Application of the LRFD Bridge Design Specifications to High-Strength Structural Concrete: Shear Provisions

The objective of this research is to develop recommended revisions to the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications to extend the applicability of shear design provisions for reinforced and prestressed concrete structures to concrete compressive strengths greater than 10 ksi. In addition, other barriers to the use of high- strength concrete will be identified.
