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
