Keywords: Bridge Deck, Construction, Durability, Fiber Reinforced Concrete, Pavements, Synthetic fibers, Sustainability, White-topping.
Abstract:High-volume fiber composites composed of structural synthetic fiber-reinforced concrete (SSFRC) are introducing revolutionary changes in the structural application of concrete and shotcrete. These concrete are excellent candidates for repair, retrofit and rehabilitation old structures and for rebuilding the nation’s highways, bridges, buildings, dams, ports, harbors, tunnels, offshore structures, explosion resistant structures, and earthquake resistant structures.
This paper presents briefly an evaluation of the construction and performance of a few fiber reinforced concrete structures built during last ten years. Results of control tests for concrete performance in a barrier, a bridge deck overlay and a white topping are given. Attributes of SSFRC towards improving the sustainability and durability are discussed.
