  15. 1999 Standard Specifications For Highway Construction: English & Metric: Oklahoma Department Of Transportation - 20 SSH - May 11, 1999
    (Book) - The first and most basic thing to understand in road maintenance is proper shape of thecross section. The road surface must have enough crown to drain water to the shoulder,but not excessive crown, which makes the road hard to travel safely. Then, the shoulder area must not be higher than the edge of the traveled portion of the road.A high shoulder prevents water from draining to the ditch and therefore needs to be eliminated. Finally, aditch must be established and maintained to drain water away from the roadside. Culverts and bridges at the right location and elevation are essential for carrying water under and away from the road.

    (Book) - This is the fifth in a series of combined documents prepared by the U.S. Department of Transportation to satisfy requirements for reports to Congress on the condition, performance, and future capital investment requirements of the Nation's highway and transit systems. This report incorporates highway and bridge information required by Section 502(g) of Title 23, United States Code (U.S.C.), as well as transit system information required by Section 308(e) of Title 49, U.S.C. Beginning in 1993, the Department combined two existing report series that covered highways and transit separately to form this report series. This report draws primarily on 2000 data. This document is intended to provide Congress and other decision makers with an objective appraisal of highway, bridge and transit physical conditions, operational performance, financing mechanisms and future investment requirements. This report offers a comprehensive, factual background to support the development and evaluation of legislative, program, and budget options at all levels of government. It also serves as a primary source of information for national and international news media, transportation associations, and industry. This report consolidates conditions, performance, and finance data provided by States, local governments, and mass transit operators, to provide a national level summary. Some of the underlying data are available through the Department's regular statistical publications. The report begins with an Executive Summary section that highlights the key findings in each chapter. This section is also distributed as a separate stand-alone summary document. The main body of the report is organized into five major sections: (I) Description of Current System (Chapters 1 through 6); (II) Investment/Performance Analyses (Chapters 7 through 10); (III) Federal Bridge Program/Status of the Nation's Bridges (Chapter 11); (IV) Special Topics (Chapters 12 through 22); and (V) Supplemental Analyses of System Components (Chapters 23 through 27). The report also contains three technical appendices that describe the investment/performance methodologies used in the report for highways, bridges, and transit.

    (Book) - This report presents a study, with resulting conclusions, to investigate emerging surveying and mapping technologies, and their applicability to typical assignments of the Office of Federal Lands Highway (FLH) of the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA). This study, conducted in 2002 and 2003 included a review of professional publications, interviews with internal and external consumers and providers of surveying and mapping data, together with field evaluations of certain specific systems. While the study was open to the broad spectrum of emerging technologies at the time, particular focus was directed toward ground based laser scanning and airborne positioning and mapping systems. Field evaluations of different laser scanner systems, over a previously mapped project, details the advantages and limitations of the instruments and software, and highlights specific conditions most favorable to ground based laser scanning methods. Testing of airborne positioning and attitude determination using global navigation satellite system (GNSS) surveying combined with an inertial guidance system (INS) was shown to provide significant efficiencies for route surveying, particularly where ground control surveys are restricted due to terrain or environmental constraints.

  154. Analysis Of Time Domain Reflectometry Data From Ltpp Seasonal Monitoring Program Test Sections-final Report - 50 ATDRDF - July 01, 1999
    (Book) - Time domain reflectometry (TDR) has become one of the most reliable methods for measuring in-situ soil moisture content. TDR sensors developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are being used in the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Seasonal Monitoring Program (SMP) to monitor the in-situ moisture content at selected LTPP sites. The main goal of the study reported here was to develop procedures to produce good estimates of in-situ gravimetric moisture content. All the TDR traces in the LTPP database were processed using the approach described in this report. To estimate the in-situ gravimetric moisture content, methods were selected to interpret TDR traces. An algorithm and a computer program, Moisture, were developed to implement these TDR interpretive methods. After that, the apparent length of the TDR trace and the dielectric constant of the unbound material were computed. Models were developed to relate dielectric constant with in-situ volumetric moisture content. Finally, gravimetric moisture content was computed using the volumetric moisture content value and dry density of the soil. A diagnostic study of the computed gravimetric moisture content was also conducted to evaluate the reasonableness of the computed moisture contents. As part of the overall LTPP data analysis effort, it is expected that the information on the seasonal variation in the moisture content of the unbound base, subbase, and subgrade layers will be used to develop improved understanding of the seasonal variation in the load-carrying capacity of pavements and the subsequent effect on pavement performance.

The program is sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and carried out under a three-way agreement among the National Academies (the Academies), acting through its Transportation Research Board (TRB); the Transit Development Corporation, an educational and research arm of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA); and the FTA. TCRP focuses on issues significant to the transit industry, with emphasis on developing near-term research solutions to a variety of transit problems involving facilities, vehicles, equipment, service concepts, operations, policy, planning, human resources, maintenance, and administrative practices. TCRP is a unique undertaking. Anyone with an interest in public transportation may play a role in setting the research agenda for the program by submitting research problem statements to TRB at any time. Problem statements are solicited annually on the Internet and by means of a mailing to more than 3,000 individuals representing transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), universities, and federal agencies. In addition, to complement the open solicitation process, from time to time, research needs conferences are held or small consultant studies are commissioned to develop research problem statements on topics of special interest. The selection of research projects is the responsibility of the TCRP Oversight and Project Selection (TOPS) Committee. The TOPS Committee consists of industry executives, representing the primary beneficiaries of TCRP research. It functions as the TCRP governing board and sets research priorities.

  202. Assessment Of Ltpp Friction Data - 50 ALFD - March 01, 1999
    (Book) - A major goal of the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) study is the development of recommendations for improving the design and construction of new and rehabilitated pavements to make them longer lasting. As part of the condition monitoring of the LTPP test sections, friction data are being collected on a regular basis at each test site. Friction data collection is the responsibility of the specific highway agency under whose jurisdiction the pavements are located. The LTPP data collection guidelines for friction data recommend using the ASTM E-274 (AASHTO T242) procedure as the preferred method for obtaining data. The ASTM E-274 procedure uses a locked-wheel skid tester in a trailer assembly. Friction test results are reported as Skid Numbers (SN's). This report provides an assessment of the availability, characteristics, and quality of the friction data collected as part of the LTPP study. Also, the availability of related pavement characteristics data was assessed. The report also contains recommendations for adjustments and refinements to current procedures for the collection of friction and related data. The LTPP database provides a one-stop source of reasonably good friction data collected in a systemic manner from a wide range of pavements subjected to a wide range of traffic loading and environmental conditions. The friction data will be of use for analyzing why some pavement surfaces retain good friction characteristics with time and why some surfaces show rapid deterioration in friction over time.

  206. At The Crossroads Preserving Our Highway Invesment - 12 ATCPOHI - 2007
    (Book) - We have written this document to stimulate serious discussion about the nation's highways, including their role, extent, how they are financed, constructed, maintained, and to explore more effective and efficient ways of achieving our transportation objectives. Recognizing that many diverse stakeholders are vitally interested in our highway system, we have sought to understand and, to the extent possible, balance these interests. In doing this, we have focused on the physical system and the processes by which highways are planned, constructed, and maintained rather than on individuals and institutions. The document should be of greatest interest to policy and decision makers such as elected officials, agency administrators, and senior technical personnel such as engineers and planners who have broad responsibility for making program and project-level decisions.

  208. Atkinson Construction Employee Safety Training Program - CD50 WZAA09-EST - April 01, 2009
    (CD) - This CD highlights how Atkinson Construction developed an extensive employee safety program that has helped cut the recordable workplace incident rate by nearly half and changed the company safety culture. The safety program is multi-faceted, integrated into regular work routines of their Design Build Project. Training begins on each employee’s first day and continues daily throughout the project. Significantly, the program includes all project employees at Atkinson, as well as subcontractors and Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) employees assigned to the project. Historically, safety has been a top-down mandate, not one readily embraced by construction workers. Atkinson has energized employees by involving them at all levels, developing a positive safety culture. In addition, Atkinson has developed plans, procedures and training for staff to prepare for emergencies: a 55-page Crisis Management Plan details corporate emergency procedures and a two-page Emergency Response Protocol outlines the steps to follow in case of emergencies.

