IABSE offers free, online publications archive.

The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) recently made its archive of publications from 1929-1999 available to the public online. The archive contains more than 80,000 pages of historical documents on structural engineering worldwide, all of which are accessible for free to students, researchers, transportation professionals, and the public.

The IABSE archive covers a broad range of topics dealing with structures (such as bridges, highrise and industrial buildings, and sports stadiums), materials (such as concrete, steel, composites, timber, glass, and plastics), and phases of the construction process (such as planning design, construction, operation, monitoring, maintenance, rehabilitation, and demolition). A major component of the archive consists of reports collected from IABSE conferences. Also included are other IABSE series and periodicals. Some publications are available in French and German.

Advanced search functionality enables site visitors to perform full-text searches for words anywhere in the documents. Or visitors can browse the archive by title, author, or year to find information on research, projects, and other IABSE activities.
