Use of Salvaged Utility Poles in Roadway Bridges : Time-Dependent Behavior of Composite Wood-Concrete Beams

  • Nathan J. Miller Richard M. Gutkowski Jeno Balogh
  • Published 2009


This research study focused on the long-term and repeated load behavior of wood-concrete composite beams in which the wood layer is composed of recycled utility poles. Previous research studies have found this type of a beam to have high efficiency and to be a potentially viable replacement for short span bridges on low traffic roadways. Since both wood and… (More)
