The FHWA recently released 'GEC 12 - Design and Construction of Driven Pile Foundations' (FHWA-NHI-16-009 and FHWA-NHI-16-010). A companion publication 'Design and Construction of Driven Pile Foundations - Comprehensive Design Examples' (FHWA-NHI-16-064) is also available. This publication replaces the previous Reference Manual titled Design and Construction of Driven Pile Foundations, published in April 2006. The publications become the twelfth in the series of geotechnical engineering guidelines called 'Geotechnical Engineering Circulars.'

This update reflects the state of the practice for the design, construction and inspection of driven pile foundations for transportation structures. The guidance is developed following the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, 7th Edition, 2014 with 2015 Interim, and Construction Specifications, 3rd Edition, 2010, with '11, '12, '13, '14, and '15 Interims. The text is developed with a sufficiently broad scope to be of value to a wide range of transportation specialists responsible for assisting with selection, design, development of specifications, construction monitoring, and contracting methods for driven piles.
