Abstract:
Prestressed concrete planks using CFRP tendons were used to replace badly deteriorated hollow core planks for the access ramp to the University of Wyoming football stadium. The test program for the planks is described followed by the issues associated with the construction and installation of the replacement planks. The planks have been in service for five years and no signs of deterioration have been observed.
