Shear Capacity of Prestressed Concrete Bridge Girders

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  11/30/2007

Summary:

Design specifications of shear reinforcement requirements in prestressed concrete bridges have changed significantly. Researchers load-tested to failure a girder that was built to older design codes and evaluated its shear capacity. They also examined how to judge the shear capacity of other bridges designed to older specifications.
