Description
Tens of thousands of soil-steel bridges can be found in North America alone. Unfortunately, many of these short spans are in serious distress-largely because of lack of reliable design & construction data. This practical guide contains the technical information that will enable engineers to design & construct safe, economical soil-steel bridges; avoid the pitfalls-including metal corrosion-that lead to distress & failure; & restore bridges that are in disrepair. The book includes complete coverage of U.S. & Canadian design codes, as well as such neglected topics as the mechanics of soil-steel bridges; their special design features; the engineering properties of soil relevant to bridge design & construction; & the design of bridges that serve as conduits for water.
