A. Soane (Structural-Safety)
Dangers of working in close proximity to water are ever present. Many engineering projects are constructed close to or directly over water, while others may involve the creation of containers for water. To ensure public safety, taking the precautions outlined in this article is of paramount importance.

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.