    (Free Publication) - State and local transportation agencies have found it difficult to increase the transportation system to keep pace with the growing demand. Transportation agencies are further challenged by the time required to design and construct these traditional infrastructure improvements. In response to this dilemma, ITS solutions can be implemented more quickly and less expensively by comparison. Nationwide deployment of ITS has been shown to produce significant benefits. By themselves, ITS strategies will not eradicate congestion; however, they are essential components to a to a well-balanced, well-operating transportation network. In this book benefits and costs of the ITS deployment were estimated for the Tucson area based on forecasts of traffic in the year 2025.

When the demand for travel in a region exceeds the available capacity of the transportation system, residents suffer from excessive travel times, increased crash risks, diminished air quality, and other negative impacts. State and local transportation agencies have found it difficult to increase the transportation system supply rapidly enough to keep pace with the growing demand. Transportation agencies are further challenged by the time required to design and construct these traditional infrastructure improvements. In response to this dilemma, transportation agencies have increasingly turned to improved operational strategies and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in order to squeeze more operational efficiency out of the existing transportation system.

  252. Best Management Practices For Chemical Treatment Systems For Construction Stormwater And Dewatering - 40 BMPCTS - October 01, 2008
    (Book) - Chemical Treatment Systems (CTS) are implemented in areas where traditional, physical erosion, and sediment control practices will not meet water quality goals for construction site runoff. The purpose of CTS is to reduce the amount of suspended sediment which would be released using conventional erosion control systems. The primary mechanism is the introduction of chemical fl occulants into runoff, resulting in a binding of the suspended clays and silts together into larger particles which settle more quickly or can be filtered from the stormwater. Flow control through CTS is of vital importance for the proper dosing of stormwater runoff. All normal hydrologic analyses must be done to insure that reasonable peak flows are accounted for along with typical flows from designed storm events. Once analysis is adequately addressed, then the project can deal with the complexities of design and dose rate requirements. The overall objectives of this book are twofold. First, it is designed to provide a technically credible basis for best management practices for the use of CTS for turbidity reduction on road construction projects. Secondly, it is designed to identify the most important variables to address when selecting chemical treatment, best management practices for a particular site.

  254. Best Management Practices For Npdes Permit Compliance - CD11 NPDESPC - 2009
    (CD) - National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits require many municipalities to develop and implement a program to identify and eliminate illicit discharges to the municipal separate storm sewer system. Traditionally, illicit discharge investigations have originated from citizen complaint calls and can often become a time and labor intensive process of elimination. Evolve your program into a more comprehensive and organized approach to illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE). Rather than reacting to complaints, utilize the variety of tools available to establish a proactive and preventive IDDE program. This session will explore illicit discharge strategies and techniques, codes and citizen involvement to illustrate how you can use these tools to your advantage. After viewing this program, participants will be better able to: # Identify both traditional and novel tools to detect the presence of illicit discharge and backtrack a suspected illicit discharge to its source # Utilize GIS mapping for illicit discharge detection # Understand the advantages of utilizing a database to more efficiently track illicit discharge

Thanks to the Division of Operations and the Office of Training, capturing best practices for maintenance operations has just gotten easier.Slated to be released this year, a series of best practice training videos staring maintenance crews from around the state will be distributed through multiple channels: DVDs, YouTube, online portals and possibly even part of specific training courses.

  304. Bridge Management Systems - 25 BMS - May 11, 1987
    (Book) - This report summarizes research accomplished on NCHRP Project 12-28(2), "Bridge Management Systems". The study initially reviewed the management needs associated with the nation's bridges and investigated practices of selected state DOTs in bridge manegement activities at the network level. With this background and a thorough literature search and review, a foundation framework for a generic bridge management system was developed and presented in an interim report. A conceptual model Bridge Management System (BMS) was then developed after a thorough and critical review of the background information and foundation framework. The model BMS presented consists of six major modules and several submodules as follows: (1) data base module; (2) network level major maintenance, rehabilitation, and replacement (MR&R) selection module - a) ranking submodule, b) specific MR&R action selection submodule, c) life cycle costing submodule, and d) optimization submodule; (3) maintenance module; (4) historical data analysis module; (5) project level interface module; and (6) reporting module. These modules and submodules interact to perform the basic functions of bridge management. Descriptions of the initial models developed by the researchers for each module are also presented. Future improvements could be easily made to the modularized system. An implementation plan was developed which describes the steps for developing working BMS software and implementing it on a trial basis.

  352. Center Line Rumble Strips: Technical Advisory - 50 CLRS - November 01, 2011
    (Book) - One of FHWA’s primary safety goals is to reduce the number and severity of roadway departure crashes. These consist of run-off-road (including cross median) crashes and cross center line crashes on undivided roads. Safety improvements proposed to address this goal include initiatives to keep vehicles on the roadway, to improve the likelihood of a safe recovery after a roadway departure, and to reduce the severity of those crashes that do occur. Center line rumble strips are one of the proven countermeasures that reduce the risks of cross center line crashes. This technical advisory is to disseminate updated information and guidelines for the design and installation of center line rumble strips on appropriate segments of paved roads. This information applies to a wide range of projects including new construction, reconstruction, resurfacing, and safety improvements. Highway professionals should consider the needs of all road users, existing roadway conditions, the scope of the project, and the surrounding environment when applying this information and guidance.

  361. Characterization Of Modified Asphalt Binders In Superpave Mix Design: Nchrp Report 459 - 24 CMA - 2001
    (Book) - This report documents the results of a study on the applicability of Superpave specification (AASHTO MP1, "Standard Specification for Performance Graded Asphalt Binder") and protocols developed for asphalt cements to modified asphalt binders. A survey indicated that, although the majority of state agencies intend to increase future use of modified binders, very little is known about the binders' behavior. In addition, there are serious concerns regarding their storage stability, aging, and mixing and compaction temperatures. Using advanced rheological characterization of a selected set of binders and mixtures, it was found that the binder specification parameters in the current AASHTO MP1 are not adequate to rank the modified binders according to their contribution to mixture damage. The concepts of viscous flow and energy dissipation were explored in an effort to derive binder parameters that more effectively relate binder to mixture behavior. Suggested test protocols and specification parameters were developed to integrate the new concepts into a future specification. A direct measure of the glass transition behavior and the use of a design-cooling rate were identified as reliable estimators of the binders' role in thermal cracking. Also, a storage stability test and a particulate additive test were developed and proposed as standard tests. The concept of low shear viscosity was introduced for the determination of laboratory mixing and compaction temperatures to avoid excessive heating and to consider the shear-rate dependency of modified binders. Revisions to the binder grading system are recommended to include a three-level grading scheme. A field validation plan is proposed to test the validity of these concepts and to derive reliable specification criteria and limits.

  391. Collection And Use Of Pavement Condition Data - 24 CUPCD - May 11, 1981
    (Book) - Pavement condition data are collected and used to establish maintenance and rehabilitation priorities, to select maintenance and rehabilitation strategies, and to project pavement performance. The pavement condition data is grouped as follows: roughness (ride), surface distress, structural evaluation (deflection), and skid resistance. The equipment used to measure roughness includes the CHLOE profilometer, car ride meter, and loser profilometer. Most agencies used a car ride meter. Advantages and disadvantages of the latter are noted. Surface distress (a measure of pavement fracture, distortion, and disintegration) information is obtained by surveying and recording various defects such as cracking and rutting. Survey methods are usually subjective and variation in data can be minimized by having rates stop at the same location each year, obtaining data every 1 or 0.5 mi, obtaining a consensus of at least two raters for each segment, and keeping procedures as simple as possible. Structural adequacy is measured, by surface deflection measurements (Static deflection, steady - state dynamic deflection, impact - load response). Skid resistance data are routinely collected by most agencies by locked-wheel or yaw-mode trailers. The amount of pavement network on which data are collected varies among the agencies. Problem areas encountered during data collection and analysis are noted.

