Developing Connections for Longitudinal Joints Between Deck Bulb Tees

The goal of the research is to minimize the cost and cracking potential at the longitudinal joint of the deck bulb tee girders so that the overall cost of bridge decks is minimized. The research is two-fold and will: 1) develop a mix with locally sourced materials for the ultra-high strength concrete used for the connection between the girders and 2) investigate the connection details for the deck bulb tee girders.
