Bridge Deck Analysis, Second Edition
The second edition of a bestseller, this book combines an explanation of background theory with a step by step guide on how to analyse the common bridge forms. It includes practical examples of everyday problems in bridge engineering, particularly useful for senior undergraduates and new engineering graduates. The new edition introduces reliability analysis, an emerging area that allows bridge engineers to assess risk when maintaining older or damaged bridges in service. Other chapters are updated to reflect the trend towards more sophisticated analysis and the more widespread access to Finite Element software’.
