Abstract

The development of a comprehensive bridge design national standard is paramount to allow for a wider and safe deployment of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) Reinforced Concrete (RC) in the transportation infrastructure. To respond to this demand, a task force of researchers, practitioners, and transportation officials lead by the University of Miami (UM), the University of South Carolina (USC), and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), has developed a draft of the second edition of the Bridge Design Guide Specifications for GFRP-RC (BDGS-GFRP), now under consideration by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) committee T6. This paper deals with the salient contents of the document, with specific emphasis on the design of flexural members. Compared to the first edition, changes were proposed to reflect the state-of-the-art from archival literature and harmonize the design philosophy with that of other authoritative national and international standards.
