1. ## Books for Foundations on Rock

I was looking to see if anyone knows of any good books for foundations on rock. I'm good with soils, it's just rock becomes a little more complicated. I use the AASHTO code at work, and well if you have used that before, it's not very helpful especially with Driven Piles. Any help would be appreciated.
2. ## Weld Symbol Question

Thanks! It's a standard detail from a State DOT so I guess then I will have to go to the State and ask what they meant by that detail.
3. ## Weld Symbol Question

The one side is a square groove weld, but I'm not sure about the other side. It's not a v or flare v weld. I haven't seen that exact symbol before.
4. ## Weld Symbol Question

I was seeing if anyone can help me with this weld symbol, I seem to being having trouble determining the exact weld? As a background, it's for a finger joint being used on a bridge. The detail shown is for the steel sliding plate. Thanks. Finger Joint Weld.pdf
5. ## Multiple Presence Factor in AASHTO LRFD

Thanks it does. I think what was confusing me was the word "lanes". And the other additional wording they have. But it make sense.
6. ## Multiple Presence Factor in AASHTO LRFD

I am a little confused by the wording in AASHTO LRFD C3.6.1.1.2 and how it relates to the Multiple Presence Factor. Here it is as follows: If a component supported a sidewalk and two lanes of vehicular live load, it would be investigated for: One lane of vehicular live load, m = 1.20; The greater of the more significant lanes of vehicular live load and pedestrian loads or two lanes of vehicular live load, m = 1.0, applied to the governing case; and Two lanes of vehicular live load and the pedestrian loads, m = 0.85. I understand bullet 1 and 3. Bullet 2's wording I think is a bit confusing. Can anyone maybe help me understand this one a little? Thanks.
7. ## Is there an error with development length in 7th Edition of AASHTO LRFD?

I noticed when calculating the development length for rebar in tension the lengths are much higher (6' compared to 1') when using the 2015/2016 Interim Revisions to the 7th Edition of AASHTO. Has anyone else come across this? To me, this doesn't seem correct. Has there been an errata?
8. ## Received Pass Notice from NCEES, but still waiting on State Board?

I emailed Roberta and she e-mailed me back with a registration number.
9. ## Received Pass Notice from NCEES, but still waiting on State Board?

Yea I know. I emailed Roberta last night to see what was going on. Because it has been over 2 weeks (even if you don't count the holidays).
10. ## Received Pass Notice from NCEES, but still waiting on State Board?

I am also waiting for Maryland to send something. Not sure why it is taking too long, but my guess is because of the holidays.
