State-of-the-Art Report on Full-Depth Precast Concrete Bridge Deck Panels is relevant for both new bridge deck construction and bridge deck replacement and is a guide for selecting, designing, detailing and constructing precast full-depth deck panels for bridge construction. The report consists of four parts:
- An introduction to the relatively new technology of full-depth precast bridge deck panel systems.
- Information on typical practice including transverse and longitudinal design and including design examples.
- Examples of successful detailing including transverse joints, horizontal shear connection, leveling and temporary support and haunch details between beam and deck.
- Information on the production, handling, and construction of full-depth precast deck panels including quality control, construciton operations and protection systems.
