Continuing Education Credit: 0.20 CEU (2.00 PDH)
Approved AIA and ICC
Access Period: 30 days
Collaboration with Canadian scholars, the special session will focus on recent advances in non-conventional reinforcing and strengthening methods for bridges and structures. Presentations will include the field applications of non-metallic reinforcement, special construction approaches, and other emerging techniques. The session is intended to translate research into practice for practitioners.

Table of Contents
1. Describe an effective FRP strengthening method for under-capacity prestressed concrete bridge girder that is externally mechanically applied.
2. Explain recent industry developments in GFRP reinforcing bars that can potentially be used in reinforced concrete structures exposed to corrosive or other harsh environments.
3. Explain advancements in the fiber reinforcement industry to develop acceptable design and material standards in US and Canada.
4. Discuss bridge deck strengthening using ultra-high performance concrete overlays that are thinner and less weight than conventional concrete.
