    Winner of a Choice magazine's Outstanding Academic Title award, January 2001
    "All elements of bridge engineering and design are addressed in this weighty handbook which is designed to be a state-of-the-art reference work for the industry in the 21st century. Editors Wai-Fah Chen and Lian Duan have invited contributions from bridge engineers around the world, and the list of authors reads like a 'who's who' of structural engineering."
    --Bridge Design & Engineering, 4th Quarter 2000, No. 21
    "…first handbook dedicated to bridge engineering…others cover some of the same ground but not in the breadth and scope of this handbook…any academic or technical library supporting an engineering department should have this handbook."
