The Structural Engineer, Volume 92, Issue 12, 2014, Page(s) 5
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.
Portal frame buildings despite being very common, are a structural form with features that present particular challenges; this has led to specialisation by some designers and manufacturers. The purpose of this final article in the series is to identify and discuss these features, which are not usually found in buildings of more than one storey.
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.
