NCHRP 20-07/Task 244 [Final]

Modifications for AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications to Incorporate or Update the Guide Specifications for Design of Pedestrian Bridges
[ NCHRP 20-07 (Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways) ]

  Project Data
Funds: $70,000
Research Agency: Modjeski & Masters, Inc.
Principal Investigator: Dr. Thomas Murphy
Effective Date: 12/12/2007
Completion Date: 1/31/2009

The objective of this research is to prepare specifications and commentary for the design of pedestrian bridges in a load and resistance factor design format that can be recommended to AASHTO as a standalone guide specification. The specifications will be based on the AASHTO Guide Specifications for Design of Pedestrian Bridges, past successful experiences, and state-of-the-art research and knowledge. The specifications will clearly identify the limits of applicability of the proposed provisions and will reference appropriate articles of the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications and the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications as appropriate to avoid duplication. 
Products Availability: Agency final report was submitted to AASHTO. (NCHRP Staff: W. Dekelbab)
