Issue 77, the July/August 2014 edition of the Concrete Bridge Views newsletter is now online. Articles include:
  • Fundamentals of Crack Control in Reinforced Concrete - Robert J. Frosch, PhD, PE, Purdue University. Crack control is an important issue for primarily two reasons: aesthetics and durability. Wide cracks detract from a structure visually as well as may unduly alarm the public that there are structural problems.
  • Michigan’s Experience with Ductile ECC for Bridge Decks - Victor C. Li, University of Michigan. Increasingly, DOTs are expected to maintain bridge inventories in good conditions under a tight budget. Simultaneously, there is a sense of urgency to enhance mobility and sustainability of transportation infrastructure.
  • Shrinkage Reducing Admixture Usage in Hawaii Bridge Decks - Gerobin Carnate, Hawaii DOT. Hawaii’s climate is considered ideal for concrete construction due to its mild temperatures and moderate humidity levels year round.
  • Sustainable Bridges and Infrastructure (Part II) - Julie Buffenbarger, FACI, LEED AP, Lafarge. For several decades, researchers interested in the relationship between building materials, construction processes, and their environmental impacts have studied embodied energy in building materials.
Concrete Bridge Views is published jointly by the Federal Highway Administration and the National Concrete Bridge Council. Articles cited above can be found here.
