Bridge Engineering: Rehabilitation, and Maintenance of Modern Highway Bridges

Bridge Engineering: Rehabilitation, and Maintenance of Modern Highway Bridges 

Demetrios Tonias

Preference :

Highway bridges dot our landscape by the hundreds of thousands. We pass over and under them, paying no more attention to these structures than we would a tree or a hill. Indeed, the highway bridge has become part of our environment. From a historical perspective, the modern highway bridge was born in the depression years of the 1930s, came of age in the 1950s to 1970s, and it is entering its golden years in the 1980s and 1990s. These structures have performed so well, and they have been so durable, that most of us, engineers or not, tend to take the highway bridge for granted. We simply cannot envision a time when the life of these structures will reach the stage when they will no longer be so durable; when we will no longer be able to take the highway bridge for granted. We have, however, reached that time.
