Bridges, the least known and understood of China's many wonders, are one of its most striking and resilient feats of architectural prowess. Chinese Bridges brings together a thorough look at the marvels of Chinese bridge design from one of the world's leading experts on Chinese culture and historical geography, Ronald G. Knapp. While many consider bridges to be merely utilitarian civil engineering, the bridges of China move beyond that stereotype, as many are undeniably dramatic, even majestic and daring. Chinese Bridges illustrates in detail 20 well-preserved ancient bridges along with descriptions and essays on the distinctive architectural elements shared by the various designs. For the first time in an English-language book, Chinese Bridges records scores of newly discovered bridges across China's vast landscape, illustrated with over 400 color photographs, as well as woodblock prints, historic images, paintings and line drawings.

The need for large-scale bridges is constantly growing due to the enormous infrastructure development around the world. Since the 1970s many of them have been cable-stayed bridges. In 1975 the largest span length was 404 m, in 1995 it increased to 856 m, and today it is 1104 m. Thus the economically efficient range of cable-stayed bridges is tending to move towards even larger spans, and cable-stayed bridges are increasingly the focus of interest worldwide. This book describes the fundamentals of design analysis, fabrication and construction, in which the author refers to 250 built examples to illustrate all aspects. International or national codes and technical regulations are referred to only as examples, such as bridges that were designed to German DIN, Eurocode, AASHTO, British Standards. The chapters on cables and erection are a major focus of this work as they represent the most important difference from other types of bridges. The examples were chosen from the bridges in which the author was personally involved, or where the consulting engineers, Leonhardt, Andrä and Partners (LAP), participated significantly. Other bridges are included for their special structural characteristics or their record span lengths. The most important design engineers are also presented. Note: The lecture videos which are attached to the print book on DVD are not part of the e-book.

To date, very little has been published on the topic of corrugated-steel-web bridges. fib Bulletin 77 offers the global engineering community a first complete overview of this fascinating technology. The shear capacity of corrugated-steel web began to be studied in Japan in 1965 and resulted in the use of corrugated steel in steel-girder webs as a replacement for web stiffeners. After Japan laid the groundwork for the technology, France built the first composite bridge with corrugated-steel webs and upper and lower concrete slabs in the 1980s. Composite bridges had already been popular in France but engineers found that concrete slab creep meant that prestressing force spread into the steel plates, causing high losses. Corrugated-steel web, which reduces axial stiffness, was welcomed as a solution to this problem and several bridges were designed and built with this technology. Building on France’s composite technology, Japan began developing corrugated-web precast box-girder bridges in the 1990s and today has over 140 corrugated-web bridges, by far the largest number for any country in the world. Japanese engineers have come a long way in solving issues such as fatigue and ultimate load behaviour and have made good use of corrugated-steel web’s advantages for bridge building, which include reduced self weight (of approximately 15% compared with the weight of an ordinary concrete box-girder bridge), economy and improved construction processes. fib Bulletin 77: Corrugated-steel-web bridges covers numerous examples of bridges in Japan and France as well as an in-depth case study and analysis of a large corrugated-steel-web bridge in Germany. This publication offers designers, proprietors, contractors and architects alike relevant technical and theoretical information on construction processes along with ideas for future development.

Using Stories to Build Bridges with Traumatized Children is full of creative ideas for how you can use stories therapeutically with children in counselling, life story work or direct work. Psychologist Kim S. Golding shows how you can use stories to build connections with children aged 4–16 and support their recovery from trauma and stress. She illustrates the techniques with 21 stories adapted from her own clinical work with children and families, and explains how you can expand or adapt them to make them more relevant for a particular child. Advice and stories are arranged into sections dealing with common psychological issues, including looking back and moving on, lack of trust and need for attention. Golding also gives invaluable tips for planning stories and life story work, and for storymaking with children. She also describes how stories can be used therapeutically with parents of traumatized children and as a tool for self-reflection by counsellors. Imaginative and practical, this book will be enormously useful for counsellors, psychologists, therapists and social workers working with traumatized children, and will also be helpful for parents and carers involved in therapeutic parenting.

Australia's Engineering Marvels contain the stories of the design and construction of some of Australia's major feats of engineering. Some of Australia's bridges, hydro-electric power stations, railways and communications structures were built at times when much of the technology we take for granted today was not available. Many represented the latest in design and technology when they were built.

The Dalai Lama has given many talks about peace and how we all contribute to world peace. He says "The world doesn't belong to just leaders; the world belongs to all humanity." He argues that global peace comes through meditation which can only be achieved through bringing the individual body into balance, the vibrational energy of the entire inner being. We cannot alter our surroundings which hold the peace until we have this balance and peace within us. The channeled information in this book gives insight into the power within us, the power of our local region and how we balance our body, mind, spirit and the world around us. It shows how to use meditation, food, colors, nature and social settings to achieve this balance. Once you gain inner balance, these tools help balance everything around you. The key to begin is Live Local, Live Simple. This is the first step. Gayle Redfern's interest in spirituality has been life-continuous with a focused drive over the past 15 years. As a conscious channel, she combines this gift with the learning from her degrees in Psychology and Holistic Health, helping others find solutions to achieve personal balance and reasons to share with others. Previously she worked in the communication industry as an educator, workshop leader and motivational speaker.

Bridges are great symbols of mankind’s conquest of space. They are a monument to his vision and determination, but these alone are not enough. An appreciation of the mathematical theories underlying bridge design is essential to resist the physical forces of nature and gravity. The object of this book is to explain firstly the nature of the problems associated with the building of bridges with steel as the basic material, and then the theories that are available to tackle them. The book covers: a technological history of the different types of iron and steel bridges the basic properties of steel loads on bridges from either natural or traffic-induced forces the process and aims of design based on limit state and statistical probability concepts buckling behaviour of various components and large-deflection behaviour of components with initial imperfections detailed guidance on the design of plate and box girder bridges together with some design examples The Second Edition includes a completely new chapter on the history and design of cable-stayed bridges, the various types of cable used for them and their method of construction, and it addresses many of the changes introduced in the latest version of the British Standard Design Code for steel bridges, BS 5400: Part 3:2000.
