Design and Construction of Modern Steel Railway Bridges

Description

“For design and construction of steel railroad bridges, it is hands-down the best source available.”
―Stephen Dick, Transportation Technology Center, Inc., Pueblo, Colorado, USA

“This second edition handbook is a tribute to not only Mr. Unsworth’s hands-on expertise, but also that of his esteemed AREMA colleagues. It is a fresh draught from a very fine, well-aged barrel. It will be a bellwether for railway bridge engineering for decades to come; a true bridge book in many senses. Metaphorically, and in the North American idiom, it is a ‘smoking iron horse’ bringing precious knowledge to new people; knowledge from the most efficient rail freight network in the world that has successfully spanned the age of oil.”
― Peter Mulqueen, Ironhorse Bridge Ltd., New Zealand

“What I really like about this text is that it covers all that is needed to design and build a steel railway bridge in accordance with AREMA Criteria. Generally, one need two or three texts to cover the range that this book covers. This book contains very comprehensive new treatment of construction and erection of steel bridge superstructures not found easily elsewhere. It will be very helpful for design individuals as well as construction engineers. There is nothing else like it on the market at this time.”
―Robert A.P. Sweeney, Consulting Structural Engineer, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
