Bridge is one of the most spectacular civil engineering structure. It forms the backbone of any country’s communication network. Generally a bridge is built to pass over any watery land, river and in some cases in can also built over small sea. It is generally built where a traditional highway can not be built.
Seismic design is one of the most critical design in civil engineering structure. As the number of earthquake is increasing frequently so it is very much needed to do seismic design as in bridge construction there is a huge invest of money.
Wai Fah Chen and Lian Duan are famous for their contribution to the seismic design of bridges. They wrote this book to give the reader the best available information regarding the bridge seismic design.
