Guide Specifications and Commentary for Vessel Collision Design of Highway Bridges, 2nd Edition, with 2010 Interim Revisions
standard by American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials, 2009
This 2nd Edition of the Guide Specification was developed to incorporate lessons learned from the use of the original 1991 Vessel Collision Guide Specification; incorporate the current LRFD Bridge Design methodology; clarify some of the risk procedure elements; make minor modifications and corrections; and to discuss, and incorporate where deemed necessary, results from barge and ship collision research conducted since the original vessel collision publication. The use of the Guide Specification procedures to evaluate existing bridges has been highlighted in this revised edition, and a new worked example illustrating the vessel collision risk assessment procedures has been provided. This edition developed in U.S. Customary Units.
