Provisions are not included for bridges used solely for railway, rail-transit, or public utilities. This edition presents an updated framework for geometric design that is more flexible, multimodal, and performance-based than in the past. The 2016 Interim Revisions to this report have been published. Methods of analysis other than those included in previous specifications and the modeling techniques inherent in them are included, and their use is encouraged. Its primary goal is to foster the development, operation, and maintenance of an integrated national transportation system. The committees collaborate throughout the year and typically meet annually.
For bridges not fully covered herein, the provisions of these Specifications may be applied, as augmented with additional design criteria where required. For more than 100 years, our association has shared best practices and embraced innovations. The 2015 Interim Revisions to this report have been published. A table of contents precedes each section and references follow each section. Mechanical, electrical, and special vehicular and pedestrian safety aspects of movable bridges, however, are not covered.
When you subscribe, you will automatically receive access to all updates published during your subscription period, as well as access to recent past editions, with changes between editions highlighted for ease of reference. These specifications cover the design, evaluation, and rehabilitation of highway bridges. It represents all transportation modes including: air, highways, public transportation, active transportation, rail, and water. These committees, which represent the highest standard of transportation expertise in the country, address virtually every element of planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining transportation services. The factors have been developed from the theory of reliability based on current statistical knowledge of loads and structural performance.
This new edition includes clearer direction on seismic isolation design, as well as a number of major updates and revisions to the following sections: Section 3, Loads; Section 4, Structural Analysis; Section 5, Concrete; Section 6, Steel; Section 10, Foundations; Section 11, Abutments; and Section 12, Buried Structures. These specifications are intended for the design, evaluation, and rehabilitation of both fixed and movable highway bridges. They are presented in the following 15 sections: 1 Introduction; 2 General Design and Location Features; 3 Loads and Load Factors; 4 Structural Analysis and Evaluation; 5 Concrete Structures; 6 Steel Structures; 7 Aluminum Structures; 8 Wood Structures; 9 Decks and Deck Systems; 10 Foundations; 11 Abutments, Piers, and Walls; 12 Buried Structures and Tunnel Liners; 13 Railings; 14 Joints and Bearings; and 15 Design of Sound Barriers. The document provides guidance to engineers and designers who strive to make unique design solutions that meet the needs of all highway and street. The Materials Standards are updated three times per year, in mid-April, mid-June, and at the.
Standards are issued for design, construction of highways and bridges, materials, and many other technical areas. These documents will provide a high-level view of the various processes that may be leveraged to advance any research funded program. The packet contains revised pages which should be kept with the book for reference. Click on a circle to view its corresponding document. They are available as a one-year online subscription.
