The ATC-6-2 report, Seismic Retrofitting Guidelines for Highway Bridges, was published under a contract with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). (Published 1983, 220 pages)
ABSTRACT: The Guidelines are the recommendations of a team of thirteen nationally recognized experts that included consulting engineers, academics, state highway engineers, and federal agency representatives. The Guidelines, applicable for use in all parts of the United States, include a preliminary screening procedure, methods for evaluating an existing bridge in detail, and potential retrofitting measures for the most common seismic deficiencies. Also included are special design requirements for various retrofitting measures.
