This design aid for engineers presents tables and details of designs made in accordance with the "Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges of the American Association of State Highway Officials." Moments, beam and cover plate sizes, deflections, shear connector spacing, superstructure quantities and reactions are tabulated for rolled beam bridges using USS COR-TEN B (ASTM A588, grade A) high-strength low-alloy atmospheric corrosion-resistant steel and astm A36 structural carbon steel. Drawings illustrate typical details for diaphragms, bearings, beam splices, crest-in-place and precast concrete decks, expansion joints and guardrials.
