Guide to Bridge Hydraulics (Second Edition) (2001)

Floods and erosion continue to be important causes of bridge damage and failures worldwide, and to be a key consideration in bridge design, construction and maintenance. In some jurisdictions, concern over the security of bridges against the action of water has led to extensive re-evaluation of existing foundations.  This Guide aims to assist bridge designers by outlining the factors to be considered in the location, layout and hydraulic design or re-evaluation of bridges and by suggesting criteria and procedures to do so.

The Guide is directed at civil engineers and other professionals responsible for bridge design, construction and maintenance but who may not be specialists in hydraulics and hydrology.
