Design, rehabilitate and maintain modern highway bridges from steel and reinforced concrete design, to highway layout and basic geometrics, to geotechnical engineering and hydraulics are all explained in this book. Written with unusual clarity and packed with timely design examples and case studies plus eye opening sidebars and graphics, the book shows bridge structures, function, types, and applications, design superstructures and substructures for maximum maintainability, design highway components. The book is an easy approach pavement and serves as a slab, structure geometrics and elevations, roadway alignments, and more, kick off the project--from funding to site surveying and coring, manage the design process-contract documents, reports, plans, client interactions, and may more, manage the bridge itself--from creating a structure inventory to extending GIS and ADD functionality. From initial concept all the way to final contract document preparation, the book bridge maintenance, safety and management presents a clear and detailed roadmap to the entire bridge design process. Placing special emphasis on rehabilitation design and maintenance techniques, the book is filled with important design procedures and illustrations. (jacket) Contents: Preface. 1.