  416. Common Characteristics Of Good And Poorly Performing Pcc Pavements - 50 CCGPP - January 01, 1998
    (Book) - This report documents the analysis and findings of a study to identify the site conditions and design/construction features of rigid pavements that lead to good performance and those that lead to poor performance. Data from the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) test sections were used along with findings from previous and ongoing analyses of LTPP This report documents the analysis and findings of a study to identify the site conditions and design/construction features of concrete pavements (JPCP, JRCP, CRCP) that lead to good performance and those that lead to poor performance. Data from Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) test sections were used along with findings from previous and ongoing analyses of LTPP data. As there were no known criteria for identifying performance expectations over time as good, normal, or poor; a group of experts was convened to establish criteria. Separate criteria were developed for performance in roughness (IRI), joint faulting, transverse cracking, and localized failures (CRCP). Many significant site conditions and design/construction features were identified that lead to good and poor performance. The site conditions (traffic, climate, and subgrade) cannot be controlled by the designer, however, steps can be taken to mitigate their effects. Several design and construction features can be controlled or specified by the highway agency and these should be given careful consideration. Knowledge about the design features identified as being critical to concrete pavement performance will contribute to improved guidelines for the design and construction of long-lived PCC pavements.

    (Book) - In 1993, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) initiated a national program to implement the use of high-performance concrete (HPC) in bridges. The program included the construction of demonstration bridges throughout the United States. In addition, other states have implemented the use of HPC in various bridge elements. The construction of these bridges has provided a large amount of data on the use of HPC. The first part of this project involved collecting and compiling information from each joint State-FHWA HPC bridge project and other HPC bridge projects. The compilation is available on a CD-ROM and includes information on the benefits of HPC, costs, structural design, specified concrete properties, concrete mix proportions, measured properties, associated research projects, sources of data, and specifications. Information from 19 bridges in 14 states is included. A summary of the compiled information is provided in this final report. The second part of this project involved a review of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Standard Specifications for Transportation Materials and Methods of Sampling and Testing, the AASHTO Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges, the AASHTO Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) Bridge Design Specifications, and the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications for provisions that directly impact the use of HPC. The detailed review is included in this report. The third part of the project involved the development of proposed revisions to the AASHTO specifications where sufficient research results exist to support the revisions. Proposed revisions to 15 material specifications, 14 test methods, 30 articles of the standard design specifications, 17 articles of the LRFD design specifications, and 16 articles of the LRFD construction specifications are included in this report. In addition, a new materials specification for combined aggregates and a new test method for slump flow are proposed. Proposed revisions to the FHWA definition of HPC are also included. The fourth part of the project involved the development of specific recommendations for needed research where sufficient results do not exist to support needed changes in the specifications. Six research problem statements related to concrete materials and four research problems related to structural design are recommended.

    (Book) - This synthesis will be of immediate interest to land use and transportation planning officials, with special interest to state, regional, and local planners and administrators who must respond to the requirements of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). The process for incorporating the 15 factors into the comprehensive land use and transportation plans by metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and the 23 factors into statewide plans by state planning agencies is described in this synthesis. Because the planning process is in a constant state of flux and many deadlines have been shifted, this report of the Transportation Research Board represents practice during mid 1994, and includes several case study examples of MPO approaches to addressing the 15 factors in their region. This synthesis provides information on how some agencies have succeeded in incorporating the 15 factors in the early stages of ISTEA implementation; however, it is not intended to be a guideline. Specific issues and concerns, both now and in the future, are highlighted, as are the elements that need to be considered throughout the complex process of responding to ISTEA and the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments requirements.

  495. Contract Time Determination - 11 CTD - May 11, 1981
    (Book) - Transportation agencies must set reasonable times for completion of construction projects. Factors to be considered in determining contract time include materials, equipment, manpower, cost, and constraints such as weather, regulations, traffic, utilities, and user convenience. This report of the Transportation Research Board presents guidelines and recommendations for the establishment and enforcement of contract times. To develop this synthesis in a comprehensive manner and to ensure inclusion of significant knowledge, the Board analyzed available information assembled from numerous sources, including a large number of state highway and transportation departments. A topic panel of experts in the subject area was established to guide the researcher in organizing and evaluating the collected data, and to review the final synthesis report. The conclusions reached in this synthesis include the following: When establishing or modifying a time- estimation procedure, the performance of the procedure should be monitored, the effects of site conditions and terrain should be considered, and information should be obtained from state contractor associations. In determining contract time, a construction data file that covers the previous 3 to 5 yr should be used. The schedule should be reviewed and adjusted to reflect other factors, such as project size, availability of materials, and commitments of the agency engineering and inspection forces. Except for certain projects that must be completed within narrow time limits, there does not appear to be a need for highly restrictive contract duration times. The working- day and calendar-day methods have an advantage over the completion-date method in that the contractor is not liable for circumstances beyond his control; however, the agency must be careful to document each day that is charged. Suggested guidelines include: Agencies should be flexible in establishing contract time. Construction season time limits have merit for some work, particularly for paving and resurfacing projects. Once specified, contract time becomes a contractual condition and should be enforced. Time charges on working- day contracts should be administered uniformly and fairly. It appears desirable and equitable to prescribe liquidated damages for (a) the time that traffic and the public are inconvenienced and (b) supervision costs incurred by the agency. A formal, rational approach should be developed to determine contract time; it should be based on past experience and updated frequently.

  511. Corrosion Resistant Alloys For Reinforced Concrete - 32 CRARC07 - July 01, 2007
    (Book) - Infrastructure deterioration, which includes corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete bridges, has been identified as a major economic and societal cost to the United States. For the past 30 years, epoxy-coated reinforcing steel (ECR) has been specified for reinforced concrete bridges that are exposed to deicing salts and coastal environments. Premature corrosion induced cracking of marine bridge substructures in Florida indicated, however, that ECR is of little benefit for this type of exposure; and while performance of ECR in northern bridge decks has been generally good to-date (30-plus years), still the degree of corrosion resistance to be afforded in the long term to major structures with design lives of 75 to 100 years is uncertain. This concern, combined with increased utilization of life-cycle cost analysis in project planning and materials selection, has caused renewed interest in corrosion resistant reinforcements, stainless steels in particular. The present research study is being jointly performed by the Florida Atlantic University and the Florida Department of Transportation to evaluate alloys that have been identified as candidate corrosion resistant reinforcements. This report details the findings for the initial 3 years of the 5 year project.

  512. Corrosion Resistant Alloys For Reinforced Concrete - 32 CRARC09 - May 01, 2009
    (Book) - Deterioration of concrete bridges because of reinforcing steel corrosion has been recognized for 4-plus decades as a major technical and economic challenge for the United States. As an option for addressing this problem, renewed interest has focused on corrosion resistant reinforcements, stainless steels in particular. The present research study was performed jointly by Atlantic University and the Florida Department of Transportation to evaluate reinforcements of this type. These included solid stainless steels 3Cr12 (UNS-S41003), 2101LDX (ASTM A955-98), 2304 (UNS-S31803), 2205 (UNS 31803), two 316L (UNS S31603) alloys, two 316 stainless steel clad black bar products, and ASTM A1035 commonly known as MMFX 2. Black bar (ASTM A615) reinforcement provided a baseline for comparison purposes. Results from short-term tests and preliminary results from long-term exposure of reinforced concrete slabs were presented in the first interim report for this project. This second interim report provides longer-term data and analyses of chloride exposures that involved four different types of reinforced concrete specimens, two of which were intended to simulate northern bridge decks exposed to deicing salts and the remaining two to marine substructure elements. Three different concrete mix designs were employed, and specimen types included combinations with a (1) simulated concrete crack, (2) bent top bar, (3) corrosion resistant upper bar(s) and black steel lower bars, and (4) intentional clad defects such that the carbon steel substrate was exposed. Cyclic wet-dry ponding with a sodium chloride (NaCl) solution was employed in the case of specimens intended to simulate northern bridge decks, and continuous partial submergence in either a NaCl solution or at a coastal marine site in Florida was used for specimens intended to represent a coastal bridge substructure. The exposures were for periods in excess of 4 years. The candidate alloys were ranked according to performance, and an analysis is reported that projects performance in actual concrete structures.

Cyclic wet-dry ponding with a sodium chloride (NaCl) solution was employed in the case of specimens intended to simulate northern bridge decks, and continuous partial submergence in either a NaCl solution or at a coastal marine site in Florida was used for specimens intended to represent a coastal bridge substructure. The exposures were for periods in excess of 4 years. The candidate alloys were ranked according to performance, and an analysis is reported that projects performance in actual concrete structures.

