✏Bridge of Clay Book Summary : THE EPIC BESTSELLING NEW NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK THIEF ‘If The Book Thief was a novel that allowed Death to steal the show... [its] brilliantly illuminated follow-up is affirmatively full of life’ Guardian A lost typewriter -- A dead dog -- The bones of the snake that killed it Matthew Dunbar, eldest of five brothers, is on a journey to find them all. Only then can he tell the astonishing story of his family, rocked by tragedy and a long-buried secret. He will learn of a mother who crosses continents for a new home; of a father searching for love in the keys of an old piano; and, finally, of a brother named Clay, who will make the most challenging journey of them all, and change their lives for ever. An epic and spellbinding quest for redemption and greatness, Bridge of Clay will take you to many places, and will ask two eternal questions: where are you going, and who will you be when you get there ...? 'This is a tale of love, art and redemption; rowdy and joyous.'

✏Stream Stability and Scour at Highway Bridges Book Summary : Sponsored by the Water Resources Engineering (Hydraulics) Divsion of ASCE. This collection contains 75 papers and 321 abstracts presented at conferences sponsored by the Water Resources Engineering (Hydraulics) Division of ASCE from 1991 through 1998. The collection contains many new and expanded versions of the original papers and is designed to assist the practitioner with the concepts in evaluating stream instability and scour at bridges. Topics include: history of bridge scour research; bridge scour determination; stream stability and geomorphology; construction scour; instrumentation for measuring and monitoring; field measurement; computer and physical modeling of bridge scour; scour at culverts; and economic and risk analysis. One important paper contains 384 field measurements of local scour at piers made by the U.S. Geological Survey.

✏Indiana s Covered Bridges Book Summary : Once there were hundreds of 19th-century and very early 20th-century covered bridges in Indiana--so many in fact, that the state ranked third in the nation in the number of structures still standing. By the early 1930s and 1940s, a movement was afoot to preserve those magnificent structures that had not already disappeared due to desertion and deterioration. Some were saved, but many were not. What was saved and cherished, however, was an abundance of vintage black and white images taken by pioneer photographers who willingly trekked from bridge to bridge decades ago. Captured in this volume are nearly 200 of those photographs from the mid-20th century and before, representing more than 36 Indiana counties from Adams County to Wells County.

It is a story about Clay Dawson and the associates and friends that have become intertwined in his adventurous life in the Marine Corps and his involvement with the CIA. Clay and his team's exploits against the KGB and other terrorist groups have resulted in many enemies among those adversaries. The KGB's deep hatred of Clay has made them mount an intense effort to locate and lure him out or retirement so as to assassinate him and his wife. This sequel depicts the attempts by Clay's two worst KGB nemeses with a deep score to settle to eliminate Clay and his wife, Amy. Will the KGB driven by a need for vengeance and their sworn blood vendetta be successful in their assassination plot where others have tried and fail

✏Seismic Bridge Design and Retrofit Structural Solutions Book Summary : Bridge structures can give the impression that they are rather simple structural systems, whose seismic responses can be easily predicted. On the contrary, however, many bridges did not perform well in recent earthquakes, showing a need for increased research to understand various potential problems and collapse mechanisms. Indeed, progress has been made lately in design and assessment procedures around the world, and consequently many practices have changed. In this context, the objective of fib Bulletin 39 is to present, discuss and critically compare structural solutions for bridge seismic design and retrofit that have been developed and are now used all over the world, ten years after the publication of the last comprehensive manual on the subject. It is the result of the work of an international team of experts that collaborated intensively for over three years. The first four chapters of the Bulletin present a regional review of design choices, compare and discuss international design practices, and indicate their relative merits and potential problems. Current developments are treated in the next three chapters, with particular emphasis on design for enhanced damage control, for spatial variation of ground motion and for fault crossing. The last part presents a summary of current issues related to existing bridges. Extensive technical developments have been taking place in the last two decades with the goal of making bridges an important transportation infrastructure with limited damage during earthquakes. Realising this goal depends on regional seismicity, transportation systems, seismic performance goals, local cultures, and a wide range of design and construction practices, which are presented and discussed in this Bulletin.
