Floating
Railroad

Comprising 67 chapters in seven sections, the authors present:
• Fundamentals: Provides the basic concepts and theory of bridge engineering
• Superstructure Design: Discusses all types of bridges
• Substructure Design: Addresses columns, piers, abutments, and foundations
• Seismic Design: Presents the latest in seismic bridge design
• Construction and Maintenance: Focuses on the practical issues of bridge structures
• Special Topics: Offers new and important information and unique solutions
• Worldwide Practice: Summarizes bridge engineering practices around the world.

Special attention is given to rehabilitation, retrofit, and maintenance, and the Bridge Engineering Handbook offers over 1,600 tables, charts, and illustrations in ready-to-use format. An abundance of worked-out examples give readers step-by-step design procedures and the section on Worldwide Practice provides a broad and valuable perspective on the "big picture" of bridge engineering.
