Abstract: This book covers the entire gamut of bridge engineer in-investigation, design, construction and maintenance of bridges. The coverage is not dealt with . Mr. Zhao is also the president of the Structural Engineering Institute, ASCE Maryland Chapter. He is the author of two books on bridge design and one on risk. The Bridge Engineering Handbook, second edition consists of five books: Fundamentals Superstructure Design Substructure Design Seismic Design.
Bridges are not a new concept, they have existed even in ancient times. But the sheer variety, design, and construction methods of bridges have seen an exponential growth in the last century. Bridges may vary widely by the method of construction, structural design, the purpose for which they are built and so on.
The location of the bridge and the purpose it serves could also influence the design methods and construction materials used. Essentials Of Bridge Engineering goes into all aspects of bridge engineering.
It starts with an introduction to bridge engineering, and an overview of the forms, components, and classifications of bridges. The author then discusses the factors to be considered in investigation for bridges. Speak Better English Book.

Bridge Engineering: Seismic Design 1st Edition W. Select Format: Add to Wish List. Close Preview. Toggle navigation Additional Book Information. Description Table of Contents. Summary Mitigating the effects of earthquakes is crucial to bridge design.
With chapters culled from the best-selling Bridge Engineering Handbook, this volume sets forth the principles and applications of seismic design, from the necessary geotechnical and dynamic analysis background to seismic isolation and energy dissipation, active control, and retrofit technology.
In-depth discussions contributed by bridge and earthquake engineers from around the world cover the types and effects of earthquake damage and structural performance criteria. The book also includes an overview of seismic design practices in Japan, including a study of the damage to highway bridges caused by the Hyogo-ken Nanbu earthquake and the changes in retrofit practices precipitated by that earthquake. Table of Contents Geotechnical Earthquake Consideration.
Earthquake Damage to Bridges. Dynamic Analysis.
Nonlinear Analysis of Bridge Structures. The goal was to pick out the ones that had a good variety of bridges along with well researched descriptions and extensive photography. Created by French and German bridge engineer Nicolas Janberg, Structurae is the most extensive online database ever created for works of civil engineering. All manner of bridges, buildings, dams and towers are included from nearly every country on earth.
The massive web site is available in 3 languages. One of the best features of the many bridge entries is the ability to link to the designers and engineering firms behind the bridge. Searching for a specific bridge type is easy as there are many categories including Lenticular bridge, Queenpost truss, Pontoon bridge and Stressed Ribbon bridge. Since the website has a close association to many engineering firms, it is often the only place you will find up close construction photos of new bridge structures.
Historic American Engineering Record With more than 3, bridge entries to date, no other web site has so many documents and photos relating to historic American bridges.
Original design notes, extensive surveys and hundreds of engineering drawings will make you feel like an archeologist who has just stumbled onto a treasure chest of bridge information. Early American truss bridges are especially well covered. Since engineering drawings are often missing or non-existent for older bridges, the staff at HAER has recreated drawings on hundreds of bridges by painstakingly measuring the full dimensions of each span on location.
With an option to download these drawings in high resolution, they are perfect for research.
Although it might be so obvious you ignored it, Wikipedia has grown to include nearly every imaginable type of bridge category with hundreds of examples from all over the world.
Descriptions are clear and concise and are usually accompanied by at least one or two well chosen photos. Some entries have little or no information but that situation will only improve with time.
Since anyone can add to Wikipedia, the website is a great place to post new information or images of an obscure bridge you know of. Wikipedia is also the only place to find large lists on all the bridge records from the world's longest suspension and cable stayed spans to the longest continuous truss bridges.
Since the above link is only a general introduction to basic bridge types and certain categories, you can only find one of the thousands of spans by typing in the specific name of the bridge as there is no master list with every known Wikipedia bridge entry. As the ultimate photo sharing web site, Flickr has also become the ultimate photo web site of bridges with more than 2 million images posted since Top notch bridge photographers like Bob Cortright show off their works of art among dozens of groups such as Bridges in Europe, Bridges at Night, Railroad Bridges and Pittsburgh Bridges.
No category is too small or large with 2 members for the Stuckey's bridge to more than 10, members contributing to Bridges and Tunnels. You might not learn much about the engineering or history of these structures but you sure will be entertained.
Many photos can be viewed in great detail as members usually post larger sizes that can be easily downloaded.
Photographers can also post questions or make comments among their peers.
Dedicated to urban developments around the globe, this web site blog is the best international news forum in the world on current road projects and bridges. Contributors who post on the forums are from countries and continents both big and small including China, India, Thailand, Malaysia and Russia as well as Eastern Europe and South America.
With such a large international contingent, opinions on highway projects are often critical with bruised national pride leading to some lively discussions. Look for the bridge forum under the World Forum called Infrastructure and Mobility.
Also be aware there is a lot of bridge information hidden within other categories. For example, if you go into the category of Latin American Forums and then into the subcategories of Latinscrapers, then Foros Generales and finally Infraestructura de Transporte you will see threads for such subjects such as Autopistas Mexicanas and Autopistas Colombianas that have dozens of pages of bridge filled highways.
What initially began as two small databases of historical U. With a strong focus on the classic truss bridge, these web sites may possess the unique distinction of having actually saved several spans from meeting the wrecking ball.
Historic Bridges of the U. Extensive facts and photography of such details as pin connections, railings and manufacturer plaques attest to the passion of these two guys who are recording what bridge history they cannot save. Following in the footsteps of these two giants is Todd Wilson's Bridgemapper http: Despite being the new kid on the block, this website is clearly the work of another passionate bridge fan and preservationist and will likely grow into another major bridge information resource.
For those looking to do research on covered bridges, Dale Travis's encyclopedic website http: From the most obscure footbridges to the mile long superspans, this ever expanding online library seems to have them all with accurate historical information you will find nowhere else on the internet. It also houses the photo collection of Patrick S.
David also oversees an informative and sometimes lively discussion of all things bridge related at the Yahoo bridge forum, accessible at http: Bridge design analysis and criticism is almost impossible to find on the internet.
These 3 bridge blogs make up for that with a great variety of articles, news links and personal observations from three of the smartest bridge engineers out there. While there are hundreds of film experts informing us on the latest movies opening every week, where can a bridge fan read about the best and worst bridges that open every year?
The answer comes from The Happy Pontist, a bridge designer who critiques the latest spans - usually footbridges - that are opening or in the planning stages. His keen observations are not only on the aesthetics, proportions and details of these sometimes ill-conceived crossings but on the often misguided politics that lead to cost overruns from city councils who are too gullible or uninformed of the engineering risks as well as the engineering firms who are too eager to pitch bold concepts that look dazzling but are too challenging and complex to execute or fund.
