Emanating from a lifelong career in bridge engineering, this well-illustrated volume is an invaluable reference for students and practitioners involved in the design, construction, maintenance and repair of concrete bridges. Focussing mainly on the structural concept of bridges, Mondorf covers the design criteria of an array of bridges, including slab-and-girder, frame, arch, suspension, single and multispan bridges, as well as the maintenance and aesthetics. For each type, the factors affecting structural design are highlighted and the design requirements are used to demonstrate how project requirements may guide the choice of a design solution. A valuable guide from an established authority, Concrete Bridges will be an asset to any structural engineer, both student and practising.
