Development of Accelerated Bridge Construction Handbook (ABC Handbook)

The proposed research will take advantage of a tremendous number of activities that the Accelerated Bridge Construction University Transportation Center (ABC-UTC) has had over years in ABC area and will provide the profession with a handbook that is perhaps the most comprehensive document for ABC. This project will result in the most comprehensive document in the U.S. and devoted to ABC, developing, collecting and referencing current and existing ABC knowledge and providing bridge professionals with one document that they can start with to get an answer to their questions. Besides the PI and Co-PIs, several practicing bridge engineers will also be involved in development of chapters. Contributors outside of Florida International University (FIU) will receive honorarium for their contribution. The exact list of outside contributors will be determined at a later date, in consultation with project advisory panel. There are several state-of-the-art publications in the area of Accelerated Bridge Construction for different topics and ABC area in addition to the LRFD Guide Specification for Accelerated Bridge Construction. The proposed Handbook will refer to other documents and will pay great attention to the existing resources developed by different AASHTO committee to use the same terms and terminologies. The handbook will be the most comprehensive ABC source published by the end of the project.
