Sustainable, Rapid Repair Using Advanced Cementitious Materials

The primary goal of this project is to understand the combined impact of corrosion and earthquake hazards on existing bridges, and the impact of repairs using cementitious composites on the vulnerability of bridges to these hazards. This will be achieved by establishing a probabilistic framework that can then be used to evaluate the impact of rapid and sustainable repairs on the resiliency against the combined effects of other hazards with corrosion. The intended outcome of the project will be documented by obtaining input from maintenance engineers, by distributing a survey to New York State regional bridge maintenance engineers on their likelihood for adopting the framework and rapid repair using advanced cementitious materials in their regions. A presentation or a webinar will be created to educate engineers about the new methodology.
