Use of Ultra-High Performance Concrete for Bridge Deck Overlay

The proposed project aims at advancing the developed ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) overlay technology through the following objectives: (1) Provide a UHPC mix design that will allow the deck overlay to be completed with appropriate crowning; (2) Demonstrate the technology by performing deck overlay on an existing bridge; (3) Evaluate the benefits of using UHPC with an overlay; and (4) Conduct a workshop to educate the local workforce, including Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) personnel as well as Iowa's county and city engineers, about UHPC and its potential applications. The objectives, and thus the scope of this project, will be achieved through five tasks: Task 1: Literature Review; Task 2: New UHPC Overlay Mix and Nondestructive Evaluation; Task 3: Filed Implementation of UHPC Overlay; Task 4: Dissemination through Workshop; and Task 5: Final Report.