  526. Covered Bridge Security Manual - 25 CBSM - 2013
    (Book) - The design, construction, and use of covered timber bridges is all but a lost art in these days of pre-stressed concrete, high-performance steel, and the significant growth both in the volume and size of vehicles. Furthermore, many of the existing covered timber bridges are preserved only because of their status on the National Registry of Historic Places or the diligent maintenance and care of the owners of these structures, or both. Of the covered timber bridges that remain in the United States, only a small percentage still stand today because of arson, vandalism, neglect, natural disasters, and other factors. The objective of this work is to provide covered timber bridge owners with the tools to quickly and efficiently design and implement a security system to protect these important historical landmarks. This goal was obtained with an in-depth analysis of equipment based on the practicality in a covered bridge application. Other major considerations required for all equipment to work efficiently within a security system are also fully discussed, including, but not limited to, maintenance, power requirements, and general set-up of an integrated security system. A comprehensive case study is presented involving monitoring systems placed on five of the six covered bridges in Madison County, Iowa, at the end of this report to showcase the abilities of an integrated system and all the decisions that must be made throughout the process for the entire system to work as intended.

It will also be useful to state police, who may also be responsible for routing, and other enforcement personnel, as well as to emergency and fire personnel. The trucking industry will also find the information of value to their operations. Information is presented on the current practices of states for the highway routing of vehicles that transport hazardous materials. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in 1994 issued "Guidelines for Applying Criteria to Designate Routes for Transporting Hazardous Materials," which are used by agencies that elect to designate such routes. This report of the Transportation Research Board is based on information obtained from a survey of states concerning the routing of hazardous materials vehicles that asked respondents to rate the importance of 24 factors in the categories of roadway, environment, population, or other criteria in establishing routing policy. The survey also identified the principal agencies responsible for routing, as well as other agencies that typically participate in the routing plan. Enforcement and cost issues are discussed, as is risk assessment. This report presents a unique discussion of the issues as identified by interviews with trucking trade associations and other organizations involved with hazardous materials transport. In addition, technology applicable to more effective monitoring and enforcement is described. The appendices include commodity flow studies and route designation case studies for selected jurisdictions.

    (Book) - With factors such as an aging and deteriorating national infrastructure, increasing congestion, highway safety challenges, and limited funds weighing heavily on transportation agencies, State departments of transportation are looking for innovative ways to manage their transportation dollars. One tool that is providing great benefits is Transportation Asset Management (TAM), a strategic approach that strives to provide the best return for each dollar invested by maximizing system performance, improving customer satisfaction, and minimizing life-cycle costs. TAM implementation varies from State to State and includes the areas of bridge and pavement management, highway safety and operations, data integration, economics in asset management, life-cycle cost analysis, and network preservation, among others. TAM is also beginning to include often overlooked highway features such as sign structures, culverts, and retaining walls. Because each State’s experience is unique—and because the Federal Highway Administration believes that transportation agencies work more efficiently when information on one another’s successes is shared—the Office of Asset Management is continuing its series of TAM case study reports begun in 2002.

  559. Current And Innovative Solutions To Roadside Revegetation Using Native Plants - 20 CISR - January 01, 2011
    (Book) - The use of native plants in roadside revegetation has evolved as more and more resource management agencies prescribe the practice as a much better approach for ecosystem. However, this practice is not widely used by state and local agencies that are responsible for building majority of the roads. The goals and priorities of those responsible to successfully complete roadside revegetation projects are as diverse as the methods used to accomplish them. Even for the most seasoned revegetation professional, achieving success is not guaranteed. A domestic scan was initiated by the Federal Highway Administration to facilitate understanding about the processes and techniques used in successful and innovative projects that used native plants for roadside revegetation. This report summarizes the observations, discussions and broad conclusions of nationally-recognized revegetation specialists during the 2009 scan tour. A key finding was that there are many interconnected elements involved in both the technical and non-technical aspects of the revegetation process – all of which should be addressed in a project revegetation plan.

  595. Design And Construction Of Pcc Pavements, Volume I: Summary Of Design Features And Construction Practices That Invluence Performance Of Pavements - 50 DCPP1 - March 01, 1998
    (Book) - This report documents recommendations for the design and construction of portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements. The positive outcomes of this study are the recommendations for improving PCC pavement design and the development of prediction models to be used in pavement design and management. A study has been conducted to evaluate and analyze portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements in order to develop recommendations for the design and construction of long-lived concrete pavements. It involved a detailed evaluation and analysis of the PCC pavement data in the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) database using a variety of means to determine the beneficial effects of design features and construction practices on long-term performance. Emphasis was placed on identifying those specific design features that can be included during design to improve the performance of PCC pavements under various combinations of environmental and traffic loading conditions, and for different subgrade support conditions. The study focused on the development of practical recommendations that can be easily implemented by highway agencies to increase pavement life. This volume provides a concise summary of the results that were obtained from the study. It includes an overview of the engineering and statistical analyses that were conducted and presents results that can be used by State highway agencies to obtain high-performance PCC pavements. Implementation of the recommendations will increase the reliability of PCC pavements. This report is the first in a series of three volumes from the study. The other volumes are as follows: FHWA-RD-98-127, Vol II Design Features and Practices That Influence Performance of Pavements and FHWA-RD-98-113, Vol III Improved PCC Performance Models.

  609. Design Of Concrete Overlays Using Existing Methodologies - F24 DCO - May 01, 2011
    (Free Publication) - Over the years, concrete overlay design procedures have been developed by a number of agencies, including the American Association of State Highwayand Transportation Officials (AASHTO),the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), the Portland Cement Association (PCA),the American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA), and various state departments of transportation (DOTs).Each method addresses different types of concrete overlays and involves different inputs, software, strengths, and deficiencies. This technical summary provides an overview of the concrete overlay design process and identifies some of the more sensitive variables inherent with three different procedures: (1) the 1993 AASHTO Guide for Design of Pavement Structures (1993 AASHTO Guide), (2) the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG), and (3) the,ACPA method for bonded concrete overlays on asphalt (BCOA) pavements. The first method, the 1993 AASHTO Guide, is the procedure most commonly ,used today for concrete overlay thickness design. The MEPDG is currently being implemented and evaluated by numerous state DOTs and is therefore included here. Finally, the ACPA BCOA method is presented to address the unique behavior of thinner BCOA, which is not captured by the first two methods.

  612. Design Of Sedimentation Basins - 20 DSB - May 11, 1980
    (Book) - Sedimentation basins are useful for minimizing the effects of highway construction runoff on the environment and are often used in conjunction with other sediment-control practices. A sedimentation basin protects streams, lakes, recreation areas, and other areas that cannot tolerate sediment deposition. There are three types of sedimentation basins--expedient, temporary, and permanent. Expedient basins are quite small, exist for only a short time (possibly only one night), and their sites are determined by the engineer during grading operations. Temporary basins remain in place for the entire duration of a construction project or until the need for them clearly has passed. Their locations are usually shown on the plans, and they are built to a higher standard than expedient basins. Permanent basins are used to intercept sediment during construction but remain after construction for other uses such as recreation, scenic enhancement, floodwater detention, or groundwater recharge. There are two design philosophies for sedimentation basins. According to one, a basin shall not discharge during small, frequent runoffs but shall be allowed to discharge during major storms. These basins are designed to trap all sediment (except from major storms) and are cleaned out often, probably after each storm. Adherents to the second philosophy hold that a basin operates as a detention reservoir while sediment is deposited by flow moving slowly through. Calculation of basin size requires information about the drainage area that includes erosion characteristics, surface cover and condition, and length and steepness of slopes. For the flow- detention philosophy, the designer will also need to estimate the sediment volume to be stored (using a rule of thumb or the universal soil loss equation), determine the percentage of eroded volume that will reach the basin, and estimate the efficiency of the basin in trapping sediment. Then the height of the dam can be calculated and the principal and emergency spillways can be designed.

