AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, Customary U.S.

In response to the burden and resistance issue layout philosophy (LRFD), this booklet is the results of a five-year study attempt lower than AASHTO's nationwide Cooperative street learn application (NCHRP) undertaking 12-42, and a persisted attempt via AASHTO technical committees. This significant step in more desirable bridge layout and extra actual research is predicted to steer to bridges showing improved serviceability, more suitable long term maintainability, and extra uniform degrees of safeguard. because the First version used to be released in 1994, the provisions have persisted to be up-to-date and stronger in line with carrying on with study and the event of the consumer neighborhood. the hot requirements were systematically validated in trial designs and feature now been applied by way of all 50 states, with forty eight states absolutely carried out.

integrated during this digital version are the 2008 and 2009 intervening time Revisions.

Example text

Spread footings on scour-resistant rock shall be designed and constructed to maintain the integrity of the supporting rock. Deep foundations with footings shall be designed to place the top of the footing below the estimated contraction scour depth where practical to minimize obstruction to flood flows and resulting local scour. Even lower elevations should be considered for pile-supported footings where the piles could be damaged by erosion and corrosion from exposure to stream currents. Where conditions dictate a need to construct the top of a footing to an elevation above the streambed, attention shall be given to the scour potential of the design.
