RECENT ADVANCES IN BRIDGE ENGINEERING Aftab A. Mufti, Leslie G. Jaeger

The result of substantial efforts during the past three years, now in your hands, is an account of recent developments in those aspects of highway bridge superstructures, which have been of direct interest to the authors during the last two decades in particular. The book is organized in eleven free-standing chapters, each of which focuses on a narrow but important aspect of bridge engineering, and five appendices. Sufficient information has been provided in each chapter to permit a ready adoption of the new concepts and methods into the practice of bridge engineering in many (especially the Asian) countries. It is noted that many of these concepts and methods are already incorporated in Canada and to a large extent in the USA as well. The appendices contain complete listings of computer programs as well as instructions for their use.
