From the book: Bridge Engineering: Construction and Maintenance by W.F. Chen

Among all engineering subjects, bridge engineering is probably the most difficult on which to compose a handbook because it encompasses various fields of arts and sciences. It not only requires knowledge and experience in bridge design and construction, but often involves social, economic, and political activities. Hence, I wish to congratulate the editors and authors for having conceived this thick volume and devoted the time and energy to complete it in such short order. Not only is it the first handbook of bridge engineering as far as I know, but it contains a wealth of information not previously available to bridge engineers. It embraces almost all facets of bridge engineering except the rudimentary analyses and actual field construction of bridge structures, members, and foundations. Of course, bridge engineering is such an immense subject that engineers will always have to go beyond a handbook for additional information and guidance.

I may be somewhat biased in commenting on the background of the two editors, who both came from China, a country rich in the pioneering and design of ancient bridges and just beginning to catch up with the modern world in the science and technology of bridge engineering. It is particularly to the editors’ credit to have convinced and gathered so many internationally recognized bridge engineers to contribute chapters. At the same time, younger engineers have introduced new design and construction techniques into the treatise.
