Highway Bridge Superstructure Engineering LRFD Approaches to Design and Analysis By Narendra Taly

Description A How-To Guide for Bridge Engineers and Designers Highway Bridge Superstructure Engineering: LRFD Approaches to Design and Analysis provides a detailed discussion of traditional structural design perspectives, and serves as a state-of-the-art resource on the latest design and analysis of highway bridge superstructures. This book is applicable to highway bridges of all construction and material types, and is based on the load and resistance factor design (LRFD) philosophy. It discusses the theory of probability (with an explanation leading to the calibration process and reliability), and includes fully solved design examples…

Highway Engineering Handbook 2nd Edition By Roger L Brockenbrough and Kenneth J Boedecker

Description This comprehensive handbook compiles the full scope of information necessary for effective and cost conscious contemporary highway design. The contributing engineers review environmental issues, location, design, traffic, pavement design and rehabilitation, bridge engineering, culvert design, signing, lighting and life cycle costs, as well as present special discussions on the selection and design of retaining walls to reduce traffic noise and screen unsightly areas. It includes illustrations, maps, graphs, and tables.

Transportation Statistics and Microsimulation By Clifford H Spiegelman and Eun Sug Park and Laurence R Rilett

Description By discussing statistical concepts in the context of transportation planning and operations, Transportation Statistics and Microsimulation provides the necessary background for making informed transportation-related decisions. It explains the why behind standard methods and uses real-world transportation examples and problems to illustrate key concepts. The Tools and Methods to Solve Transportation Problems Classroom-tested at Texas A&M University, the text covers the statistical techniques most frequently employed by transportation and pavement professionals. To familiarize readers with the underlying theory and equations, it contains problems that can be solved using statistical software. The authors encourage the use of…
