Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 54-11. Quality Control Checks for Bridge and Structure Analysis Models

The objective of this synthesis is to document state DOT current practices related to quality checking software-based structural analysis models for bridges and structures. The synthesis will focus on the responsibilities of the engineer in checking structural analysis models. Information to be gathered includes (but is not limited to): (1) Identification of DOTs that have an established process for quality control checking of structural analysis models and those agencies that do not have an established process; (2) Written guidelines and procedures for control checking the models; (3) Engineering practices regarding control checking and how the checking practice may differ relative to the type and complexity of the models being checked; (4) Tools and techniques used for control checking the models; and (5) How the results of the control checks are used.
