Hybrid FRP and Concrete Bridge Deck Systems

The primary objective of this study is to introduce fiber reinforced polymer (FRP)-concrete hybrid deck systems through analysis and experimental procedures, and to optimize these systems to produce durable, structurally sound and cost effective hybrid systems that will take full advantage of both the FRP materials and concrete. Two hybrid FRP-concrete bridge deck systems shall be investigated. The FRP systems can be utilized to replace concrete decks on steel girders, or to serve as self-supported short span bridge superstructure. The two concepts rely on using cellular components to form the core of the deck system, and an outer shell to wrap around those cells to form the integral unit of the deck.
