It is estimated that 225,000 bridges, including nearly 40% of highway bridges, in the United States today are structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. While the urgency of this problem has begun to be acknowledged at official levels, and more public funds set aside for bridge inspection and rehabilitation, the need remains for engineers versed in contemporary rehabilitation methods. Unfortunately, until the publication of this book, engineers’ efforts to educate themselves in the field have been thwarted by the fact that good, up to date material on bridge inspection and repair could be obtained only through a painstaking search through hundreds of specialized publications. Edited by Louis G. Silano, P.E., Senior Vice President and Technical Director of Structures with the firm of Parsons Brinckerhoff. Bridge Inspection and Rehabilitation: A Practical Guide is the first and only "A to Z" guide to practical aspects of bridge inspection and rehabilitation. Comprising contributions from a group of seasoned professionals from around the nation, it provides insights into every element of bridge structure, including broad coverage of materials and design types. Among important topics covered in Bridge Inspection and Rehabilitation are:
- Advances in inspection techniques, including underwater inspection and non destructive testing
- All bridge design types, including suspension bridges, cable stayed bridges, trusses, moveable bridges, and others
- Basic structural elements, such as substructures, superstructures, decks, bearings, and joints
- Special topics of contemporary concern, such as seismic design and seismic retro fitting, environmental control issues, maintenance of traffic during rehabilitation, repair of historical bridges, and much more
Generously illustrated with nearly 200 line illustrations and photographs and offering in depth coverage of most practical aspects of bridge assessment and repairs. Bridge Inspection and Rehabilitation is an invaluable resource for practicing bridge engineers and contractors.
