Florida Slab Beam Bridge with Ultra-High Performance Concrete Joint Connections

The objective of this research is to develop modified design details of Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT's) Florida Slab Beam (FSB) Design Standard to utilize the Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) longitudinal joint between beams with an asphalt overlay. The modified details will be developed and tested using small and full-scale test specimens. Guidelines and specifications for the use of UHPC in beam joints shall be provided.
