Bridge Engineering: Design, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance of Modern Highway Bridges, Fourth Edition

by: Jim J. Zhao, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE, Demetrios E. Tonias, Ph.D., P.E.


Abstract: Fully updated coverage of the entire bridge engineering process. Revised to reflect the latest codes, standards, and technical advances, this practical reference covers every aspect of highway bridge engineering and management. Bridge Engineering: Design, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance of Modern Highway Bridges, Fourth Edition, features the latest analysis, design, and construction methods as well as up-to-date information on materials and components. Cutting-edge maintenance and repair techniques are explained in complete detail. Real-world case studies and detailed photos and illustrations are provided throughout. Coverage includes: • Highway bridge structures • Project inception and funding • Design standards • Bridge inspection and site survey • Physical testing • As-built plans and other record data • Superstructure and deck types • Wearing surface types • Deck joint types • Design loads and methods • Internal forces and load distribution • Concrete deck slabs • Composite steel members • Plate girders and continuous beams • Protecting steel superstructures • Load rating • Prestressed concrete • Substructure design • Abutments and piers • Bearings • Managing the design process • Contract documents • Bridge management systems

Jim J. Zhao, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE is a senior program manager at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority in Washington, D.C., where he manages the authority's transportation infrastructures. He received his degrees from Tongji University, University of Ottawa, Université du Québec, and Bryson University. Dr. Zhao has more than 30 years of experience in design of, teaching, and research in structural engineering and project management. He has authored several articles on bridge and structural engineering. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in the United States and Canada. He serves on ASCE-ACI joint committees on concrete bridge design and prestressed concrete design. Dr. Zhao is a former president of the Structural Engineering Institute, Maryland Chapter, and he is a Fellow of ASCE. He has coauthored State-of-the-Art Report on Partially Prestressed Concrete (ACI 423.5R-99), Recommendations for Concrete Members Prestressed with Unbounded Tendons (ACI 423.3R-96), Analysis and Design of Reinforced Concrete Bridge Structures (ACI 343R-95), and Analysis and Design of Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Guideway Structures (ACI 358.1R-03).

Demetrios E. Tonias, Ph.D., P.E. is a civil engineer and former member of the adjunct engineering faculty at Union College in Schenectady, New York. As a design engineer, he had the benefit of working as an engineer and project manager for a variety of bridge rehabilitation, site development, and public works projects. His responsibilities have included engineering design tasks such as bridge inspection, load rating, superstructure and substructure analysis and design, highway geometrics, site layout and geometrics, final contract drawing preparation, design report preparation, and project presentations. Dr. Tonias has contributed chapters to engineering handbooks, written for technical publications, and made presentations on highway management systems, computer-aided design, and the management of computer-aided design operations.
