimum location and layout, traffic flow, aesthetics, design, analysis, construction, maintenance and rehabilitation, and much more. Citing numerous examples and case studies of existing bridges and important projects underway around the world, and featuring more than 200 line drawings and photographs vividly illustrating all key issues covered, Planning and Design of Bridges provides complete coverage of:
  • The history of bridge building from pre-Roman times to the present
  • Choosing the optimum location and layout
  • Methods of crossing rivers
  • Steel superstructures
  • Concrete superstructures and substructures
  • Current design codes and regulations
  • Contemporary design trends
  • Comparative analyses of alternative designs and schemes
  • CAD planning, design, and analysis
And much moreCovering all essential practical, aesthetic, and environmental concerns connected with bridge planning and design, this book will be a welcome addition to the professional libraries of bridge engineers, structural engineers, and architects.
