Design and Construction of Modern Steel Railway Bridges, Second Edition by John F. Unsworth
This book examines the engineering properties of structural steel typically used in modern steel railway bridge design and fabrication. It presents criteria for the maximum effects from moving loads and their use in developing design live railway loads. It complements and explains the recommended practices of AREMA’s Manual for Railway Engineering (MRE) design specifications. The new edition has been updated throughout to reflect changes in the field. It encompasses current design methods used for steel railway bridges in both SI and Imperial (US Customary) units. A practical reference and learning tool, it provides a fundamental understanding of AREMA recommended practice that enables more effective design.
