Reorganization of Section 5, Concrete Structures, of the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications

The purpose of this project is to reorganize Section 5, Concrete Structures, of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) Bridge Design Specification so that Section 5 is logically organized, and philosophically and technically consistent. The entire LRFD Bridge Design Specification and AASHTO Bridge Construction Specification must be reviewed and updated as necessary to maintain consistency. This research project would be carried out in six tasks: 1) survey stakeholders; 2) develop annotated revised table of contents; 3) critically review all interim changes for technical and philosophical consistency; 4) write interim report; 5) develop new revised and reorganized draft Section 5, Concrete Structures; and 6) develop final Section 5, Concrete Structures.
