Ali Mahdi finds this book on steel and steel-composite bridges to be a useful source of
information for students — both undergraduate and postgraduate — with something for
the practising structural engineer too.
Award-winning structures at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority (Carrochan) demonstrate the untapped potential of green Douglas fir as a sustainable construction material.
The final article in this series examines the long-term management of concrete bridges. The inspection and assessment of a bridge over its entire life, the maintenance requirements and possible strengthening to upgrade the bridge to a new load configuration or revised layout are discussed.
