Explores code-ready language containing general design guidance and a simplified design procedure for blast-resistant reinforced concrete bridge columns. The report also examines the results of experimental blast tests and analytical research on reinforced concrete bridge columns designed to investigate the effectiveness of a variety of different design techniques.Typical column types: a) solid, b) single- column, c) multi-column, d) pile bent ( NYSDOT, 2006). There are four main ... The majority of DOT manuals prefer discrete hoop reinforcement over continuous spiral reinforcement due to ease of construction. However ... Section 184.108.40.206 of the AASHTO LRFD (2007) defines standard hooks for transverse reinforcement as one of the following: ac No. 5 bar and smaller: 90Ad bend, plus a 6.0 db extension at the free end of the bar ac No. 6, No. 7, andanbsp;...
