Project Details

Title:Long-Term Behavior of Precast Concrete Bridges
Principal Investigators:Paul Barr
University:Utah State University
Grant #:DTRT13-G-UTC38 (MAP21)
Project #:MPC-478
RH Display ID:151093
Keywords:bridge design, concrete bridges, cracking, girder bridges, load and resistance factor design, prestressed concrete, temperature, temperature gradients, thermal conductivity


The objective of this research is to compare measured temperature variations with predicted temperature variations in accordance to the AASHTO LRFD Specifications. Differences between the two sources will be quantified. In addition, the effect of temperature variations on prestressed concrete girder design will be summarized.
