Steel Bridges Conceptual and Structural Design of Steel

Steel Bridges Conceptual and Structural Design of Steel 

Jean-Paul Lebet, Manfred A. Hirt

Preference :

This book is published by the EPFL Press, the English language imprint of the Presses Polytechniques et Universitaires Romande (PPUR). It is one of a series of 25 books, three of which concern steel construction, published in French under the collective title of Traité de Génie Civil (TGC). Volume 12 of the TGC is based on the courses given at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), on the theoretical and applied research undertaken at the Steel Structures Institute (ICOM), and on contacts with industry. It deals with both the conceptual and structural design of steel and composite (steel-concrete) bridges and is compatible with the basic principles and design methods developed in Volume 10 of the TGC. Taken together, Volumes 10 to 12 of the TGC are useful to both students, as support for their courses and projects, and practicing engineers searching for as deep an understanding of the subject as possible. Their contents apply to the design of steel structures in general, and, in particular, to industrial and administrative buildings, and bridges.
