Design of Highway Bridges: An LRFD Approach, Baker

Design of Highway Bridges: An LRFD Approach PDF Download Ebook. Richard M. Barker and Jay A. Puckett provide complete topics on the engineering design and evaluation of short and medium-span bridges utilizing the Load and Resistance Issue Design (LRFD) methodology.

The text has been thoroughly updated throughout to adapt modifications, made in the latest edition of the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. With content material reorganized into smaller and extra succinct chapters, coverage additionally features computer modeling, calibration of service restrict states, rigid method system evaluation, the green facets of recycled steel, and concrete shear.

This text offers detailed coverage of engineering basics for the design of brief- and medium-span bridges. Based on the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officers (AASHTO) LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, it is an excellent engineering resource. This book offers expanded coverage of structural analysis, including axle and lane hundreds, along with new numerical analytic methods and approaches.

There are dozens of worked problems, primarily in Customary U.S. models, that enable methods to be applied to real-world problems and design specifications. Revised AASHTO steel bridge design pointers mirror the simplified approach for plate girder bridges. This book affords latest information on concrete bridges, including new minimal reinforcement requirements, and unbonded tendon stress at ultimate and losses for prestressed concrete girders.

There are additionally discussion and information on key bridge types, choice rules, and aesthetic points with problems and chosen references for further study. From gaining quick familiarity with the AASHTO LRFD specs to seeking broader guidance on freeway bridge design, this book puts information at your fingertips.
