MTI/MoDOT Transportation Geotechnics Research Program - Tasks 2 & 4

This project includes two components of a comprehensive research program to develop new and improved load and resistance factor design (LRFD) specifications, and associated commentary documents, for design of bridge foundations and earth slopes. Task 2 involves a program of full-scale load testing of foundation elements to evaluate and quantify variability and bias in relevant design methods for deep foundations. Task 4 focuses on performing analyses to establish improved load and resistance factors for design of bridge foundations and earth slopes and development of a new design specification to allow implementation of these improvements. This task will integrate the results of lab and field investigations performed as part of this research program to produce substantial and recurring cost savings for Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
