DetailTitle: Life-Cycle Strategy Analysis For Concrete Bridge Decks in Pennsylvania
Resource type: Presentation
Year published: 2016
This presentation focuses on the Life-Cycle Strategy Analysis for bridge decks. It begins by giving background on bridge deck cracking and the objectives driving this initiative such as identifying symptoms of early-age cracking and identify the most effective remediation practices for concrete bridge decks. It then explains current remediation practices and their associated costs. It concludes by noting how Life-Cycle cost analysis during construction and design can lower the required number of remediation treatments and thus lowering the LCC .
