HRB QUESTIONNAIRE ON BRIDGE DECK FINISHING

DUE TO THE INCREASINGLY WIDESPREAD USE OF MECHANICAL BRIDGE DECK SCREEDING EQUIPMENT, A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS RECENTLY PREPARED AND DISTRIBUTED TO HIGHWAY RESEARCH BOARD MEMBERS TO PROVIDE A CURRENT RECORD OF THE EQUIPMENT IN USE. THE QUESTIONNAIRE WAS EXPANDED TO INCLUDE SOME INFORMATION PERTAINING TO CLOSELY ALLIED ITEMS SUCH AS CONSTRUCTION PROCEDURES AND MATERIALS. RESPONSES WERE RECEIVED FROM ALL THE STATES, CANADIAN PROVINCES, PUERTO RICO, AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. THE RESULTS ARE CONSOLIDATED IN A TABLE. THE QUESTIONS DEAL WITH TYPE OF EQUIPMENT, HAND SCREEDING, SCREED RAILS, USE OF AIR INTRAINMENT AND METAL FORMS, CONTINUOUS PLACEMENT, USE OF RETARDER, AND FINISHING AND CURING PRACTICES.
