  • Abstract:
    This manual was written as a guide for use by design personnel in the Vermont Agency of Transportation Structures Section. This manual covers the design responsibilities of the Section. It does not cover other functions that are a part of the Structures Section responsibilities. Excluded functions include bridge inventory and inspection, administrative supervision, the use of computers for structures design, and personnel policies and procedures. The manual is organized to follow the normal flow of work within project development and design. It implements System International Units (SI) by including them in parentheses after the English system units. Part I covers the general administrative and production related duties. It addresses how the Structures Section operates within the Vermont State government. It describes the resources available to Section personnel. Part II outlines the process from project initiation through the post-construction duties performed by the Section. The Section actively participates in the step system that the Agency has adopted. Each Chapter in this part of the manual describes a particular step and the duties of the designer in completing that step. To further assist the designer, this part of the Manual is organized in chronological order. Part III contains the design criteria that the Section has adopted. This Section is organized in the same order as the AASHTO Standard Specification for Highway Bridges. As with AASHTO, this part includes topics such as general design criteria, concrete design, steel design and more. Part IV will be valuable in the final steps of the project. It describes how the Section calculates and quantifies project quantities. In addition, it describes the process for developing estimates. Index, 7 appendices, 334p.
