Manual for Assessing the Service Life of Corrosion-Deteriorated Reinforced Concrete Members of Highway Bridges in West Virginia

The object of this research project is to develop a manual for use by the West Virginia Department of Highways (WVDOH) that will aim at providing a step-by-step procedure for a) assessing the condition of reinforced concrete bridge members subjected to corrosion-induced deterioration, b) predicting the remaining service life of these members, and c) quantifying their service life extension expected from alternative maintenance and repair options. The study will deal only with concrete bridge members reinforced with epoxy-coated and/or "black" rebars.