  621. Determination Of Frost Penetration In Ltpp Sections, Final Report - 50 DFP - September 01, 1999
    (Book) - To better understand the environmental factors and their effects on pavement performance, the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Seasonal Monitoring Program (SMP) was initiated during 1992. Sixty-four LTPP pavement sections were identified to be included in the SMP. These sections are monitored frequently to acquire data on seasonal variation in pavement conditions. As part of this program, work is being performed to identify and monitor the freeze state in the base, subbase, and subgrade at the SMP sections located in the freeze zone in the United States and Canada. This work makes use of temperature sensors and electrical resistivity techniques. The main goal of the study reported here was to determine frost penetration at the selected SMP sections. As part of the study, an interactive computer program, FROST, was developed to facilitate the interpretation of the electrical resistivity and temperature data. Analysis results include the freeze state at each electrical resistivity sensor and the frost penetration at each site. As part of the overall LTPP data analysis effort, it is expected that the information on the seasonal variation in the freeze state in the unbound base, subbase, and subgrade will be used to develop improved understanding of the seasonal variation in the load-carrying capacity of pavements and the subsequent effect on pavement performance.

  624. Determining Soil Volumetric Moisture Content Using Time Domain Reflectometry - 50 DSVMCUTD - February 01, 1998
    (Book) - Time domain reflectometry (TDR) is a technique used to measure indirectly the in situ volumetric moisture content of soil. Current research provides a variety of prediction equations that estimate the volumetric moisture content using the dielectric constant calculated from the apparent length obtained from the TDR reader. However, very limited research exists regarding which of several available procedures should be used to obtain the apparent length of the TDR response for use in calculating the dielectric constant. The purpose of this study is to enhance the predictive accuracy of in situ volumetric moisture content estimation from TDR measurements. The study is divided into two phases. The initial phase evaluates the five known methods of analyzing the apparent length of TDR responses to determine which provides the most accurate method for estimating the volumetric moisture content. Phase II, through a mixing model form, regresses the volumetric properties of the soil and the apparent length of the TDR response to obtain a predicted volumetric moisture content.

  686. Durability Of Segmental Retaining Wall Blocks: Final Report - 60 DSRWB - April 01, 2007
    (Book) - Segmental retaining wall (SRW) systems are commonly and successfully used in a range of applications, including highway projects. Their popularity can be attributed to a combination of reduced construction costs, versatility, aesthetic appearance, ease of installation, and an increasing number of proprietary designs available in the market. Despite these inherent advantages, there have been some reported problems with durability of SRW blocks in cold climates. The deterioration of some SRW installations in State highway agency (SHA) applications has resulted in concern over the long-term performance of SRW systems and has led to stricter specifications and, in some cases, restrictions on future use of SRW systems. In response to these concerns, a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)-funded research project was initiated to determine the cause and extent of SRW block distress, to identify and recommend test methods for improving durability of SRW systems, and to recommend specifications for SHAs to ensure long-term durability and performance of SRW systems in highway applications. This report summarizes the key findings of this project and provides guidance on producing durable SRW blocks to ensure long-term performance of SRW systems in highway applications.

  702. Effect Of Weldments On The Fatigue Strength Of Steel Beams - 30 EWFSSB - May 11, 1970
    (Book) - THE FATIGUE FRACTURES OBSERVED IN THE COVER-PLATED STEEL BEAM BRIDGES OF THE AASHO ROAD TEST AND IN OTHER SIMILAR STRUCTURES EMPHASIZE THE IMPORTANT EFFECT OF WELDING AND WELDED DETAILS ON THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF HIGHWAY BEAM OR GIRDER BRIDGES. A REVIEW WAS MADE OF EXISTING FATIGUE DATA TO DEVELOP MATHEMATICAL RELATIONSHIPS TO DEFINE WITH STATISTICAL CONFIDENCE THE FATIGUE STRENGTH OF ROLLED AND WELDED BEAMS, ROLLED AND WELDED BEAMS WITH COVERPLATES, AND WELDED BEAMS WITH FLANGE SPLICES. STATISTICALLY VALID EXPERIMENTS WERE DEVELOPED THAT PERMITTED FORMULATION OF MATHEMATICAL RELATIONSHIPS RELATING THE FATIGUE BEHAVIOR OF BEAMS TO DESIGN DETAILS, APPLIED STRESSES, AND TYPES OF STEELS. DURING THE RESEARCH PROGRAM, 374 BEAM SPECIMENS WERE TESTED UNDER CONSTANT-AMPLITUDE CYCLIC LOADING. PILOT FATIGUE STUDIES ON VARIABLE-AMPLITUDE CYCLIC LOADING WERE ALSO CONDUCTED, USING NOTCHED BAR SPECIMENS. VALUES OF STRESS RANGE FOR SPECIFICATION PROVISIONS SHOULD BE BASED ON CONFIDENCE LIMITS. THE STUDY SHOWS THAT THE CURRENTLY USED FATIGUE PROVISIONS ARE NOT SATISFACTORY FOR A36 AND A441 STEEL ROLLED BEAMS. NEITHER ARE THEY SATISFACTORY FOR PLAIN WELDED BEAMS, COVER-PLATED BEAMS, AND FLANGE SPLICES OF A36, A441, AND A514 STEEL. STRESS RANGE ALONE ACCOUNTS FOR THE VARIATION IN CYCLE LIFE. THE FATIGUE STRENGTH OF A GIVEN WELDED DETAIL IS INDEPENDENT OF THE STRENGTH OF THE STEEL. TESTS OF ROLLED A36 AND A441 STEEL BEAMS YIELDED ABOUT THE SAME FATIGUE STRENGTH. WEB-TO-FLANGE FILLET WELDS CANNOT BE NEGLECTED AND THE BEAM CONSIDERED AS BASE METAL FOR PURPOSES OF FATIGUE DESIGN. THIS ASSUMPTION WOULD GROSSLY OVERSTATE THE FATIGUE STRENGTH OF PLAIN WELDED BEAMS. VARIATIONS IN COVER-PLATE GEOMETRY HAVE NEGLIGIBLE EFFECT ON END-WELDED COVER PLATES. COVER PLATES WIDER THAN THE FLANGE TO WHICH THEY ARE ATTACHED WILL RESULT IN A DECREASE IN FATIGUE STRENGTH UNLESS TRANSVERSE END WELDS ARE USED. THE RESULTS OF STUDIES ON PLAIN ROLLED BEAMS DID NOT CORRELATE WITH EXISTING STUDIES ON PLATE SPECIMENS. THE EMPIRICAL EXPONENTIAL MODEL RELATING STRESS RANGE TO CYCLE LIFE WAS OBSERVED TO PROVIDE THE BEST FIT TO THE TEST DATA FOR ALL BEAM SERIES. SUITABLE MATHEMATICAL DESIGN RELATIONSHIPS CAN BE DEVELOPED FOR ANY DESIRED LIFE FROM THE MATHEMATICAL MODELS RELATING STRESS RANGE TO CYCLE LIFE.

  709. Effectiveness Of Subsurface Drainage - 22 ESD - May 11, 1996
    (Book) - Since early roadway construction, pavement surface drainage has been an important consideration in design. For the last 20 years, it has been realized that consideration of subsurface drainage is not only critical, but it is also essential in maintaining the design life of today's roadways. In the past it has been difficult to quantify the effectiveness of surface drainage. Much work has been and is being done currently to develop models and methods for doing this. Currently two efforts are ongoing through the National Cooperative Highway Research Program to provide up-to-date information and methods for design agencies to use in evaluating the effectiveness of subsurface drainage. The seven papers in this volume, which were presented at the 1996 Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board, provide both theoretical and field evaluations of the effectiveness of subsurface drainage in extending the life of the roadway system.

  713. Effects Of Traffic-induced Vibrations On Bridge-deck Repair - 25 ETI - December 01, 1981
    (Book) - As the number of bridges requiring rehabilitation increases, engineers are faced more frequently with the decision on whether to close a bridge to traffic while repairs are carried out. Most agencies maintain traffic on a deck during construction of a concrete overlay or widening, although several impose speed and weight restrictions on vehicles. Vehicles cause bridges to vibrate which in turn can be detrimental to fresh concrete repairs and overlays thereby increasing maintenance costs. Although overlays appear vulnerable to cracking and debonding under the action of traffic induced vibrations, none of the identified defects has been found to be attributable to traffic on the deck at the time of construction.

