Technical Engineering and Design Guides, as adapted from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, No. 22

This manual prescribes guidance for designing hydraulic steel structures by load and resistance factor design (LRFD) and fracture control. Allowable stress design guidance is provided as an alternative or as a design procedure for structure types for which LRFD criteria have yet to be developed. The advantages of differing variability of different load effects (live and dead loads) and resistances (bending capacity, shear capacity, and fracture) provided by the LRFD method are covered, in addition to ways of obtaining structures with a more uniform reliability and economy. Loads applied to a structure and resistance of structural members as random quantities that are recognized by LRFD approach are also discussed.

Topics include: limit states; corrosion; dynamics loading; inspection and maintenance; deviations from prescribed design; strength requirements; reliability factors for hydraulic steel structures; serviceability requirements;fatigue and fracture control; load and stress requirements; design basis and considerations; and bolted and welded connections.

Engineers with responsibility for design of civil works projects will find this manual useful.
