About this product
- DescriptionThis is a comprehensive guide which focuses on the design of the most commonly found movable bridge varieties, and also provides information on the mechanical systems which generate the movement - an area with which most bridge design engineers are less familiar, but require kwledge of in order to design effective structures of this type. Movable Bridge Design is a unique reference on past and current structural, mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic design for engineers in, or about to enter, this interdisciplinary field. It offers comprehensive coverage of all of the most common movable bridge types, provides key information on the mechanical systems which drive the bridges and how this impacts on design considerations.
- Author BiographyCharles Birnstiel is a highly accomplished civil engineer with 50 years of technical experience, 20 of which was spent in full-time university teaching and research, and 30 years spent in industry, mostly in the field of movable highway and railway bridges. He is the author of the chapter on movable bridges which appeared in the ICE manual of bridge engineering.
