Topics discussed include bridge diagnostics and management systems, durability, aging, fatigue and deterioration, advanced, sustainable and high-performance materials, optimization strategies and safety and serviceability. This volume bridges the gap between theory and practice, and will be of interest to researchers, representatives from all sections of bridge engineering, bridge engineers working with transportation departments, consultants, contractors and local authorities interested in all aspects of bridge maintenance, safety, and management. Includes a searchable, full-paper CD-ROM.
