Design, Construction, Laboratory and Field Testing of the Bridge on the Arnault Branch, Washington County, Missouri

Two innovative FRP technologies will be employed for the rapid and effective replacement of different portions of the structure with a safer and more functional slab type bridge. The design strategies consist of a) helicoidal FRP helixes integrated with longitudinal FRP rebars as slab reinforcement, and b) prefabricated pultruded FRP panels as stay-in-place (SIP) formwork and structural reinforcement.
