Design of Highway Bridges: An LRFD Approach

Design of Highway Bridges: An LRFD Approach 

Richard M. Barker,

Preference :

This book has the same intent as the first edition and is written for senior- level undergraduate or first-year graduate students in civil engineering. It is also written for practicing civil engineers who have an interest in the de- sign of highway bridges. The objective is to provide the reader a meaningful introduction to the design of medium- and short-span girder bridges. This objective is achieved by providing fundamental theory and behavior, back- ground on the development of the specifications, procedures for design, and design examples.
