AASHTO MDM 3rd Edition, March 2005
MODEL DRAINAGE MANUAL (U.S. AND SI UNITS)
Additional Comments: ALSO SEE AASHTO MDM CD
Overview: The AASHTO Task Force has incorporated its numerous years of experience into this comprehensive drainage manual to provide guidance on most aspects of highway drainage. Design theories, concepts, manuals, policies, and procedures are condensed and written for use by the designer. Where appropriate, relevant existing AASHTO guidelines, including the HDG, are given and/or referenced.
The manual has been developed to provide the designer with a basic working knowledge of hydrology and hydraulics complete with example problems. All basic design elements are included such that the designer can design highway drainage with minimal assistance. However, this manual cannot provide guidance on complex hydrologic or hydraulic problems, and it is no substitute for experience or engineering judgment.
