The Design of Modern Steel Bridges
John Wiley & Sons, 15 avr. 2008 - 224 pages
Bridges are great symbols of mankind’s conquest of space.They are a monument to his vision and determination, but thesealone are not enough. An appreciation of the mathematical theoriesunderlying bridge design is essential to resist the physical forcesof nature and gravity.
The object of this book is to explain firstly the nature of theproblems associated with the building of bridges with steel as thebasic material, and then the theories that are available to tacklethem.
The book covers:
The Second Edition includes a completely new chapter on thehistory and design of cable-stayed bridges, the various types ofcable used for them and their method of construction, and itaddresses many of the changes introduced in the latest version ofthe British Standard Design Code for steel bridges, BS 5400: Part3:2000.
