Title:Reducing Shrinkage Cracking in Bridge Decks Using the Single and Double-Ring Test Methods
Principal Investigators:Jennifer Tanner
University:University of Wyoming
Grant #:69A3551747108 (FAST Act)
Project #:MPC-652
RH Display ID:156645
Keywords:bridge decks, concrete bridges, cracking, ring stress, shrinkage, test procedures


The condition of concrete on bridge decks is one of the most costly parts of Wyoming Department of Transportation's budget and the cost of maintenance can result in inadequate roads or costly premature repairs. This proposal evaluates critical factors relating to early age shrinkage and proposes combining multiple mitigation methods to reduce early-age cracking that contributes to early degradation.
