When bridges fail, often with loss of human life, those involved may be unwilling to speak openly about the cause. Yet it is possible to learn from mistakes. The lessons gained lead to greater safety and are a source of innovation. This book contains a systematic, unprecedented overview of more than 400 bridge failures assigned to the time of their occurrence in the bridges' life cycle and to the releasing events. Primary causes are identified. Many of the cases investigated are published here for the first time and previous interpretations are shown to be incomplete or incorrect. A catalogue of rules that can help to avoid future mistakes in design analysis, planning and erection is included. A lifetime's work brilliantly compiled and courageously presented - a wealth of knowledge and experience for every structural engineer.

This monograph provides a comparative study between failure probabilities and collapse frequencies in structural bridge engineering. The author presents techniques to resolve and extend the limitations of both parameters, taking also into account the time dependency of both parameters. The book includes available data and case studies and thus presents patterns to identify potential weaknesses and challenges in bridge maintenance. The target audience primarily comprises practicing engineers in the field of bridge engineering, but the book may also be beneficial for academic researchers alike.

Diese Ausgabe des Mauerwerk-Kalenders widmet sich schwerpunktmäßig dem Bauen im Bestand. Von Untersuchung und Bewertung bis hin zu Sanierung und Verstärkung werden alle wesentlichen Aspekte abgehandelt. Außerdem wird ausführlich auf bauphysikalische Belange wie Feuchteschutz und Brandschutz im Rahmen von Sanierungen eingegangen. Als Ergänzung zum Mauerwerk-Kalender 2012, der den Schwerpunkt Eurocode 6 hatte, werden umfangreiche Erläuterungen und Anwendungshilfen zum Teil 1 – 2 des EC 6 inkl. NA (Heißbemessung) gegeben. Des Weiteren werden wie gewohnt auch im 38. Jahrgang sämtliche zulassungsbedürftige Neuentwicklungen und die Baustoffeigenschaften aller Mauerwerksarten, Mauersteine und Mauermörtel mit der Aktualität eines Jahrbuches vorgestellt.

Combining a theoretical background with engineering practice, Design of Steel-Concrete Composite Bridges to Eurocodes covers the conceptual and detailed design of composite bridges in accordance with the Eurocodes. Bridge design is strongly based on prescriptive normative rules regarding loads and their combinations, safety factors, material properties, analysis methods, required verifications, and other issues that are included in the codes. Composite bridges may be designed in accordance with the Eurocodes, which have recently been adopted across the European Union. This book centers on the new design rules incorporated in the EN-versions of the Eurocodes. The book addresses the design for a majority of composite bridge superstructures and guides readers through the selection of appropriate structural bridge systems. It introduces the loads on bridges and their combinations, proposes software supported analysis models, and outlines the required verifications for sections and members at ultimate and serviceability limit states, including fatigue and plate buckling, as well as seismic design of the deck and the bearings. It presents the main types of common composite bridges, discusses structural forms and systems, and describes preliminary design aids and erection methods. It provides information on railway bridges, but through the design examples makes road bridges the focal point. This text includes several design examples within the chapters, explores the structural details, summarizes the relevant design codes, discusses durability issues, presents the properties for structural materials, concentrates on modeling for global analysis, and lays down the rules for the shear connection. It presents fatigue analysis and design, fatigue load models, detail categories, and fatigue verifications for structural steel, reinforcement, concrete, and shear connectors. It also covers structural bearings and dampers, with an emphasis on reinforced elastomeric bearings. The book is appropriate for structural engineering students, bridge designers or practicing engineers converting from other codes to Eurocodes.

Zentrale Themen des Buches sind geschweißte und geschraubte Verbindungen im Stahl- und Verbundbau. Darüber hinaus werden auch andere Verbindungstechniken und Verbindungsmittel behandelt, wie z. B.: Kontakt, Kopfbolzendübel, Setzbolzen, Niete, Augenstäbe, Bolzen, Hammerschrauben, Zuganker, Dübel und Ankerschienen. Auf die Methoden und Vorgehensweisen zur Bemessung und konstruktiven Durchbildung von Verbindungen wird ausführlich eingegangen. Neben den allgemeingültigen Grundlagen werden die Regelungen der DIN 18800 und der Eurocodes behandelt und Erläuterungen zum Verständnis gegeben. Zahlreiche Konstruktions- und Berechnungsbeispiele auf Grundlage der Eurocodes zeigen die konkrete Anwendung und Durchführung der Tragsicherheitsnachweise.

Argues that failures in structural engineering are not necessarily due to the physical design of the structures, but instead a misunderstanding of how cultural and socioeconomic constraints would affect the structures.
