Structures Detailing Manual Examples


As a supplement to the Structures Detailing Manual (SDM), a series of examples has been compiled here which represent some of the many situations a designer may encounter when designing and detailing structures. These Structures Detailing Manual Examples are provided in PDF documents that are structured to illustrate the content that is expected to be seen on each sheet at each level of completion based on the requirements set forth in the FDOT Design Manual (FDM),
Sections 121. Each PDF opens showing the level of completion that is expected for the sheet the first time it is submitted. Bookmarks are provided in the left panel which allow the user to click on the desired submittal phase to see the appropriate level of completion for the sheet. The information presented in these examples is meant to convey detailing and organizational requirements and not to present actual design examples. (No files exceed 1MB)
