Since the Eighties in Europe high-speed rail has emerged quickly as a way of transportation, and within the upcoming years many extra tunnel, bridge and different infrastructure tasks may be constructed around the continent. even as layout recommendations and applied sciences have enhanced and cutting edge structural principles have seemed, in view that trains traveling at excessive pace produce new and previously unknown results on constructions corresponding to bridges.
Bridges for High-Speed Railways is a suite of papers from prime specialists during this box. factor addressed include:
– metal and composite bridges for high-speed railways;
– eu criteria for high-speed railway bridges;
– Prestressed concrete high-speed railway bridges;
– Bridge-vehicles dynamic interaction;
– Seismic layout of buildings for high-speed railways;
– Codes and dynamic research;
– development, tracking, upkeep and repair.
Bridges for High-Speed Railways offers a worthy resource of reference for bridge designers, specialists, infrastructure proprietors, regulatory professionals, development businesses, researchers, lecturers and scholars taken with structural engineering initiatives for high-speed railways.
