Title: Evaluating Crack-Reduction Technologies for Settlement Cracking in Concrete Bridge Decks
Author(s): James D. Lafikes, Rouzbeh Khajehdehi, Muzai Feng, Eman Khalid Ibrahim, Matthew O’Reilly, and Dave Darwin
Publication: Web Session
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:The causes for concrete pavement cracking and how they are related to the development of early-age properties and their effect on long-term durability will be explored during this session. This includes:
• The effect of mixture design (including materials used and proportion of materials) on early-age properties and bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking
• The influence of construction practices on early-age properties and bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking
• The impact of specifications on early-age properties and bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking
• The relation between bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking caused by early-age properties development and the reduction of long-term durability
• Early-age measurement techniques that can evaluate early-age properties that are most related to bridge deck and/or concrete pavement cracking
• Quality assurance practices to prevent cracking
• Case studies
