Filling the gap between general introductory and highly technical books, "Engineering Design and Analysis of Highway Bridges" focuses on the most common types of bridge superstructures encountered in practice, both simple and continuous, composite and noncomposite, short and medium span bridges. This book emphasizes the practical aspects and economical details in the design of highway bridges. It also discusses various types of bridges including steel, reinforced concrete, and pre-stressed concrete. Based on standards specifications for highway bridges, the book presents basic theory and behavior, bridge specifications, and detailed examples. It is ideal for students and researchers.
