Segmental concrete bridges have become one of the main options for major transportation projects world-wide. They offer expedited construction with minimal traffic disruption, lower life cycle costs, appealing aesthetics and adaptability to a curved roadway alignment. The literature is focused on construction, so this fills the need for a design-oriented book for less experienced bridge engineers and for senior university students. It presents comprehensive theory, design and key construction methods, with a simple design example based on the AASHTO LRFD Design Specifications for each of the main bridge types. It outlines design techniques and relationships between analytical methods, specifications, theory, design, construction and practice. It combines mathematics and engineering mechanics with the authors’ design and teaching experience.

A State Department of Transportation's (DOT) ability to successfully manage and deliver its program is largely dependent on an ability to develop realistic estimates of project cost. Cost estimating involves not only the collection of relevant factors relating to the scope of a project and the cost of resources, but it also requires anticipating cost impacts that may occur due to changes in project scope, available resources, and national and global market conditions. This publication provides "practical" guidance that serves those charged with the development of DOT cost estimates and with the management of the estimating process. This guidebook has two parts. Part I focuses on key cost-estimate techniques and Part II focuses on cost management activities.

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.

Now with newly updated seismic and foundation specifications. This major step in improved bridge design and more accurate analysis is expected to lead to bridges exhibiting superior serviceability, enhanced long-term maintainability, and more uniform levels of safety. This edition includes newly updated foundation specifications, as well as updates throughout. Based on the load and- resistance factor design philosophy (LRFD), this book is the result of a five-year research effort under AASHTO's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 12-42, and a continued effort through AASHTO technical committees. Since the 1st edition was published in 1994, the provisions have continued to be updated and improved based on continuing research and the experience of the user community. The new specifications have been systematically tested in trial designs and have now been implemented by all 50 states, with 48 states fully implemented. As of October 2007, the LRFD design code will be mandated by FHWA for all state projects using federal funding. As of 2010, it will apply to all state bridges regardless of funding and to local bridges using federal funding. Supersedes all previous editions and interims. The single-user CD-ROM contains both the standard and metric editions of the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications 4th Edition and is available with the book.
