barriers to implementation of current frp deck systems
Barriers to Implementation of Current FRP Deck Systems
  • The initial cost is higher than traditional materials
  • All current systems are proprietary, hindering the ability to obtain competitive prices and standard methods
  • There have been some issues with the durability of wearing surfaces
  • There are relatively few suppliers

2

benefits of the proposed deck system
Benefits of the Proposed Deck System
  • Hybrid nature makes efficient use of materials
  • A lightweight deck replacement can improve the load capacity of an existing bridge
  • Quality can be enhanced by manufacturing in a factory environment using ISO-9001 criteria
  • Life cycle cost of the bridge can be reduced
  • Ease of installation
  • Automated fabrication process can reduce manufacturing costs and improve cost-competitiveness

benefits of the proposed deck system1
Benefits of the Proposed Deck System
  • Improves long-term durability through the use of corrosion-resistant materials
  • Use of modular components fabricated away from the project site reduces exposure time during installation to
    • enhance motorist and worker safety
    • decrease traffic congestion
  • Non-proprietary system

4

project deliverables
Project Deliverables
  • Improved materials and manufacturing methods that reduce cost
  • Demonstration of connection details that will provide long term durability
  • Documentation of how to install a functional wearing surface
