The application of fiber-reinforced polymer ͑FRP͒ technology to bridges can provide performance enhancements at a time when there is a large and growing need to replace aging bridges in the United States. However, construction costs are significantly higher than with traditional methods, and it is not clear if this technology can become competitive in the(More)
Research Objectives The objective of this research project is to examine the use of Glass FRP (GFRP) and carbon FRP (CFRP) materials for bridge construction. In particular, GFRP honeycomb sandwich panels are used as bridge panels and steel-supported bridge deck panels and CFRP and GFRP bars are used as internal reinforcement for a precast concrete slab(More)
