"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, No. 21
"… 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."
?W. C. Schnobrich, CHOICE, May 2000
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.
