Bridge Deck Analysis by Eugene J. O'Brien
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Bridge decks have been traditionally designed using a simplified model known as the grillage analogy. In the last two decades computers and associated software have become increasingly powerful and previous analysis limitations are no longer restrictive. Bridge Deck Analysis describes the grillage analogy in detail reflecting, among other things, the shift in emphasis away from computer limitations. The upstand grillage analogy is given particular coverage, and the authors provide practical guidance on its application to common types of bridge deck. A complete chapter is dedicated to the modelling and analysis of integral bridge forms including detailed treatment of the effect of ground stiffness. Guidance is also given on the application of the finite element method. Bridge Deck Analysis provides bridge designers with the knowledge to understand the behaviour of bridge decks, to be familiar with, and to understand the various numerical modelling techniques, and to know which technique is most suited to each bridge type. This is a definitive text on the field of bridge deck behaviour and analysis and is an essential reference for practising engineers and those studying civil and structural engineering.
