Evaluation of 0.70 inch Diameter Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) Pretensioning Strands in Prestressed Beams

The objectives of this project are to: (1) evaluate material properties, details, and design criteria to use 0.7 inch diameter carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) strands for pretensioning of prestressed American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) I girders, bulb-t, and box beams; (2) evaluate performance of 0.7 inch diameter CFRP strands for environmental conditions and extreme events; (3) prepare design procedures and examples; and (4) prepare construction specifications for 0.7 inch CFRP strands and identify fabrication concerns with the larger diameter strands.
