High Performance Steel Designers' Guide
In writing the HPS Designers' Guide, the author draws upon the fine works and experience of many professionals from academia, industry and government. He wishes to express his appreciation to these professionals who so generously share information through personal contact, research reports, conference proceedings, case studies, and presentations at technical committee meetings.
The author extends his thanks to the readers and designers who provided valuable comments on the First Edition, and, most especially, to the HPS Steering Committee, chaired by Mr. Alex Wilson, for the very fine suggestions for enhancing the content of this Guide. The comments and suggestions are reflected in the Second Edition.
The author likes to thank his Team Leader, Roland Nimis, for his constant encouragement in promoting innovative use of high performance materials, including HPS, for cost-effective and durable bridges that will last a century.
