Bridge Engineering Substructure Design PDF

Bridge Engineering Substructure Design – With chapters culled from the acclaimed Bridge Engineering Handbook, Bridge Engineering: Substructure Design focuses on the various components comprising and affecting bridge substructures. These include bearings, piers and columns, towers, abutments and retaining structures, footings and foundations, and bridge hydraulics.

For each component, the contributing author addresses the various types of that component, discusses specific selection or design criteria, and provides thorough references. Other relevant topics studied in this volume include geotechnical considerations, such as field exploration techniques and site characterization, and designing bridges to minimize the potential for and damage resulting from vessel collisions.
