Book Summary of Concrete Bridge Practice - Analysis Desi...


The Third edition of this highly successful book is a complete reference on analysis, design and economics of concrete bridges. Meant for design engineers, contractors, their clients and field engineers, the book presents a practical and systematic methodology to enable quick and accurate design decisions. A step-by-step approach has been adopted throughout the text reflecting the order in which a practising professional might proceed for designing a concrete bridge.

The book contains more than 350 illustrations and photographs, tables and charts, and covers in detail topics such as.....

  • Structural analysis
  • Stability of foundations
  • Soil mechanics
  • Foundation design
  • Reinforced and Pre-stressed concrete design
  • Estimating safe bearing capacity of soils for footings
  • Caissons and piles
  • Maintenance management system for highway bridges
  • Bridge distress reporting — A workman-like approach

The new edition has been considerably enhanced with additional chapters on How to select consultants Value EngineeringA bird's eye view of what is covered giving an idea about the extent and depth of coverage is given below:

  • Practical structural analysis.
  • What a bridge is designed against.
  • Live loading details around the world.
  • Structural concrete, reinforcement and prestressing.
  • The substructure.
  • Effect of shear-ratings of foundations and deck geometry on distribution of horizontal forces.
  • Practical effects of slenderness (second-order theory) in designing tall slender structures.
  • Earth-pressure relief from soil-mass gripping the foundation below scour level.
  • Reinforced-earth structures.
  • Practical details of various types of bridge-bearings, bridge-expansion joints and bridge parapets.
  • The superstructure including cantilever and segmental construction and more.
  • Load distribution among deck-longitudinals.
  • Analysis of deck cross section.
  • Reinforced concrete design.
  • Prestressed concrete design.
  • Design against shear and torsion.
  • Short cantilevers and deep beams.
  • Axial thrust and any-axis bending.
  • Ultimate strength as affected by tendon transformation.
  • Estimation of torsion in horizontally curved multispan decks.
  • Thermal stresses.
  • Various construction techniques and construction considerations.
  • A quick analysis of vibration effects in bridge decks.
  • Cable-stayed decks.
  • Fire resistance of structural concrete.
  • Economics and quantity trends in alternative bridge structure schemes.
  • Some topical reflections on bridge engineering.
  • Value Engineering.
  • How to select consultants.

With its absolutely professional and non-academic approach to designing bridges, giving the shortest and optimal paths to design decisions, this book would be indispensable to all design engineers.
