English translation: The need for large-scale bridges is constantly growing due to the enormous infrastructure development around the world. Since the 1970s many of them have been cable-stayed bridges. In 1975 the largest span length was 404 m, in 1995 it increased to 856 m, and today it is 1088 m. Thus the economically efficient range of cable-stayed bridges is tending to move towards even larger spans, and cable-stayed bridges are increasingly the focus of interest worldwide. [...]

English translation:

Beside his strong background of respective education, practical experiences, academic contribution and independent practices, Holger Svensson has converted his professional expertise into integrated form of so many innovation in cable stayed bridge engineering. [...]

The author has gone so deep on the fundamental of structural mechanics of cable stayed bridges, then the historic precursor has also been introduced at very good order and sequence of development with trial and error approach. The aesthetic guideline and the system development have been presented as which young engineers or even bridge engineers shall be taken into consideration for schematic design or preliminary design. [...]

There are more than 140 examples for typical cable stayed bridges all over the world with inclusive details of general layout, bridge system, construction engineering and final completion. [...]

passage from English translation:

[...] The book addresses not only experienced engineers but also students. [... ]

One of the most distinctive features of this book is that it comes with two DVD video discs that cover the 30 lectures delivered by the author at the TU Dresden. [...]

The book is recommended to both steel and concrete bridge engineers as a useful reference for their structural planning, structural details and aesthetic design of the cable stayed bridges in the future.

English translation: The German consulting firm Leonhardt & Partner, with Holger Svensson et al., has been a leading company in the development of cable-stayed bridges. His book contains a lot of information on the subject with main focus on the company´s own projects. A large number of bridges is presented by descriptions, photographs and illustrations of structural systems. Historical development of cable-stayed bridges from the beginnings to present is covered in great detail. The book contains a large number of illustrations, detailed design examples, diagrams and tables. Both erection phases and the completed phase are covered. Special areas like dynamics and stay-cable technology are covered with support of his colleagues Imre Kovacs and Rainer Saul.

[...] The book, now in its English version, contains 6 parts which mention with great thoroughness all the matters that would interest a theoretical scientist, a skilled designer and a student; the absolute knowledge of the subject allows Prof. H. Svensson to present the substance of the issues with great simplicity and completeness. The widespread use of general and detailed photographs and drawings illuminates the text and facilitates greatly its understanding. [...]

I think that the book will remain long in place as a reference and will be a valuable tool to researchers, designers and administrators of cable-stayed bridges.

[...] Prof. Svensson, with his 40 years productive and successful experiences, contributed to us the colorful development process of cable-stayed bridges, and annotated the quintessence of design and construction of modern cable-stayed bridges in his book. This great work has been the best academic book in cable-stayed bridges since [36 years].

[...] Man kann feststellen, dass es sich um eine außergewöhnliche Publikation handelt, offensichtlich um die bisher vollständigste zu dieser Thematik. Im Hinblick darauf, dass sich das Buch an einigen Stellen auch auf weitere, angrenzende Fachgebiete des Brückenbaues und damit verbundene Persönlichkeiten ausweitet, fehlt mir ein Hinweis auf Eugen Freyssinet und seine Generation, wie auch auf Buchautors Zeitgenossen Leonardo F. Troyano, den Nachfolger Carlos F. Casados in Spanien und Jiří Stráský, mit Rückschau auf seine kombinierte Fußgängerbrücke über die Schweizer Bucht der Talsperre Vranov in süd Mähren, mit einer Rekordstützweite von 250 m. [...]
