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
Geotechnical Engineering Circular No. 6: Shallow Foundations By Federal Highway Administration

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
Evaluation of Soil and Rock Properties By Federal Highway Administration
Paperback: List Price: $49.95 $44.96 | You Save: 10%
Ships in 3-5 business days
This book is a reprint of FHWA IF-02-034, Geotechnical Engineering Circular #5. It presents state-of-the-practice information on the evaluation of soil and rock properties for geotechnical design... More > applications. It addresses the entire range of materials potentially encountered in highway engineering practice, from soft clay to intact rock and variations of materials that fall between these two extremes. Information is presented on parameters measured, evaluation of data quality, and interpretation of properties for conventional soil and rock laboratory testing, as well as in situ devices such as field vane testing, cone penetration testing, dilatometer, pressuremeter, and borehole jack. It provides the design engineer with information that can be used to develop a rationale for accepting or rejecting data and for resolving inconsistencies between data provided by different laboratories and field tests.< Less
Design of Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes By Federal Highway Administration
Paperback: List Price: $59.95 $50.96 | You Save: 15%
Ships in 3-5 business days
This manual is the reference text used for the FHWA NHI courses No. 132042 and 132043 on Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes and reflects current practice for the design,... 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
Paperback: List Price: $49.95 $44.96 | You Save: 10%
Ships 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
