This thesis presents the results of a research project that tested five friction reducing techniques on the bearing ends of precast prestressed concrete bridge girders. The five techniques were the following: an oil coated surface, embedded steel plate with an oil coated surface, embedded steel angle with an oil coated surface, teflon pad, and a wax lubricant.
