This is a comprehensive guide which focuses on the design of the most commonly found movable bridge varieties, and also provides information on the mechanical systems which generate the movement - an area with which most bridge design engineers are less familiar, but require knowledge of in order to design effective structures of this type.

Movable Bridge Design is a unique reference on past and current structural, mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic design for engineers in, or about to enter, this interdisciplinary field. It offers comprehensive coverage of all of the most common movable bridge types, provides key information on the mechanical systems which drive the bridges and how this impacts on design considerations.
