NCHRP 14-36(01) Implementation of Bridge Preservation Actions
Sponsor: National Academies of Science, Engineering, Medicine, TRB
PI: Greenman-Pedersen Inc (GPI)
Co-PI: University of Colorado
Co-PI: University of South Florida (Haber)
Funding Level: $300,000
Summary: This project aim to develop and deliver workshops for state departments of transportation (DOTs) and local public agencies to support the implementation of bridge preservation practices outlined in the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Guide to Bridge Preservation Actions (2021) and the AASHTO Guide to Preservation of Highway Bridge Decks (pending publication)
Splicing Solutions for Non-Conventional Reinforcing Bars in Concrete
Sponsors: Splice Sleeve North America & Florida High Tech Corridor
PI: University of South Florida (Haber)
Funding Level: $137,000
Summary: This project aim to develop mechanical splice technology for reinforcing bars composed of non-conventional materials such as high-strength steel and fiber reinforced polymers (FRP). The project includes product development, experimental testing, and evaluation of structural behavior. This project also aims to spur economic growth in Florida thanks to funds provided by the Florida High Tech Corridor.
Determining Fiber Orientation and Volume of Ultra-High Performance Concrete using Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy
Sponsors: University of South Florida
PI: University of South Florida (Alexander & Haber)
Summary: Fiber orientation in ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) is a critical factor that relates to both material- and structural-level behavior. This research aims to explore electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) to determine fiber orientation and fiber volume in UHPC-class materials. This project is a collaboration with Dr. Chris Alexander and the USF Corrosion Lab.
