Concrete Deck Material Properties

  title={Concrete Deck Material Properties},
  author={Kolluru V. L. Subramaniam and Anil Kumar Agrawal},
The two-fold focus of this study was (a) to develop an understanding of the mechanisms responsible for causing cracking in the concrete; and (b) to study the influence of the local materials on the performance of New York State Department of Transportation's (NYSDOT’s) high performance (HP) concrete mixture. Recommendations for minimizing the premature cracking in HP concrete decks related to restrained volumetric contraction are developed from the results of this investigation. It is important… CONTINUE READING
