This book is written for senior level undergraduate or first-year graduate students in civil engineering. It is also suitable for practicing bridge engineers to use as a reference book in design. The text is the outgrowth of the author's lecture notes developed in teaching the international class on design of concrete bridges at Southwest Jiaotong University, China since 2012 and the research and consulting experience in the area of concrete bridges over the years. The objective is to provide fundamental theories and approaches for design and analysis of reinforced and prestressed concrete bridges, based on China's up-to-date railway and highway design codes and specifications. The emphasis is on the understanding of the structural behavior and performance of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, with developing proficiency in practical methods of design.
