New Edition of Steel Bridge Design Handbook Available

An updated version of the Steel Bridge Design Handbook is now available for free download. The Handbook includes 19 volumes (with topics ranging from design for constructability to corrosion protection) and six design examples that are current with the AASHTO-LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, Fifth Edition, U.S. Units.

The original Handbook was produced by U.S. Steel Corporation in the 1970s, and the project was subsequently taken over by AISC. Supported by federal funds, this new edition was developed by the National Steel Bridge Alliance (AISC’s bridge division), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and HDR Engineering. Each of the volumes and design examples were written by prominent engineers in their field and reviewed by a committee organized by NSBA.

The Handbook can be downloaded from the NSBA and FHWA websites.
