Development of GFRP Reinforced Single Slope Bridge Rail

The objectives of this research are to test a GFRP-reinforced concrete single-slope bridge rail, and to demonstrate-using pendulum impact testing at the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Structures Research Center-that the GFRP rail is structurally equivalent to the traditional FDOT R/C single-slope bridge rail.
