Abstract:
The durability and maintenance costs of concrete highway bridge decks are highly dependent upon the care exercised during the construction phase, including attendant activities during the preconstruction and postconstruction eriods. Recommendations relatative to these periods are presented covering tre areas of design considerations, inspection, preconstruction planning, falsework and formwork, reinforcement, concrete materials and properties, measuring and mixing, placing and consolidation, finishing, curing, postconstruction care, and the use of overlays.
