Abstract:

The Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center NFESC was tasked in FY05 by the Marine Corps, Office of Naval Research Code 353, to provide expertise in the area of fiber-reinforced plastic FRP composites for bridge structures. As part of this effort, NFESC was asked to provide technical oversight and prepare a state-of-the-art report on FRP composite bridges to compare the proposed work with current and emerging technologies. This report presents some of the latest research in composites for FRP bridge components, in particular bridge decks, and provides examples of recent research, demonstrations, and installations of FRP bridge components.
