Note: Substantial effort has been made to assure that all data and information in this HPS Designers' Guide are accurate and useful to the designers in considering high performance steels in their bridge projects. As the data and information may change with time, the designers must verify the accuracy and appropriateness of the data and information before finalizing the design and special provisions. Although this Guide is intended for use by designers competent in the design of highway bridges, the team leaders, supervisors, and managers of bridge engineering, and the general readers may also find the Guide helpful in gaining better understanding of the properties and benefits of high performance steels.