    (Book) - An environmentally sensitive road maintenance practice is a practice that when implemented reduces the adverse effect of a road on the environment by treating the cause of the problem and is in keeping with the natural landscape. The goal of this field guide is to provide examples of environmentally sensitive maintenance practices, which if implemented reduce erosion and sediment, maintain subsurface hydrologic connectivity, restore drainage density to more natural conditions, and eliminate diversion potential. Additionally environmentally sensitive maintenance practices reduce long term aintenance costs and lengthen maintenance cycles. To achieve this goal, the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Pennsylvania State University’s Center for Dirt and Gravel Roads, have established a simple protocol to help road managers and maintenance practitioners to: carefully assess road conditions; identify problems; determine cause; and select the appropriate environmentally sensitive practices that fit the site conditions.

  753. Equipment For Obtaining Pavement Condition And Traffic Loading Data - 5 EOPCTLD - May 11, 1986
    (Book) - Equipment is identified that is associated with the collection of structural capacity, surface distress, friction, roughness, and traffic loading data. Current practices costs, and maintenance requirements are presented. Advantages and disadvantages of particular types of equipment are also presented and new equipment developments are briefly discussed. Currently, structural capacity is evaluated by a measure of surface deflection under a slow-moving, vibrating, or falling load. The Benkelman beam is the most commonly used equipment. Techniques for measuring physical distress and types of distress catalogued vary by agency and depend on the purpose for which the information is collected. Pavement surface friction is mostly measured with the locked-wheel-trailer procedure or the yaw mode procedure. Ride quality is related to the roughness of the pavement and is measured by either response-type equipment or profilometer. Equipment for collecting traffic volume and traffic weights are portable counters, fixed counters, weigh-in-motion devices, portable scales, and permanent weigh stations.

  774. Evaluating Naturally Durable Wood Species For Repair And Rehabilitation Of Above-ground Components Of Covered Bridges - 30 ENDW - 2013
    (Book) - More than 1,500 covered bridges remain in the United States. They are a unique part of our history; thus, replacement of bridge components is an equally important part of preserving this uncommon style of craftsmanship. The goal of this project was to evaluate seven wood species for their durability in above-ground field exposure. Chemical analysis was also conducted using gas chromatography?mass spectrometry (GS?MS) for fatty acids and terpenoids in an attempt to correlate extractive content with durability. Extracts removed from the durable wood species were also tested in laboratory bioassays to determine their biological activity against wood decay fungi and termites. This report serves as a guide for the use of these naturally durable wood species for rehabilitation of above-ground components of covered bridges and incorporates the results of field and laboratory tests into the final recommendations.

  784. Evaluation Of Bridge Deck Protective Strategies - 25 EBDPS - May 11, 1987
    (Book) - This report documents existing knowledge on the effectiveness of different common strategies for protecting bridge decks against deterioration caused by deicing salts. The strategies considered are: (1) increased cover to the top bar; (2) low-slump dense concrete overlay; (3) latex-modified concrete overlay; (4) interlayer membrane/asphalt concrete system; and (5) epoxy-coated bars. Performance information on those strategies was obtained through literature reviews, a nationwide survey of state transportation departments, and visits to protected decks in selected states. That information was expressed in terms of deck durability (scaling, wearing and overlay stripping), effectiveness in preventing reinforcing bar corrosion, and concrete cracking. The information was analyzed for factors affecting the likely service life of a protected bridge, for costs to achieve a 50-year deck life, and for the relative effectiveness of a certain strategy or combination of strategies. For normal levels of salt application, cost-effective protection strategies can be designed that provide 50 years or more of bridge deck service life free of corrosion-induced deterioration. Epoxy-coating both the top and bottom reinforcing mats is the most cost-effective way of assuring a 50-year or more corrosion-free life.

  825. Fatigue Evaluation Procedures For Steel Bridges - 25 FEPSB - May 11, 1987
    (Book) - This report presents a fatigue evaluation procedure for existing steel highway bridges and a compatible fatigue design procedure for new steel highway bridges. Both procedures realistically characterize the actual fatigue stress and cyclic conditions in bridges. Both procedures use the same detail categories and corresponding fatigue strength data as the present AASHTO specifications; they also use methods of calculating stress ranges that are similar to present AASHTO methods. The evaluation procedure, which is recommended for inclusion in the AASHTO Manual for Maintenance-Inspection of Bridges, gives accurate estimates of the remaining mean and safe fatigue lives and permits these estimates to be updated in the future to reflect changes in traffic conditions. An alternative procedure is also given for monitoring the accumulated fatigue damage during the life of the bridge; it is intended for use in conjunction with the routine inspections that are normally conducted at two-year intervals. An assessment of remaining fatigue life is needed in bridge management systems to assist in scheduling inspection, maintenance, rehabilitation and replacement. It is also useful in evaluating administrative and legislative policies such as truck-weight and overload policies. The design procedure, which is recommended for inclusion in the AASHTO Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges, is consistent with the evaluation procedure and utilizes many of the same concepts. However, it is presented in a format convenient for design; a calculated design stress range is compared with a permissible stress range corresponding to a desired safe design life. The procedure is much more flexible than present AASHTO fatigue procedures; it permits rigorous analysis methods and designs for any desired design life, initial truck volume, and truck-volume growth rate.

  827. Fatigue Strength Of High-yield Reinforcing Bars - 30 FSHYRB - May 11, 1976
    (Book) - The stress range to which a reinforcing bar is subjected is the primary factor determining its fatigue life. For design purposes, there is a limiting stress range, the fatigue limit, above which a reinforcing bar will have a finite fatigue life and is certain to fracture. At stress ranges below the fatigue limit, a reinforcing bar will have a long fatigue life and may be able to sustain a virtually unlimited number of stress cycles. The magnitude of the fatigue limit depends on the minimum stress during each stress cycle and on the shape of the deformatins rolled onto the bar surface. It may also depend on the diameter and the grade of the bar. Increasing a tensile minimum stress was found to result in a decrease in fatigue strength. On the other hand the fatigue was found to incrase with an increasing compressive minimum stress. Bar diameter and grade of bar were found to influence the finite-life fatigue strength of reinforcing bars. The existence of a long-life fatigue effect due to these variables could not be established. Larger size bars have a lowered fatigue strength while higher grade bars have an increased fatigue strength. The effect of lug geometry on fatigue strength was found to be coupled with that of bar diameter. The larger the bar diameter, the greater was the effect of lug geometry.

  828. Fatigue Strength Of Steel Beams With Welded Stiffeners And Attachments - 30 FSSBWSA - May 11, 1974
    (Book) - This research (which is the second phase of a study intended to provide reliable information on fatigue behavior of steel bridge members), and an extensive investigation of fatigue effects in welded steel beams, which formed the basis for recommendations for revision of the fatigue provisions of the AASHP Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges. A hundred and fifty seven steel beams and girders were fabricated and tested to define the fatigue strength of various structural details, including stiffeners and attachments. Stress range was observed for nearly all the variation in cycle life for all stiffener and a attachment details examined in this study. For purposes of design the the fatigue strength of ASTN A514 steel rolled beams was found to be about the same as A36 and A441 steel rolled beams. The stress range-cycle life relationship described the fatigue strength for all three grades of steel. The beam bending stress range at the held toe termination was found to dominate the fatigue strength of full-depth stiffener details welded to the web alone. The bending stress range at the stiffener-to-flange weld defined the strength for stiffeners welded to the web and the flanges. For design purposes, the same fatigue strength values are applicable to transverse stiffeners welded to the web and the tension flange. The allowable bending stress range at the termination of the flange weld toe is the same as for stiffeners welded to the web alone. The magnitude of shear need not be considered when determining the allowable bending stress range for fatigue of full-depth stiffeners welded to the web alone. The welding of transverse stiffeners to the tension flange, the addition of new design categories to the AASHO specifications, fatigue crack growth, and the attachment of diagonal bracing to transverse stiffeners are other aspects which were studied. The empirical exponential model relating stress range to cycle life provided the best fit to the test data. A theoretical stress analysis based on the fracture mechanics of crack growth confirmed the suitability of the empirical regression models. The theoretical analysis also provided a means of rationally explaining the observed behavior and permitted the effect of other variables such as plate thickness and initial crack size to be examined in a rational manner.

