Title

Life expectancy modeling for FRP strengthened reinforced concrete bridges

Abstract

"In this thesis, the author presents one possible strength degradation approach using analytical modeling to determine the life expectancy of FRP strengthened bridges. An actual Carbon FRP field strengthened bridge in Dallas County, Missouri, USA, is utilized to demonstrate the life expectancy approach. The Dallas County Bridge P-0962 was constructed in 1955 and strengthened in 2003. To predict the life expectancy behavior of the bridge structure, a theoretical model was derived using basic concepts, past research, and the tested properties of specimens for critical chloride concentration"--Abstract, leaf iii.

Accompanying CD-ROM, available at Missouri S&T Library, contains the two sheets of Math-CAD. First Math-CAD sheet has a program for calculating life expectancy of FRP strengthened RC bridges in Standard American English Units (S.A.E.). Second Math-CAD sheet has a program for calculating life expectancy of FRP strengthened RC bridges in S.I. Metric Units (S.I.)
System requirements: Math-CAD.
