Project 12-103 of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) is a research study to evaluate the tolerance of bridge superstructure to total and differental foundation movements. NCS GeoResources (NCSG), through participation of Naresh Samtani, is a key part of a Research Team (RT) led by Professor Frank Moon of Rutgers to develop a comprehensive understanding of the levels of support movements that bridges may tolerate before exceeding strength or service limit states. This research was devised to satisfy the following objectives: Develop analytical procedures to objectively determine the acceptable levels of bridge foundation movements based upon...
