Develop NextGen Texas Bridge Decks

The research team will conduct a comprehensive experimental and analytical investigation to develop appropriate design criteria for using partial-depth precast panels that can span the full width of bridge superstructure. The research team will develop and validate a precast deck panel system with wire trusses that will integrate with precast panel practices in Texas. The research team will study the behavior of full-scale bridge superstructure models under design loads, typical overloads, and at ultimate conditions. The research team will develop and test standard details for partial-depth deck panels in the laboratory for use in TxDOT’s standards for bridges constructed in Texas. The research team will provide design guidelines that reflect the knowledge developed during the course of the project’s experimental and analytical investigations.
