Recent earthquakes in many countries of the world have confirmed the potential for very large seismic events that until now were not forecast. The level of disturbance and destruction of highways and bridges as well as life, suffered during these dominant earthquakes were far greater than structural engineers and their associated design codes had predicted. One important lesson that has been learnt is that it is vital that bridges, which connect major transportation routes, must continue to function after an earthquake. In the quest of this realization, new technologies and design efforts by engineers have resulted in the development of seismic protection systems, which include Shock Transmission Unit (STU) together with various seismic isolation and energy mitigation devices. In the only book to provide independent, non-proprietary information on the design and application of STUs, the author offers information on a wide range of different applications, including new and existing highway and railway bridges, as well as non-bridge structures such as nuclear power plants. Illustrated case studies included throughout, Shock Transmission Units in Construction is written by a proven expert in STUs and the only world authority on the subject.

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

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.
