An updated classic on designing both functional and visually stunning bridges. This highly visual guide to understanding and using aesthetics in the design of bridges is now available in a second edition. You'll find updated bridge examples, improved photographs, and more technical depth for serious engineering study. New case studies of bridges currently underway provide real-world coverage, with an emphasis on the relationship between design problems, planning, and solutions, along with structural and cost challenges. Featuring a larger page size to better highlight the detailed illustrations and photos, this edition's entirely new coverage includes: * Discussion on the "whys" behind various recommendations.* New material on moveable bridges.* Ways to respond to the structural and cost challenges involved in construction.* Integration of Context-Sensitive Design/Context-Sensitive Solutions (CSD/CSS) into the design process.* Twelve new case studies of bridges, with an emphasis on the relationship between design problems and planning their solutions.* Information on the contribution of bridge aesthetics to environmental impact studies.
