AASHTO Journal, 8 February 2013
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has released its latest AASHTO Publications Catalog (Volume 1, 2013). The new publications catalog features the following new AASHTO publications:
These specifications present provisions for the analysis and design of concrete-filled fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) tubes (CFFT) for use as structural components in bridges. Design methodology allows CFFTs to be designed as flexural members, axial compression members, or members subjected to combined flexural and axial compression in addition to shear. CFFT bridge components may include beams, arches, columns, and piles.
These specifications, which supplement the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, are intended for the repair and strengthening of reinforced and pre-stressed highway bridge structures using externally bonded fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite systems.
