About the research

The accelerated deterioration of concrete bridge decks has caused significant problems in the management and maintenance of the highway infrastructure. Recently various systems have been proposed that use no reinforcing steel in the bridge deck. The objective of this work is to monitor and evaluate the performance of one such bridge.
