Title:Behavior of Composite-Strengthened Concrete Bridge Members under Multi-Hazard Loadings
Principal Investigators:Yail "Jimmy" Kim
University:University of Colorado Denver
Grant #:69A3551747108 (FAST Act)
Project #:MPC-613
RiP #:01732548
RH Display ID:154562
Keywords:carbon fibers, composite structures, concrete bridges, corrosion, deicing chemicals, fiber reinforced polymers, girders, numerical analysis, reinforced concrete bridges, traffic loads


The proposed research aims to investigate the ramifications of multi-hazard loadings on the performance of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP)-strengthened and -reinforced concrete members. An experimental program will be conducted to study the behavior of carbon FRP (CFRP)-strengthened concrete girders exposed to thermal and mechanical loadings. A numerical study will also be carried out to comprehend the implications of deicing salts in conjunction with traffic loadings on the behavior of a full-scale bridge, including microscopic corrosion propagation and macroscopic responses.
