Shear Testing of Prestressed High Performance Concrete Bridge Girders
Haines, Robert Anthony
MetadataShow full item record
This report details the design and construction of an AASHTO Type IV prestressed girder and a PCI BT-56 prestressed girder. It also details the shear testing and shear performance of the BT-56 girder. The results are compared with results from previous research dating back to 1986. Finally, all research was compared with the AASHTO Standard (2002), AASHTO LRFD (1998) and AASHTO LRFD (2004) Specifications to examine thier overall accuracy in predicting shear strengths.
