DURABILITY OF CONCRETE BRIDGE DECKS - A COOPERATIVE STUDY

THIS IS THE LAST IN A SERIES OF SIX REPORTS WHICH DESCRIBE A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF DURABILITY OF CONCRETE HIGHWAY BRIDGE DECKS. THE STUDY WAS CONDUCTED BY THE PORTLAND CEMENT ASSOCIATION WITH THE COOPERATION OF THE BUREAU OF PUBLIC ROADS AND 10 STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS. THE DATA ARE SUMMARIZED AS TO THE NATURE, THE CAUSES, THE SEVERITY, AND THE EXTENT OF DISTRESS ON CONCRETE BRIDGE DECKS FROM THE PREVIOUS FIVE REPORTS. SUGGESTIONS FOR OBTAINING IMPROVED DURABILITY OF CONCRETE BRIDGE DECKS ARE PRESENTED. THE REPORT CONTAINS NEW INFORMATION ON THE RESULTS OF A STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CALCULATED SUPERSTRUCTURE VIBRATION CHARACTERISTICS AND OBSERVED CRACKING AND SPALLING ON THE DECKS. /AUTHOR/
