Abstract:

BACKGROUND Deck corrosion is problematic and costly for vehicular bridges The Army alone has more than 1,500 bridges on its installations, with the majority having reinforced concrete decks FHWA Report RD-01-156 states that approximately one quarter of the direct cost of corrosion of bridges is maintenance and capital costs for concrete decks FHWA studies have also found that indirect costs to the user due to traffic delays, and lost productivity can be up to 10 times higher than the direct costs of repair and maintenance.
