Lifting Loops in Prestressed Deck Beams

Field inspections have found many producers are designing their own lifting loops for deck beams instead of following recommended practices. Therefore, no lifting loop standard is being followed. The objective of this study is to develop a best practice for the fabrication and use of lifting hooks that consider producer practices and constraints.
