Abstract

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Synthesis 551: Highway Hydraulic Engineering State of Practice documents significant changes in highway hydraulic engineering practices implemented by state departments of transportation (DOTs) over the past decade.

The synthesis focuses on eight subtopics of highway hydraulic engineering: roadway drainage; culvert aquatic organism passage; bridge scour computations and countermeasures; advanced hydraulic modeling; regulatory requirements; floodplain impacts and mitigation; coastal hydraulics; and alternative project delivery methods.