  860. Field Observations And Evaluations Of Streambed Scour At Bridges - 25 FOESSB - May 01, 2005
    (Book) - The variability and complexity of site conditions make it difficult to develop methodology for predicting scour at bridges. Laboratory investigations often oversimplify or ignore many complexities common in the field. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration and many State highway agencies, has collected and compiled field data on scour at bridges at 79 sites located in 17 States. These data have been analyzed to isolate pier scour, contraction scour, and abutment scour. The national data base contains 493 local pier scour measurements, 18 contraction scour measurements, and 12 abutment scour measurements. The pier scour measurements were used to evaluate 26 published pier scour equations. The Froehlich Design, HEC-18, HEC-18-K4, HEC-18-K4Mu, HEC-18-K4Mo (>2 millimeter), and Mississippi equations proved to be better than the other equations for predicting pier scour for design purposes. However, comparison of the scour predicted from these equations with the observed scour clearly shows that variability in the field data is not correctly accounted for in the equations. Relations between dimensionless variables developed from laboratory experiments did not compare well with the field data. Analysis of the pier scour data indicated the importance of bed-material characteristics as a variable in the predictive equations. A new K4 term for the HEC-18 pier-scour equation was developed based on the relative bed-material size (b/D50) where b = pier width and D50 is the median bed material. A review of published literature found 29 references to abutment and contraction scour data; however, only a few provided complete data sets. Published comparisons of observed versus computed scour were inconclusive. A detailed comparison of computed contraction and abutment scour with field observations for two sites in Minnesota was also inconclusive. The current methodology for computing scour depth provides reasonable estimates of the maximum total scour, but the individual estimates of contraction and abutment scour did not compare well with the observed data. The accuracy of the contraction and abutment scour equations may depend on the degree of contraction, the flow distribution in and configuration of the approach, and how well the hydraulic model represents the true flow distribution.

  892. Formulating And Justifying Highway Maintenance Budgets - 11 FJHMB - May 11, 1981
    (Book) - There are three basic types of highway maintenance budgets in general use: line-item, lump-sum and program/performance. Line-item maintenance budgets are established on the basis of money instead of work to be accomplished. Lump-sum budget funds are appropriated in one lump-sum for maintenance purposes. A program budget is based on work programs which are subdivided into activities such a crack sealing or pothole patching. Justification of the maintenance budgets is based on the importance of the highway network, the demands of users and abutting property owners and the consequences of insufficient maintenance. Also needed is the development of budget tools to relate maintenance expenditures to long-term benefits, cost effective maintenance strategies and objective procedures to establish priorities among maintenance deficiencies.

  897. Freeze-thaw Resistance Of Concrete With Marginal Air - 32 FTRC - December 01, 2006
    (Book) - Freeze–thaw resistance is a key durability factor for concrete pavements. Recommendations for the air void system parameters are normally 6% ± 1% total air and spacing factor ≤ 0.20 mm (0.008 in.). However, it was observed that some concretes that did not possess these commonly accepted thresholds presented good freeze–thaw resistance in laboratory studies. A study evaluated the freeze–thaw resistance of several marginal air void mixes, with two different types of air-entraining admixtures: a Vinsol resin admixture and a synthetic admixture. The study used rapid cycles of freezing and thawing in plain water, in the absence of deicing salts. For specific materials and concrete mixture proportions used in this project, the marginal air mixes (concretes with fresh air contents of 3.5% or higher) presented an adequate freeze–thaw performance when Vinsol resin–based air-entraining admixture was used. The synthetic admixture used in the study did not show the same good performance as the Vinsol resin admixture did.

  898. Freezing And Thawing Resistance Of High-strength Concrete - 32 FTRHSC - May 11, 1986
    (Book) - Recent developments have made a new generation of high-strength concrete a viable material for routine construction. The two principal developments are high-range water-reducing admixtures, which permit the placement of concrete of very low water-cement ratio, and silica fume, a pozzolan of extremely high fineness. The advent of this high-strength concrete has put requirements for strength and durability in conflict. Because entrained air reduces the strength of concrete, builders seek to eliminate or limit the use of entrained air. There are those who argue that high-strength concrete is of such a quality that entrained air is unnecessary. Much of the high-strength concrete currently being used is in buildings, where the question of durability is minor. The question, however, cannot be avoided in exposed highway structures. Service records of non-air-entrained high-strength concrete exposed to freezing are not conclusive. Hence, this report synthesizes the available knowledge on the subject. Its aim is to provide guidance to those who wish to use high-strength concrete in typical highway applications and to indicate where further information is needed.

  901. Freight Transportation Planning Practices In The Public Sector - 12 FTPPPS - May 11, 1996
    (Book) - This synthesis describes the process by which state departments of transportation and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) integrate freight planning into the surface transportation planning process. It will be of interest to state and MPO planners, port planners; traffic engineers; and to the trucking, rail, and shipping interests in both the public and private sectors. This report of the Transportation Research Board discusses the requirements for freight planning resulting from the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) with particular emphasis on the development of an intermodal management system (IMS). In addition, that act narrowed the application of the congestion management system (CMS), which is also discussed in the synthesis. Since enactment of that legislation, another act, the National Highway System Designation Act of 1995 was passed and makes the IMS optional rather than mandatory. This has not changed the philosophy or the intent of these planning applications, but it has changed the implementation aspects. Many agencies, however, are continuing with the IMS and CMS planning process. This report describes the methods used by selected agencies for forecasting freight flows, data collection practices, and the techniques for integrating freight planning into the established surface transportation planning processes at the state and regional levels.

  973. Guide For In-place Treatment Of Wood In Historic Covered And Modern Bridges - F50 GTWH - Published date unavailable
    (Free Publication) - Historic covered bridges and current timber bridges can be vulnerable to damage from biodeterioration or fire. This guide describes procedures for selecting and applying in-place treatments to prevent or arrest these forms of degradation. Vulnerable areas for biodeterioration in covered bridges include members contacting abutments, members near the ends of bridges subject to wetting from splashing and members below windows or other openings that allow entry of wind-blown precipitation. Pressure-treated timber bridge members can be vulnerable when untreated wood is exposed by field fabrication or by the development of drying checks. The objective of an in-place preservative treatment is to distribute preservative into areas of a structure that are vulnerable to moisture accumulation and/or not protected by the original pressure treatment. Types of field treatments range from finishes, to boron rods or pastes, to fumigants. A limitation of in-place treatments is that they cannot be forced deeply into the wood as is done in pressure-treatment processes. However, some can be applied into the center of large members via treatment holes. These preservatives may be available as liquids, rods or pastes. Bridge members can be treated with fire retardants to delay ignition, reduce heat release, and slow the spread of flames. In-place coating products are available to reduce surface flammability, but these coatings may need to be reapplied on a regular basis if exposed to weathering. For more integrated protection, fire retardant treatment of bridge members may be combined with other forms of protection such as lights, alarms, sprinklers and monitoring systems.

  1012. Guidelines For Sampling, Assessing, And Restoring Defective Grout In Prestressed Concrete Bridge Post-tensioning Ducts - F32 GSAR - 2013
    (Free Publication) - Post-tensioned (PT) tendons have been widely utilized in concrete bridges in the United States. The advantages of PT bridges compared to bridges constructed using conventional reinforcement include greater span length, structural efficiency, reduced materials, and a more streamlined appearance. However, PT tendons can be susceptible to corrosion and ultimately failure if physical deficiencies (PDs) or chemical deficiencies (CDs) are present. Examples of PDs include separation, segregation, presence of soft material, and free water, while an example of a CD includes concentrations of chloride that exceed the allowable limit as specified by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials and other specifications. The failure of a few tendons can compromise overall structural integrity.

