This book describes the latest methods for assessing and repairing concrete bridges, and provides information on developments in materials and design methods for future bridges. Bridge decks, joints and substructures are all considered. Each invited chapter is written by an eminent international authority. In compiling and editing the text, the writer came to appreciate that so vast is the range of technologies now used by bridge engineers, that there are likely to be only a limited number of single-authored technical texts on bridge engineering in the future. The information provided is distilled for practising bridge engineers, researchers and postgraduate students from both long-running research programmes and the experiences of very senior engineers. The text provides a state-of-the-art report on major aspects of developments in design and materials and in methods for assessment and repair of concrete bridge structures.
