SEACON and Resilient FRP-RC/PC Solutions: The Halls River Bridge

M. Rossini, T. Cadenazzi, S. Nolan, A. Nanni

Abstract

The SEACON project features the University of Miami (UM), the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), along with European partners (Politecnico di Milano) and representative of the industrial sector working toward the development of innovative material solutions to address sustainability and resilience challenges in construction. The project aims to develop sustainable concrete solutions using seawater and chloride-contaminated aggregates. An integral component involves validating Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) and stainless steel (SS) as non-corrosive reinforcement for Reinforced Concrete (RC) and Prestressed Concrete (PC) applications. The Halls River Bridge (HRB) features large-scale implementation of innovative materials. It showcases the SEACON research outcomes and serves as a proof-of-concept for the validation of design philosophies to be included in the new generation of FRP design guidelines. This paper speaks about the issues of design of a non-corrosive FRP-RC/PC structure. HRB is presented as a successful case study.
