Product Overview

When bridges fail, often with loss of human life, those involved may be unwilling to speak openly about the cause. Yet it is possible to learn from mistakes. The lessons gained lead to greater safety and are a source of innovation.
This book contains a systematic, unprecedented overview of more than 500 bridge failures assigned to the time of their occurrence in the bridges'' life cycle and to the releasing events. Primary causes are identified. Many of the cases investigated are published here fpr the first time and previous interpretations are shown to be incomplete or incorrect. A catalogue of rules that can help to avoid future mistakes in design analysis, planning and erection is included.
A lifetime''s work brilliantly compiled and courageously presented - a wealth of knowledge and experience for every structural engineer.