  1022. Guidelines For Ultrasonic Inspection Of Hanger Pins - 25 GUIHP - July 01, 2004
    (Book) - A failed hanger pin initiated the tragic collapse of one span of the Mianus River Bridge in Greenwich, CT on June 28, 1983, resulting in the deaths of three motorists. Following the collapse, there was an immediate increase of interest in the inspection and condition evaluation of bridge hanger pins. Ultrasonic inspection has become the primary method of performing detailed inspection of in-service hanger pins. The document describes the fundamentals of ultrasonic testing and general inspection requirements that can be used by State transportation agencies or by others performing ultrasonic hanger pin inspection. In addition, five hanger pins, with known defects, were inspected to emphasize and more completely explain some important aspects of ultrasonic hanger pin inspection. Items included in the fundamental review are the pulse-echo technique, pitch-catch technique, decibel scale, piezoelectric effect, beam diffraction, beam absorption, beam spread (beam divergence), beam centerline location, and distance amplitude correction. Items included in the general inspection requirement section are cleaning and coupling requirements, interpretation of signals, defect sizing techniques, effect of wear grooves, phenomena of acoustic coupling, inspection documentation, data collection, and inspector qualifications and certifications. Results from the experimental program include beam diffraction graphs, distance amplitude correction curves, sensitivity analysis of straight and angled beams, defect sizing analysis, and verification of the acoustic coupling phenomena.

  1028. Guidelines On The Use Of Positive Protection In Temporary Traffic Control Zones - 50 GUPP - Published date unavailable
    (Book) - This document summarizes available guidance on the use of positive protection in temporary traffic control zones and provides a decision support tool on the use of various positive protection devices. It is a companion to a document titled "Work Zone Positive Protection Toolbox"1 produced by the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Work Zone Safety Grant. While the toolbox provides both specific information on the various types of positive protection devices currently in use, and guidance on where and how each is typically used, this document provides additional detail on how to determine when positive protection may be warranted. The determination of when to use positive protection is typically based on either a project-specific engineering study or agency guidelines (which also should be based on an engineering study). Both the project-specific study and agency guidelines typically consider the actual conditions expected to be encountered in the work zone combined with the characteristics of the various devices that may be available. The Roadside Design Guide (RDG) states that "the design and selection of work-zone safety features should be based on expected operating speeds and proximity of vehicles to workers and pedestrians." Additional factors that may impact the decision are provided in these guidelines. This document is organized into three sections. The first section provides information on the various types of devices and their features. The second section includes information that should be considered in determining the need for positive protection and locations and project types where positive protection may provide benefit. The third section includes decision support tools (Table 1 and Chart 1) for use in determining the most appropriate positive protection device(s) based on project characteristics.

  1084. Highway Uses Of Epoxy With Concrete - 32 HUEWC - May 11, 1984
    (Book) - Many agencies have used epoxies since 1954 for various purposes such as bonding concrete, filling cracks, anchoring bolts, etc. The results of this use has varied depending primarily on its application. Reasons for its success or failure are noted. An epoxy is made by mixing a resin with a curing agent. Many different resins, curing agents, and modifiers are available. The type and amount of curing agent modifier used affects the properties of the aired epoxy system. Among the properties that are affected are viscosity, cure rate, shrinkage, flexibility, plasticity, thermal expansion, strength, and appearance. Specifications and tests for epoxies have been developed by AASHTO, ASTM and ACI. This publication reviews highway uses of eposy, and discusses in detail, the material itself--it's handling, it's properties, tests and specifications. A conclusion, references, and bibliography are also included.

  1100. Hollow Bar Soil Nails: Pullout Test Program - 60 HBSN - May 01, 2010
    (Book) - The use of Hollow Bar Soil Nails (HBSNs) is growing in the excavation support and retaining wall construction. It is anticipated that the use of the HBSN technology could reduce construction schedules, costs, and environmental impacts. The current state of practice for design bond strengths and load testing procedures is based on the current soil nail practice but varies depending on the installation contractor and product recommendations. The objective of this study was two-fold. The first objective was to develop an initial data file from installation and testing at four sites of the available grout-to-ground bond stress of HBSNs, and to determine if correlations exist with traditional solid bar, drill, and grout soil nails (for example, the published nominal values in FHWA-IF-03-017 [GEC No. 7]). The second objective was to establish recommendations for practical, standard ways of performing pullout tests on HBSNs. Comparisons between the pullout test results showed that the HBSNs generally developed larger bond strength values in granular soils than the SBSNs. Three installation methods for purposes of pullout and proof testing were evaluated. Of which two were found to be to be satisfactory; however, the third one noted to have a significant Doughnut Effect and was not recommended for pullout testing. Test results of the four sites are included in detail on the attached CD ROM.

  1101. Hollow Bar Soil Nails: Review Of Corrosion Factors & Mitigation Practice - 60 HB - August 01, 2010
    (Book) - Hollow bar soil nails (HBSNs) have been used in the United States in earth retention systems for over 10 years. HBSNs are commonly used in place of solid bar soil nails (SBSNs) when the solid bar installation would require temporary casing of the hole. This report presents the results of an industry-wide survey including agencies, designers, consultants,manufacturers and contractors related to installation of HBSNs and practices with respect to corrosion aspects. Based on the responses it was found that a lack of guidance on corrosion protection is limiting the use of HBSNs for permanent applications in corrosive environments. There are numerous contributing factors that may lead to corrosion of HBSNs. These factors are identified in this report along with a review of the current corrosion mitigation guidance. Parameters to be evaluated in formal corrosion studies are outlined. Finally, recommendations for interim corrosion mitigation guidance and further studies are provided.

  1145. Improved Concretes For Corrosion Resistance - 25 ICC - May 01, 1997
    (Book) - A major cause of concrete deterioration on bridge structures is the corrosion of the embedded steel reinforcement. In response to the continued problem of corrosion, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) initiated this research aimed at (1) quantifying the corrosive conditions fostering concrete bridge deterioration and (2) identifying concrete materials which consistently provide superior performance when used in bridge applications. The experimental phase of this research project was divided into three tasks: Task A - Corrosive Environment Studies, Task B - Concrete Chemical and Physical Properties, and Task C - Long-Term Corrosion Performance. This Interim Report reviews the results of Tasks A and B and provides recommendations for performing Task C. In Task A, laboratory experiments were conducted to characterize the corrosive environment and to establish boundary conditions for environmental variables of moisture content, chloride concentration, and temperature. Special test specimen design and test procedures were developed to permit uniform chloride diffusion to the steel surface. A full factorial matrix of experiments was performed for three levels each of chloride concentration, relative humidity, and temperature. A regression model was developed to predict corrosion rate and corrosion potential as a function of environment for two different concretes. In Task B, experiments were performed to identify the chemical components of concretes and to determine how they effect corrosion induced deterioration of concrete structures. The dependent variables of interest in examining corrosion induced deterioration of concrete are corrosion rate, corrosion potential, chloride permeability, electrical resistivity, and physical properties. The independent concrete design mix variables examined included: water-cement ratio, air content, coarse aggregate type, fine aggregate type, mineral admixture, and cement type. Because of the large number of independent variables and the number of levels of interest for the variables, an optimized experimental design was developed to permit the estimate of the main-effect terms for each independent variable. Models were developed to predict the effect of the independent variables on corrosion rate and corrosion potential in each of two environments, chloride permeability, resistivity, and compressive strength. The data developed were used to make recommendations for the concretes to be tested in the Task C long-term experiments.

  1146. Improved Corrosion-resistant Steel For Highway Bridge Construction - 50 ICRS - 2011
    (Book) - Plate girder bridges are usually fabricated from painted carbon steels or unpainted weathering steels. Weathering steels, including the modern high-performance steels, offer the lowest lifecycle cost (LCC) over the design life of the bridge because ongoing maintenance due to steel deterioration is not necessary in most service environments. However, in areas where a bridge is subject to high time-of-wetness or high chloride exposures (i.e., coastal areas or areas where large quantities of deicing salt are used), weathering steels are not effective because the protective patina does not develop, and the steel has a high corrosion rate. In these conditions, structural stainless steel ASTM A1010 (UNS S41003) provides sufficient corrosion protection so that painting is not necessary, and the bridge structure is maintenance-free during its design life.(1) The initial cost of stainless steel is more than twice the cost of carbon or weathering steel. Reducing the cost of stainless steel would improve the LCC of bridges in severe corrosion service conditions. This study was undertaken to identify steels with lower potential cost than ASTM A1010 that could be candidates for bridge construction while still providing low corrosion rates.
