Bridge Design Resources

Recently, a final year civil engineering student requested for bridge design resources. This is what I compiled, check it out:

  1. Design of Highway Bridges
  2. Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges
  3. Bridges [assorted]
  4. Bridge Construction Details
  5. analysis & testing of bridge
  6. Bridge design
  7. bridge detailing guide
  8. Bridge-Design-Manual
  9. bridges design for improved buidability
  10. Forth Bridge
  11. SIR JOHN FOWLER & the FORTH RAIL BRIDGE
  12. Operate & maintain of bridge access gantries & runways
  13. Quebec Bridge
  14. steel bridge group guidance notes on best practice in steel bridge construction
  15. manual on scour at bridge & other hydraulic structures

The Bridge Engineering Handbook seems to be a very resourceful book. You can check the following sources:

You can also check out the following websites for additional information:

Hope this will be useful.

    Dear Victor,
    For my research work at University of Cincinnati, which is a sponsored project by National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) ,USA, we are compiling information on debonding of strands in prestressed concrete Bridge Girders.I was wondering if there is any source where i can get access for European and other international specifications/Bridge Design manuals.
    I am new to your blogs/posts and is amazed by the dynamicity

      Thank you for your kind words. I have some specifications as well as bridge design manuals prepared by the Transport Research Laboratory in the UK. I also have the SATCC (Southern African) Specifications for roads and bridges. I can mail them to you if you don’t mind. You may also check out http://www.dft.gov.uk/ha/standards/dmrb/index.htm where you will find The Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (UK).

      Best Regards
