Item Detail
Guide Specifications for LRFD Seismic Bridge Design, 1st Edition, with 2010 Interim Revisions, Single User PDF Download
Covers seismic design for typical bridge types and applies to non-critical and non-essential bridges. Approved as an alternate to the seismic provisions in the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. Differs from the current procedures in the LRFD Specifications in the use of displacement-based design procedures, instead of the traditional force-based “R-Factor” method. Includes detailed guidance and commentary on earthquake resisting elements and systems, global design strategies, demand modeling, capacity calculation, and liquefaction effects. Capacity design procedures underpin the Guide Specifications’ methodology; includes prescriptive detailing for plastic hinging regions and design requirements for capacity protection of those elements that should not experience damage.
This PDF file is provided through the AASHTO Archives as a historical document for those interested in the evolution of highway standards and specifications.
