Prestressed Carbon Strands Utilized in Repair of Football Stadium Ramp

This paper describes how prestressed concrete planks that use carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) tendons were used to replace badly deteriorated hollow core planks for the access ramp of the University of Wyoming football stadium. The test program for the planks is described in the paper and this is followed by the issues associated with the construction and installation of the replacement planks. The planks have been in service for five years and no signs of deterioration have been observed.
