More > construction and monitoring of these structures. This manual was prepared to enable the engineer to identify and evaluate potential applications of MSE walls and RSS as an alternative to other construction methods and as a means to solve construction problems. The scope is sufficiently broad to be of value for specifications specialists, construction and contracting personnel responsible for construction inspection, development of material specifications and contracting methods. With the aid of this text, the engineer should be able to properly select, design, specify, monitor and contract for the construction of MSE walls and RSS embankments.< Less
Micropile Design and Construction Guidelines: Implementation Manual By Federal Highway Administration

Prints in 3-5 business days
The use of micropiles has grown significantly since their conception in the 1950s, and in particular since the mid-1980s. Micropiles have been used mainly as elements for foundation support to resist... More > static and seismic loading conditions and less frequently as in-situ reinforcements for slope and excavation stability. Many of these applications are suitable for transportation structures. Implementation of micropile technology on U.S. transportation projects has been hindered by lack of practical design and construction guidelines. This manual is intended as a "practitioner-oriented" document containing sufficient information on micropile design, construction specifications, inspection and testing procedures, cost data, and contracting methods to facilitate and speed the implementation and cost effective use of micropiles on United States transportation projects.< Less

This book is the Federal Highway Administration’s primary reference of recommended design and procurement procedures for shallow foundations. It presents state-of-the-practice guidance on the... More > design of shallow foundation support of highway bridges. The information is intended to be practical in nature, and to especially encourage the cost-effective use of shallow foundations bearing on structural fills. To the greatest extent possible, the document coalesces the research, development and application of shallow foundation support for transportation structures over the last several decades. Detailed design examples are provided for shallow foundations in several bridge support applications according to both Service Load Design and Load and Resistance Factor Design methodologies. Guidance is also provided for shallow foundation applications for minor structures and buildings associated with transportation projects.< Less

This manual covers the latest methods and procedures to address the geotechnical issues in pavement design, construction and performance for new construction, reconstruction, and rehabilitation... More > projects. The manual includes details on geotechnical exploration and characterization of in place and constructed subgrades as well as unbound base/subbase materials. The influence and sensitivity of geotechnical inputs are reviewed with respect to the requirements in past and current AASHTO design guidelines and the mechanistic-empirical design approach developed under NCHRP 1-37A, including the three levels of design input quality. Design details for drainage features and base/subbase material requirements are covered along with the evaluation and selection of appropriate remediation measures for unsuitable subgrades. Geotechnical aspects in relation to construction, construction specifications, monitoring, and performance measurements are discussed.< Less
WEAP86: Wave Equation Analysis of Pile Foundations By Federal Highway Administration

WEAP86/WEAP87 (the two programs were virtually identical) were the last versions of GRL’s classic WEAP (Wave Equation Analysis of Pile Foundations) program to be released into the public... More > domain. Although these programs have been around a long time, they are still useful for the analysis of driven pile foundations for a wide variety of popular pile hammers. The publication is divided into four volumes, all of which are included in this reprint. Volume I contains background material. This details the basic theory behind the wave equation as applied to piles. Volume II is the User Manual for the mainframe version, and is included here for historical reference. Volume III contains installation details. Volume IV is the User Manual for the PC version. WEAP87 is a DOS program which can still be run on a wide variety of Windows computers. It can be downloaded from http://www.vulcanhammer.info/drivability/weap/. Note carefully both the terms and conditions of the website and the disclaimer for this book.< Less
Design and Construction of Continuous Flight Auger Piles (Geotechnical Engineering Circular #8) By Federal Highway Administration
Paperback: List Price: $49.95 $39.96 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This manual presents the state-of-the-practice for design and construction of continuous flight auger (CFA) piles, including those piles commonly referred to as augered cast-in-place (ACIP) piles,... More > drilled displacement piles, and screw piles. CFA pile types, materials, and construction equipment and procedures are discussed. A performance-based approach is presented to allow contractors greater freedom to compete in providing the most cost-effective and reliable foundation system, and a rigorous construction monitoring and testing program to verify the performance. Quality control (QC)/quality assurance (QA) procedures are discussed, and general requirements for a performance specification are given.< Less

This course manual is intended for design and construction professionals involved with the selection, design and construction of geotechnical features for surface transportation facilities. The... More > manual is geared towards practitioners who routinely deal with soils and foundations issues but who may have little theoretical background in soil mechanics or foundation engineering. The manual’s content follows a project-oriented approach where the geotechnical aspects of a project are traced from preparation of the boring request through design computation of settlement, allowable footing pressure, etc., to the construction of approach embankments and foundations. A complete example bridge project is included.< Less

For many years, engineers have designed foundations, walls and culverts for highway and other applications using allowable stress design (ASD) methods. In ASD, all uncertainty in loads and material... More > resistance is combined in a factor of safety or allowable stress. For most highway design, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges represents the primary source document for ASD of substructures. In 1994, AASHTO approved Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) in the LRFD Highway Bridge Design Specifications. In LRFD, the uncertainty in load is represented by a load factor and the uncertainty in material resistance is represented by a resistance factor. Due to the fundamental differences between the substructure design process by ASD and LRFD, this course has been developed to present the fundamentals of LRFD for the geotechnical design of highway bridge substructures.< Less
