Decades of cooperation with ACI, ASBI, ASCE, IABSE, ICE and PCI, a 4-year term as founding chair of IABSE working group WG-6 Bridge Construction Equipment, and 37 years of bridge engineering practice in 21 countries have generated a unique wealth of knowledge, learning and insights.
The courses that Dr. Rosignoli teaches for the ASCE Continuing Education Program and face-to-face in the offices of bridge owners, designers and constructors are true learning experiences to train bridge teams in modern bridge design and construction technology while meeting continuing education objectives.
The Bridge Engineering eManuals promote knowledge and learning of modern bridge design and construction technology. The eManuals can be downloaded in PDF format from this website and as Kindle Editions from Amazon.
Bridge owners, designers, constructors and suppliers of materials, technology and services have downloaded eManuals from 43 countries on five continents to master the business-driving arena of the industry.
Brian Hamill, PE, Chief Engineer, Hardesty & Hanover (USA)
Excellent seminar, Marco is an expert on the subject. (Mechanized Bridge Construction, 2 days)
Angela Hunter, Design Engineer, Kiewit Infrastructure Co. (USA)
This course was an excellent introduction to bridge launching. Did a great job of showing when it is cost-effective or applicable, and showing alternates. (Launched Bridges, 2 days)
Timothy Hayes, Senior Project Manager, Walsh Construction (USA)
Great overview and resource to stimulate thought when selecting bridge type. (Launched Bridges, 2 days)
Large-scale bridge projects are constructed with highly mechanized methods. Cost and limited availability of skilled labor and tight construction schedules dictate massive investment in special equipment to mechanize and accelerate the construction...
In industrialized countries with limited availability of expensive skilled labor, medium-length prestressed-concrete bridges are cast in-place with special equipment to mechanize and accelerate construction and minimize labor demand and the construction...
Why are the launched bridges so competitive? Well, it all about cost and quality. The construction cost of a bridge deck includes materials and technology (labor and investment in special equipment). Compared with incremental launching, in-place…
Launched Bridges (1998, ASCE Press), the first book of Dr. Rosignoli, sold out almost immediately.
Bridge Launching (2002, Thomas Telford) and its second edition (2014, ICE Publishing) are the international references for the design and construction of incrementally launched bridges.
The bestseller Bridge Construction Equipment (2013, ICE Publishing) is the reference title for mechanized bridge construction and the design review and forensic engineering of bridge construction machines.
Fritz Leonhardt, Prof.Em., Dr.Ing., Leonhardt, Andrä und Partners (Germany)
Your book Launched Bridges is the most complete presentation of this construction method. I congratulate you for this work.
Giuseppe Mancini, Prof.Ing., Dr.Ing., Professor of Structural Engineering, Professor of Bridge Design, Politecnico di Torino (Italy)
Marco Rosignoli's ability of merging field work with research and innovation makes his books and courses precious to the international bridge community.
John Stanton, PhD, PE, Professor of Civil Engineering, University of Washington (USA)
I regard Marco Rosignoli not only as a worldwide-renowned expert, but in fact THE world authority, in the field of bridge launching.

Paolo Napoli, Prof.Ing., Dr.Ing., Professor of Structural Engineering, Politecnico di Torino (Italy)
The research and practical work of Marco Rosignoli have been enormously influential in diffusing the use of the incremental launching method in Europe.
Clifford L. Freyermuth, Executive Vice President, ASBI, American Segmental Bridge Institute (USA)
Dr. Rosignoli's training and experience make him a world authority in the incremental launching of concrete bridges.
Roberto Capozucca, Prof.Ing., Dr.Ing., Professor of Structural Engineering, Universita’ Politecnica delle Marche (Italy)
Marco Rosignoli has proposed new analysis and design methods, new technological solutions, innovative construction techniques... Marco Rosignoli is making the history of the incremental launching method.
