METAL BRIDGE DECK FORM SPECIFICATION DEVELOPED COOPERATIVELY BY INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT

INVESTIGATIONS OF BRIDGE DECK SLABS FORMED WITH STEEL FORMS TO REMAIN IN PLACE, MADE IN CONNECTION WITH THE COOPERATIVE PREPARATION OF A SPECIFICATION BY INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT, ARE REPORTED. RESEARCH AND QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEY RESULTS THAT WERE REVIEWED ARE ALSO REPORTED. IT WAS FOUND THAT SO-CALLED FAILURES OF STEEL FORMS WERE CAUSED BY THE APPLICATION OF OTHER STEEL SHEET PRODUCTS AS A FORMING MATERIAL, DESIGN DETAILS THAT PERMIT SALT-LADEN MOISTURE TO ATTACK THE METAL, SPECIFICATION ERROR, CONSTRUCTION ABUSE, AND LACK OF PROPER PLACEMENT AND CONSOLIDATION OF THE CONCRETE. THE RESULTING SPECIFICATION IS INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
