Glass Fiber Reinforced-Polymer (GFRP) Bar Reinforced Concrete Deck Slab: Strength and Serviceability
This paper presents the study on GFRP bar reinforced concrete bridge deck that is designed as typical one-way concrete slab. Parametric study of deck thickness, girder spacing, and environmental reduction factor was performed, on the basis of requirements per ACI 440.1R-06 guideline, from which the results show that design of GFRP RC deck is controlled by the cracking serviceability but not the ultimate flexural moment.
