Load and Resistance Factor Design Bridge Design Specifications, 2017 Edition - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, 8th Edition" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

These specifications are intended for the design, evaluation, and rehabilitation of both fixed and movable highway bridges. Mechanical, electrical, and special vehicular and pedestrian safety aspects of movable bridges, however, are not covered.

Provisions are not included for bridges used solely for railway, rail-transit, or public utilities. For bridges not fully covered herein, the provisions of these Specifications may be applied, as augmented with additional design criteria where required.

The design provisions of these specifications employ the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) methodology. The factors have been developed from the theory of reliability based on current statistical knowledge of loads and structural performance. Methods of analysis other than those included in previous specifications and the modeling techniques inherent in them are included, and their use is encouraged.
