Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways. Task 122. Load Rating by Load and Resistance Factor Evaluation Method (LRFE)

The Manual for Condition Evaluation and Load and Resistance Factor Rating of Highway Bridges has been developed under NCHRP Project 12- 46 and is under review by the AASHTO Highway Subcommittee for Bridges and Structures. An important component of this review is a comprehensive comparison of LRFR to the existing load factor rating ( LFR) method. Funding for development of computer software to automate the comparison is being provided outside the NCHRP program. This programming effort is scheduled for completion by April 2001. When the software is available, the funding for NCHRP 20-07, Task 122, will be used to perform a parametric study of the new and old rating procedures.
