axial braking load for bridges

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a old structural engineering manual and I thought I read in there that it said that bridge foundations need to be designed for an axial breaking load equal to 25% or 30% of the live load neglecting impact.  Is this right?  Where is this located in the AASHTO Bridge Design Specifications.
 
 
Thanks.
