APPLICATION AND DESIGN RAMIFICATIONS OF ASCE SEISMIC PROVISIONS ON CURRENT CALTRANS AND AASHTO DESIGNED BASED PROJECTS

This paper compares and evaluates the impact that the seismic design provisions in the proposed ASCE Standard, "Design Loads on Structures During Construction" have on current Caltrans and AASHTO based projects. The proposed ASCE Standard is compared against the current AASHTO and CALTRANS recommendations for seismic design loads during staged construction. The comparison focuses on several areas - the design philosophy behind the derivation of seismic demand and the context of usage. The comparison is followed by recommendations for future work.
