Utilizing Steel Fibers as Concrete Reinforcement in Bridge Decks

Researchers will perform work aimed toward the development of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) mix designs and optimized top mat reinforcement detailing for use in fiber-reinforced cast-in-place (CIP) slabs constructed on top of stay-in-place precast concrete panels (PCP). The findings from this research will be developed through the performance of targeted SFRC mixture design and material testing activities, numerical modeling activities used to assess SFRC CIP-PCP bridge deck structural performance, and the execution of idealized and full-scale SFRC bridge deck structural testing programs to validate the suitability of the crack control and load carrying abilities of proposed SFRC cast-in-place slab design recommendations.
