POLYMER-IMPREGNATED PRECAST STRUCTURAL CONCRETE BRIDGE DECK PANELS

This report contains the results of a research program that shows how the inherent structural and durability properties of polymer-impregnated concrete (PIC) can be incorporated into a precast panel system to provide an excellent bridge deck. Panels were designed and tested under both static and fatigue loading. The tests verified the design procedures and load carrying capabilities. Extensive physical property testing in compression, tension, flexure, and fatigue was performed on specimens to verify the quality of the initial concrete and PIC used in the panels. An investigation into prestress losses was performed. Also, various nondestructive tests were evaluated to determine a method for quality control for PIC.
