Event Type: NHI Web-Conference Training (WCT)
Date/Time: 5/9/2013 11:00 AM - 5:30 PM EST
Approval Status: Confirmed


The Implementation of Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD): Geotechnical Design for Bridge Foundations is a Web-conference training (WCT) that is designed to assist transportation agencies with the successful development of LRFD Design Guidance for bridge foundations. The training follows the 2010 American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, Fifth Edition, while incorporating local experiences of design engineers and various transportation agencies. The course is presented in two sessions with a variety of interactive discussions and exercises to verify achievement of learning objectives.

The training introduces a step-by-step procedure for implementing the LRFD platform and provides recommendations to assist transportation agencies in implementing these steps. It also highlights principal changes in the AASHTO design specifications regarding the transition from allowable stress design (ASD) to LRFD and discusses options for selecting LRFD design methods.
