This paper examines the changes to engineering design practice that might occur given climate-induced changes in environmental factors. A project design is separated into the individual components that might be affected by changing environmental conditions: subsurface conditions, materials specifications, cross sections and standard dimensions, drainage and erosion, structures and location engineering.
