Design of Highway Bridges offers detailed coverage of engineering basics for the design of short- and medium-span bridges. They are expensive to build, and how well their design handles the parameters of strength, durability, capacity, and safety can determine the viability of the entire system. Design of Highway Bridges provides a complete introduction to this important area of engineering, with comprehensive coverage of the theory, specifications, and procedures for the design of short- and medium-span bridges.
Design of Highway Bridges An LRFD Approach Third Edition
Introduction The primary objective of code specifications in bridge design is public safety. The concept of safety provided in this document is to guarantee that all structural element in the system in part and as a whole must have minimum resistance that will exceed the load and demand applied to the structure during its specified years of service. Bridge design method incorporated in the bridge specifications progressed with the development in the science, technology and research. Working stress design WSD or allowable stress design ASD which was based on elastic theory was the design philosophy behind the early bridge specifications. This specification was based on probability models of loads and resistances where corresponding factors were calibrated using second moment reliability method. Initiatives were then undertaken to adopt the limit state design approach for bridges starting within the Subcommittee on Bridges and Structures SCOBS in

Design of Highway Bridges an LRFD Approach, Second Edition By Richard M. Barker and Jay A. Puckett
Barker and Jay A. This book has the same intent as the first edition and is written for seniorlevel undergraduate or first-year graduate students in civil engineering. It is also written for practicing civil engineers who have an interest in the design of highway bridges. The objective is to provide the reader a meaningful introduction to the design of medium- and short-span girder bridges. This objective is achieved by providing fundamental theory and behavior, background on the development of the specifications, procedures for design, and design examples.
