This comprehensive book describes a number of new or updated bridging concepts which were developed and successfully applied during the author's forty years of close involvement with UK and international bridge design, construction, maintenance and research. The concepts mainly apply to the small/medium span range of bridges and viaducts and contribute to one or more of the following features: design and construction economy in both time and money ease of inspection and minimum maintenance ride quality and safety good appearance strengthening when required with minimum traffic disruption

The critical issues that affect the management of overseas projects are identified in these proceedings. The special problems of language, interpretation of contracts and political influence are discussed in the context of major civil engineering projects, with particular attention to financial aspects. With the increasing involvement of UK consultants and contractors in contracts abroad, this is a timely volume.

As the emphasis in construction moves from building new bridges to maintenance and rehabilitation of existing stock, bridge management is becoming an increasingly important subject. 'Bridge Management' is a comprehensive, single volume book for professionals and postgraduates on bridge management. It focuses on inspection, assessment, testing, evaluation, repair, as well as financial aspects such as whole life costing. Highly illustrated with colour, and including examples of practice and techniques drawn from around the world, the book will be invaluable to the bridge engineer. GIVES comprehensive coverage of this important subject COVERS not only testing, assessment etc but also the financial/management issues HIGHLY illustrated with line drawings and photographs including colour

As the amount of traffic on the roads increases, so the bridges which carry that traffic are having to be modified to meet the changing demands on them. This modification may be in the form of widening, lengthening or replacement to cater for extra lanes of traffic. Alternatively, it may be some form of strenghtening to enable an existing structure to continue to carry traffic with adequate margins of safety. In either case, the engineer is often faced with a complex set of technical problems in addition to the problem of dealing with live traffic.

The major expansion of transport networks in the twentieth century has been accompanied by extensive bridge construction. At the end of the century, the field of bridge engineering continues to grow and develop. Recent years have seen the construction of revolutionary new bridges, advances in materials and construction techniques and the development of international codes and standards aimed at producing more durable and reliable structures. In addition to further construction, many innovative methods and materials are being used to face the challenges of maintaining and upgrading ageing bridge stock. This book presents the proceedings of an international conference specially convened to take stock of developments in bridge engineering at the end of the millennium. It includes contributions from leading international experts, supplemented by important papers on major bridge projects and other current issues. Topics include bridge design, construction, assessment methods, reliability analysis and bridge management.

Earthquakes remain largely unpredictable and potentially catastrophic, a matter of continuous concern to communities in affected zones. Scientists and engineers have made a considerable effort to mitigate their consequences through the design of effective protective devices. New concepts have recently been developed to address the requirements for better structural performance and a more effective use of new materials at a lower cost.This book disseminates knowledge and increases awareness on this very critical subject and thus ultimately contributes to a safer structural design against earthquakes. It comprises a number of articles taken from recent editions of Transactions of the Wessex Institute covering a wide range of topics within the subject of seismic protection through vibration control devices.The first four papers provide a very comprehensive review of existing seismic control designs highlighting their variety, the effectiveness of their performance, as well as the extent of their use for the protection of various types of structures world wide. Most articles deal with anti-seismic devices implementing passive control of structural response through seismic isolation and energy dissipation. Testing and modelling energy-dissipating systems are also extensively covered in the book.It is also important to understand how existing structures fitted with seismic control devices perform against earthquakes. Two such case studies are included in the book; a roof isolated from the top of an existing structure and a bridge supported on both isolating and damping systems. Finally, new analytical approaches for optimising the performance of tuned mass dampers are detailed in two companion papers.
