Corrosion Propagation Monitoring Using Galvanotstatic Pulse on Reinforced Concrete Legacy Samples


Project

Corrosion Propagation Monitoring Using Galvanotstatic Pulse on Reinforced Concrete Legacy Samples

Team Members

Dr. Francisco Presuel-Moreno
Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering
Florida Atlantic University,

Description

The corrosion propagation stage of carbon steel rebar in high performance concrete might last longer than the typically five years usually attributed for carbon steel rebar in concrete with type I/II Portland cement as the only cementitious material. Monitoring the corrosion rate for a longer period within the propagation stage is relevant. Legacy samples are available at FAU in which corrosion propagation will be monitored using galvanostatic pulse, on samples exposed outdoors and indoors

Develop an Innovative Self-healing Concrete Technology for Bridge Deck Life Extension


Project

Develop an Innovative Self-healing Concrete Technology for Bridge Deck Life Extension

Team Members

Professor and Interim Chair
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Description

The proposed research aims to conduct pilot study to develop a self-healing concrete technology that rapidly heal the cracks by use of microorganism fungi. Fungi is selected due to its capability to rapidly cover exposed surfaces of concrete cracks with its hyphae fiber. The recovery of mechanical properties will be achieved with fungi induced bio mineralization process, which glue the cracked surfaces together. Besides, the hydrophobic nature of the fungi fiber prevents water ingression and therefore mitigates the corrosion due to deicing salt. Fast and autogenous cracking healing of concrete will extend the service life of bridge decks and bring major cost and labor savings compared with conventional treatment procedures.

Development of Environmental Response Asphalt Technology for Asphalt Pavement Life Extension

Project

Development of Environmental Response Asphalt Technology for Asphalt Pavement Life Extension

Research Team

Xiong (Bill) Yu
Professor and Interim Chair,
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering,
Case Western Reserve University

Project Description

The proposed innovation is to further develop a thermochromic asphalt technology that features a dynamic solar reflectance. The material will reflect more solar radiation at high temperature and absorbs more solar radiation at low temperature. Therefore it will make pavement cooler during hot summer days (therefore reduce the associated rutting, bleeding, etc.) and make the pavement warmer during cold winter days (therefore delay ice formation for the benefits of snow and ice removal and mitigate low temperature crack). These will improve the durability of asphalt road, improve winter maintenance, and mitigate the negative environmental impacts of conventional asphalt due to high surface temperature in summer (i.e., urban heat island effects, volatile gas emission, etc.).

Invited Speaker Webinar Series with M. Saiid Saiidi, PhD, PE., University of Reno Nevada

10:00 a.m. Pacific Time

 

Topic: “Seismic Performance of ABC (accelerated bridge construction) Bridge Systems”

Deployment of accelerated bridge construction (ABC) in high seismic zones has faced resistance due to uncertainties on seismic performance of connections between prefabricated bridge elements.  Research on development and evaluation of earthquake-resistant connections appropriate for ABC began to a limited extent over 15 years ago and intensified over the past decade.  By necessity, studies were mostly focused on component connections (known as ABC connections) such as column-footing, column cap beam, and superstructure cap beam linkage.  While the results of these studies identified appropriate details and led to preliminary design guidelines, questions still remained on the holistic seismic performance of bridges incorporating ABC connections.  Several bridge system studies in recent years have provided answers and have led to increased confidence in ABC in high seismic zones.  The presentation discusses a number of the more promising connections and how they were integrated into three, large-scale two-span bridges tested on shake tables of the University of Nevada, Reno.  The results also shed light on the relative performance of different types of ABC connections for concrete girder and steel girder bridges with a variety of column connections.

About the speaker:

Dr. Saiidi is an emeritus professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Director of Center for Advanced Technology in Bridges and Infrastructure at the University of Nevada, Reno.  He is also a distinguished research faculty at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and a principal at Infrastructure Innovation, LLC, Reno, Nevada.  He has published over 500 papers and reports and given over 400 presentations, many as a keynote speaker in over 30 countries.  Professor Saiidi’s research has been funded by the US National Science Foundation, Federal Highway Administration, US Department of Transportation, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, the California, Nevada, and Washington Departments of Transportation, and industries.  Professor Saiidi’s primary research focus has been on experimental and analytical studies of seismic response of reinforced concrete bridges, seismic retrofit, resiliency with novel materials, seismic response and design of precast bridges, and probabilistic design for seismic damage control.  He has received many awards for his research including the Outstanding Researcher Award, Established Innovator Award, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Distinguished Alumni Award among others.  He is a registered engineer in California and Nevada, and a member of the Mexican National Academy of Engineering.

About TriDurLE

About TriDurLE

The National Center for Transportation Infrastructure Durability & Life-Extension (TriDurLE) led by Washington State University is one of seven National University Transportation Centers (UTCs) sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). TriDurLE was selected in the recent nationwide competition under the FAST Act. We serve as the only National UTC with a focus on the USDOT strategic priority of “Improving the Durability and Extending the Life of Transportation Infrastructure.”

The TriDurLE consortium includes:

  • Alabama A&M University
  • Case Western Reserve University
  • Florida Atlantic University
  • Missouri University of Science and Technology
  • South Dakota State University
  • Tennessee State University
  • Texas A&M University
  • University of Colorado Denver
  • University of Utah
  • Washington State University

Each consortium member of TriDurLE brings certain unique strengths and credentials to this collaborative team and we collectively offer multidisciplinary programs engaged in innovative research, education, and technology transfer.

Center Vision

The partnerships underlying this National UTC is based on the shared vision of “cost-effective innovations and holistic solutions to enhance multimodal infrastructure durability.” TriDurLE will conduct multidisciplinary and multimodal research, education and workforce development, and technology transfer related to this vision, and will directly support the USDOT’s strategic goal of infrastructure durability & life-extension while providing secondary benefits for other relevant strategic goals such as safety, mobility, and environmental sustainability.

Center Strategic Goals

The National UTC TriDurLE is concerned with the following strategic goals, which will be the focus of the Center’s research, education, and technology transfer activities:

  • Facilitating innovations in data modeling/management, analytical tools, and decision-making related to infrastructure durability and life-extension.
  • Enhancing understanding of transportation infrastructure performance and asset management via condition monitoring and remote sensing.
  • Extending the service life of transportation infrastructure and addressing durability issues through new materials and technologies and best practices.
  • Leading the way in education, workforce development, capacity building, and technology transfer.
