LRFD Specifications for Horizontally Curved Steel Girder Highway Bridges

The objective of this research is to prepare specifications for the design and construction of horizontally curved steel girder bridges ( for both I- and box girders) in a calibrated load and resistance factor design (LRFD) format that can be recommended to AASHTO for adoption. The specifications shall be based on the Recommended Specifications for Horizontally Curved steel Highway Bridges developed under NCHRP Project 12-38, which are in a load factor design format, supplemented by the results of the FHWA large-scale curved I-girder tests as they become available.
