Abstract or Summary
  • During the interstate expansion of the 1950s, many conventionally reinforced concrete deck girder bridges were built throughout the country. These now vintage bridges commonly exhibit diagonal cracking and rate inadequately for shear, thus they are candidates for shear strengthening to extend their useful life. Near-surface mounted (NSM) retrofitting is a promising new strengthening technique, but limited test data are available for carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) in shear strengthening making the long-term durability of NSM-CFRP unknown. This paper provides experimental results from realistic full-scale specimens strengthened with NSM-CFRP. Specimens were tested for shear strength and subjected to environmental exposures to assess long-term durability. Small cylinder specimens were tested to investigate relative performance of different adhesives on bond strength under different environmental exposures. Test results provide a better understanding of the NSM-CFRP shear behavior and strength. Recommendations for shear strength design with NSM-CFRP are made.
