Abstract:
Traffic-induced vibrations appear to have no detrimental effects on either concrete-steel bond strength or compressive strength in full-depth bridge deck repairs, so long as low slump concrete is used. This conclusion is based on the results of experiments using vibrations that match values obtained from field measurements. Variations in concrete cover, reinforcing bar sizes, and slump were investigated.
