Steel Bridge Design Handbook

The original Highway Structures Design Handbook was produced by US Steel in the 1970s. The project was subsequently taken over by 17Թ. Now, with federal grant money, FHWA, NSBA and HDR Engineering (principal engineer), have completed updating the Handbook. Each of the 19 volumes and six design examples were all written by prominent engineers and reviewed by a committee organized by NSBA.
