NCEES Practice Exam 2011 Transpo question 116

13 posts in this topic

I get a factor of safety of 3.05 and disagree with the solution of 2.8. Am I missing something? The difference is in the moment arm of the triangular section of concrete. I say the distance is 2/3x2', the solution says 2/3'.

You are right. An erratta was put out for this.

I've said quite often that the first thing everyone should do before they start studying is check for official errata for all their study/reference sources.

Also, question 116 is the same for all 5 NCEES civil sample question books.

Do you know if the 2004 Green book has an errata... I looked on the website but didn't find anything.

I wondered the same thing when I started my studies. Like you, I didn't see anything on-line so I e-mailed AASHTO and asked. They told me they do not have any errata for the 2004 GDHS. However, I believe there is errata for the 2006 Roadside Design Guide.

Ok thanks. Yes, I saw the errata but thankfully mine was from last fall so it had all the updates in it. The CERM had a ton. I spent a couple hours writing them all in yesterday.

I agree, but the problem with the PPI books is the web site for the Errata submissions is down almost every time I try to submit. Frustruating.

Jason, what's weird is I have problems with the PPI errata link at home but not at work so it could be a 'per computer' problem. If you want to list your PPI books (title, printing, edition), I can look up the errata for you and e-mail it to you.
