Lightweight high performance concrete (LWHPC) is expected to provide high strength and high durability along with reduced weight. This paper reports on the evaluation of LWHPC bulb-T beams, fabricated using different mix designs and curing procedures (steam-cured versus moist-cured), and LWHPC decks for two bridge projects recently completed in Virginia. Poor soil conditions at the project bridge sites and long span lengths made the use of reduced-weight materials desirable. The beams had a… CONTINUE READING
