ACI-ITG-3-04 Report on Bridge Decks Free of Steel Reinforcement

$80.50 $72.45

ACI-ITG-3-04 Report on Bridge Decks Free of Steel Reinforcement outlines procedures for the design of bridge decks free of steel reinforcement and requirements for design and installation of straps to restrain rotation of edge beams to achieve arching action in a deck slab.

The concept for the design of a steel-free bridge deck slab described in this report is patented. Therefore, use of the information in this document may require payment of royalties to the owners of the patents. At the time of printing, the United States and the United Kingdom have granted a patent for the steel-free cast-in-place bridge deck slabs, with a patent pending in Canada. The steel-free precast slab is also patented in the United States, and the global patent is pending. Interested parties are invited to submit information regarding the identification of an alternative(s) to this patented item to ACI Headquarters. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible standards committee, which you may attend.

The American Concrete Institute takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this report. Users of this report are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.

The inventor of the reinforcement-free bridge deck concept described in this report sponsored preparation of the report and provided reimbursement to the authors to assist in recovery of their costs and expenses related to travel to meetings; however, none of the authors received an honorarium.
