NCHRP 12-50

BridgeTech’s Role:

The objective of this project was to develop a methodology for bridge-design software validation. This objective has been achieved with the development of “Process 12-50″, a systematic method of comparing and evaluating bridge design and analysis software. Process 12-50 also provides a standardized report format for presenting and comparing results for a specific bridge design and a powerful method for formally reviewing specification changes. Michael Baker Jr., Inc., assisted by BridgeTech, Inc., Modjeski and Masters, Inc., and Paul D. Thompson, performed the research.
