Development and Evaluation of an Adhesively Bonded Panel-to-Panel Joint for a Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Bridge Deck System
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2007-04-01)
A fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite cellular deck system was used to rehabilitate a historical cast iron thru-truss structure (Hawthorne Street Bridge in Covington, Virginia). The most important characteristic of ...
Recommendations for the Connection Between Full-Depth Precast Bridge Deck Panel Systems and Precast I-Beams
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2007-06-01)
Precast bridge deck panels can be used in place of a cast-in-place concrete deck to reduce bridge closure times for deck replacements or new bridge construction. The panels are prefabricated at a precasting plant providing ...
Bridge Deck Service Life Prediction and Costs
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2007-12-01)
The service life of Virginia's concrete bridge decks is generally controlled by chloride-induced corrosion of the reinforcing steel as a result of the application of winter maintenance deicing salts. A chloride corrosion ...
Asphalt Materials Characterization in Support of Implementation of the Proposed Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2007-01-01)
The proposed Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) procedure is an improved methodology for pavement design and evaluation of paving materials. Since this new procedure depends heavily on the characterization ...
