Assessment and optimization of double CT bridge girder sections with longitudinal precast decks

This project focuses on the extension of novel, fiber-reinforced polymer tub girder (CT girder) sections to incorporate precast concrete deck panels. This will extend the application of this new bridge technology by modularizing construction, optimizing the use of relatively costly composite materials, and reducing required superstructure depth. This research project will employ both large-scale and smaller-scale experiments, and includes direct collaboration with an industrial partner who is actively marketing this technology.
