DECISION CRITERIA FOR THE REHABILITATION OF CONCRETE BRIDGE DECKS

A systematic approach to bridge-deck rehabilitation is presented. Bridge-deck rehabilitation is consuming an increasing proportion of the resources of highway agencies. The nature and extent of deterioration are highly variable so that there is neither a single problem nor a single solution. The requirements for a condition survey are described. The performance of concrete overlays, water- proofing membranes, and cathodic protection applied to existing structures is assessed from field studies and the literature. Decision criteria that can be used to identify the most appropriate method of rehabilitation for any particular structure are given. (Authors)
