This book provides a detailed summary of bridge loads from an
international perspective. The authors cover all aspects from the
methodology behind the calculation of bridge loads and the complex
interactions between loads and bridges, to economic considerations.
A wide range of bridge loads are covered, including highway vehicle
loads, pedestrian loads, railing loads and wind loads. The
structure and design of bridges to accommodate these loads are
examined and examples provided. Different modes of failure and
current codes of practice are also covered. This book is unique in
its exclusive examination of the loading and will be a useful
handbook for structural engineers and designers involved in bridge
construction. It is also recommended to senior undergraduates and
postgraduates of structural engineering and bridge design.
