Bridge Engineering: Substructure Design

Download Bridge Engineering: Substructure Design By W.F. Chen,‎ Lian Duan – With chapters culled from the acclaimed Bridge Engineering Handbook, Bridge Engineering: Substructure Design focuses on the various components comprising and affecting bridge substructures. These include bearings, piers and columns, towers, abutments and retaining structures, footings and foundations, and bridge hydraulics. For each component, the contributing author addresses the various types of that component, discusses specific selection or design criteria, and provides thorough references. Other relevant topics studied in this volume include geotechnical considerations, such as field exploration techniques and site characterization, and designing bridges to minimize the potential for and damage resulting from vessel collisions.

About Author

Dr. Wai-Fah Chen – A well-respected leader in the field of plasticity, structural stability, and structural steel design over the past half-century, he has made major contributions to introduce the mathematical theory of plasticity to civil engineering practice, especially in the application of limit analysis methods to the geotechnical engineering field. Having headed the engineering departments at the University of Hawaii and Purdue University, Chen is a widely cited author and the recipient of several national engineering awards, including the 1990 Shortridge Hardesty Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers and the 2003 Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Steel Construction.

W. F. Chen, Ph.D. Brown University, Member of U.S. National Academy of Engineering and Member of Taiwan National Academy of Science ( Academia Sinica), formerly Distinguished Professor of Civil Engineering at Purdue University and Dean of Engineering at University of Hawaii. He is currently a Research Professor of Civil Engineering at UH.
