Repair or Strengthening of Bridge Decks with Partial-Depth Precast Deck Panels

This research will provide methods to economically repair or strengthen structurally delaminated decks built using partial-depth precast concrete deck panels with minimal interruption of traffic. The primary objective of this UDOT research project is to develop and recommend a strengthening and repair method to re-laminate the precast concrete panel and cast-in-place (CIP) deck, ensure composite behavior through mechanical connections, or strengthen the panel such that bridge deck delamination does not pose a safety risk. Secondary objectives of this research project are to provide guidelines for repair/strengthening methods and develop a set of draft working drawings and draft specifications.
