This is an introductory textbook on modern bridge engineering. The objectives of the text are to provide students and practicing engineers an introduction to bridge engineering and to present the fundamentals of design and construction of bridge superstructures. Since bridge engineering is a broad subject which includes many aspects, such as design, construction, inspection, maintenance, rehabilitation, it is impossible to cover all topics of bridge engineering in one volume. Thus, the emphasis of the text is on the overview and basic fundamentals of design and construction of common bridge types. The text is intended to be used in classroom teaching for a one-semester course in the senior year of undergraduate studies, and not to be used as a manual.
