The ATC-6 report, Seismic Design Guidelines for Highway Bridges, was published under a contract with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). (Published 1981, 204 pages)
ABSTRACT: The Guidelines are the recommendations of a team of sixteen nationally recognized experts that included consulting engineers, academics, state and federal agency representatives from throughout the United States. The Guidelines embody several new concepts that were significant departures from then existing design provisions. Included in the Guidelines are an extensive commentary, an example demonstrating the use of the Guidelines, and summary reports on 21 bridges redesigned in accordance with the Guidelines. In 1991, the Guidelines were adopted by the American Association of Highway and Transportation Officials as a standard specification.
