Behavior of Composite-Strengthened Concrete Bridge Members under Multi-Hazard Loadings

The proposed research aims to investigate the ramifications of multi-hazard loadings on the performance of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP)-strengthened and -reinforced concrete members. An experimental program will be conducted to study the behavior of carbon FRP (CFRP)-strengthened concrete girders exposed to thermal and mechanical loadings. A numerical study will also be carried out to comprehend the implications of deicing salts in conjunction with traffic loadings on the behavior of a full-scale bridge, including microscopic corrosion propagation and macroscopic responses.
