6. The Great Bridge: The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge

Author: by David McCullough
Simon & Schuster
English
636 pages

View on Amazon

The dramatic and enthralling story of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, the world’s longest suspension bridge at the time, a tale of greed, corruption, and obstruction but also of optimism, heroism, and determination, told by master historian David McCullough.

This monumental book is the enthralling story of one of the greatest events in our nation’s history, during the Age of Optimisma period when Americans were convinced in their hearts that all things were possible. In the years around 1870, when the project was first undertaken, the concept of building an unprecedented bridge to span the East River between the great cities of Manhattan and Brooklyn required a vision and determination comparable to that which went into the building of the great cathedrals.

Throughout the fourteen years of its construction, the odds against the successful completion of the bridge seemed staggering. Bodies were crushed and broken, lives lost, political empires fell, and surges of public emotion constantly threatened the project. But this is not merely the saga of an engineering miracle; it is a sweeping narrative of the social climate of the time and of the heroes and rascals who had a hand in either constructing or exploiting the surpassing enterprise.

10. Infrastructure Planning and Finance: A Smart and Sustainable Guide

Infrastructure Planning and Finance is a non-technical guide to the engineering, planning, and financing of major infrastucture projects in the United States, providing both step-by-step guidance, and a broad overview of the technical, political, and economic challenges of creating lasting infrastructure in the 21st Century.

Infrastructure Planning and Finance is designed for the local practitioner or student who wants to learn the basics of how to develop an infrastructure plan, a program, or an individual infrastructure project. A team of authors with experience in public works, planning, and city government explain the history and economic environment of infrastructure and capital planning, addressing common tools like the comprehensive plan, sustainability plans, and local regulations.

The book guides readers through the preparation and development of comprehensive plans and infrastructure projects, and through major funding mechanisms, from bonds, user fees, and impact fees to privatization and competition. The rest of the book describes the individual infrastructure systems: their elements, current issues and a ‘how-to-do-it’ section that covers the system and the comprehensive plan, development regulations and how it can be financed.

11. Portals: Gates, Stiles, Windows, Bridges & Other Crossings (Wooden Books)

An illustrated exploration of our limitless fascination with doors, gates, and bridges. The word “portal” comes from the Latin for “gate,” but it refers to any place of ingress and egress. According to architectural historian Philippa Lewis, a portal “is generally an optimistic thing, both literally and metaphorically …

The word encapsulates the idea of passing through, to a new opportunity, to making progress or moving forward, to entering fresh new worlds.”That may be the reason so many people are drawn to the idea of portals-from King Nebuchadnezzar’s Ishtar Gate through the walls of Babylon, to mountain passes, the doorway to the Raphael Loggia at the Vatican, pontoons, and drawbridges.

Portals also have enlivened fiction and lore-what would Arabian Nights have been without the magical command “Open Sesame!” or Alice in Wonderland if Alice had not followed the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole? And in many cultures around the world, a rainbow is a portal that “stands for peace, tolerance, respect for life and diversity.” In this beautifully illustrated book, the seemingly everyday means of ingress and egress become things of beauty and cultural significance.

14. Analysis of Cable Support Systems for Bridges, Structures and Power Distribution – Part 1: Formulation and Application of Catenary Cables and Non … (Analysis of Cables and Cable Systems)

This book is intended for practicing engineers and graduate students that want to get a good understanding of the tools and techniques used to analyze and design systems involving catenary cables and/or geometrically non linear bars. The amount of material presented in this book can be taught in two universities semesters or a mature student can work through the material in self study.

The book first discusses common cable types used in the construction of bridges, stadia and other large structures as well as those used in the transmission of electrical power. Then it briefly describes the various structures that employ cables as the main load carrying elements.

This is followed by a short review of hyperbolic functions which are necessary to mathematically describe the catenary cable’s behavior. This is then followed by the formulation of a catenary cable hanging between fixed ends subject to various loading conditions.

Next, the concept of a geometrically nonlinear elements is introduced using a bar element that is pinned at both ends and can either take compression and tension, tension only or compression only. This is followed by the detailed development of a routine comprised of several functions that facilitates the solution of highly geometrically nonlinear problems using multiple bar elements.
