AASHTO Guide Specifications for Seismic Isolation Design

AASHTO Guide Specifications for Seismic Isolation Design 3rd Edition The Guide Specifications for Seismic Isolation Design 3rd Edition, addresses major changes in the way seismic hazard is now defined in the United States, as well as changes in the state of the art of seismic isolation design for highway bridges.

AASHTO Guide Specifications for Seismic Isolation Design It also reflects changes in the definition of the seismic hazard as now defined in the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications and the Guide Specifications for LRFD Seismic Bridge Design, industry trends in the design and construction of isolators, and provisions in the design specifications that impact the design and testing of isolation bearings

This 2009 Edition of the AASHTO Guide Specifications for Seismic Isolation Design updates the 1999 Edition by addressing major changes in the way seismic hazard is now defined in the United States, as well as changes in the state of the art of seismic isolation design for highway bridges. This Edition is based on the work of NCHRP Project 20-7, Task 262.

In summary, this revised edition reflects AASHTO Guide Specifications for Seismic Isolation Design

(a) changes in the definition of the seismic hazard as now defined in the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (hereafter referred to as the Design Specifications) and the Guide Specifications for LRFD Seismic Bridge Design (hereafter referred to as LRFD Seismic),

(b) designer experience in the last 10 yr with the implementation of the current specifications,

(c) industry trends in the design and construction of isolators,

(d) the sun-setting of the AASHTO Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges

(e) provisions in the Design Specifications that impact the design and testing of isolation bearings, such as in Section 14, Bearings and Expansion Joints.
