From the book: Concrete bridge engineering: performance and advances by R J Cope.

Concrete bridges have played a vital role in enabling the growth of the
communication facilities demanded in the second half of the twentieth
century to be achieved. It is difficult to imagine how the needs for greater
speed and volume of goods transported could have been met without the
rapid developments in design and construction technologies that took place
between the 1950s and the 1970s. So fast were those developments that
some risks had, inevitably, to be taken. Partly as a result of the need to
provide a large number of structures in a short time, and partly due to lack
of adequate research and development funding over that period, the
growing technologies of the 1980s are as much concerned with assessment,
repair and maintenance of existing structures, as they are with the
development of new concretes and with improved methods of design and
construction for new structures.

This book describes the latest methods for assessing and repairing concrete
bridges and provides information on developments in materials and design
methods for future bridges. Bridge decks, joints and substructures are all
considered. Each invited chapter is written by an eminent international
authority. In compiling and editing the text, the writer came to appreciate that so vast is the range of technologies now used by bridge engineers, that there are likely to be only a limited number of single-authored technical texts on bridge engineering in the future. The information provided is distilled for practising bridge engineers, researchers and postgraduate students from both long-running research programmes and the experiences of very senior engineers. The text provides a state-of-the-art report on major aspects of developments in design and materials and in methods for assessment and repair of concrete bridge structures.
