One of the technologies adopted by the Federal Highway Administration's Every Day Counts initiative, this video illustrates how to build the Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil-Integrated Bridge System (GRS-IBS). It is intended to educate designers, engineers, contractors and inspectors on the fundamentals of the GRS-IBS. The video follows the GRS-IBS Interim Implementation Guide (FHWA-HRT-11-026) found here: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/...
Included in the video are the following:
• Explanation of GRS and its history of development
• Interviews with designers, owners and construction personnel
• Narrated video footage to explain the construction of the three main components: reinforced soil foundation; abutment; and integrated approach
• Time lapse photography to show the speed of construction
