Design of Concrete Bridges deals with the design of concrete bridges as per the Indian standard IRC:112-2011. This easy-to-read textbook targets undergraduate students of Civil Engineering and postgraduate students of Structural Engineering. Practicing Engineers would also get to understand the background behind design provisions in IRC:112 from this book. Throughout the book, great emphasis is laid on developing a good understanding of the behaviour of different components of concrete bridges.
