Due to the short construction season in Wyoming, contractors must complete many transportation projects on a tight schedule. Unfortunately, contractors often cannot create accurate schedules considering logical work ordering, reasonable productivity, and weather events. Inaccurate baseline schedules...

 

A mechanical bar splice, also known as bar coupler, is an alternative to the traditional lap splicing to connect bars in reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Even though mechanical bar splices can be used as new precast column connections to accelerate bridge construction (ABC), the use of bar couplers...

 

Precast concrete construction has been proven to be very efficient in bridge engineering, especially in accelerated bridge construction (ABC), where precast concrete components are connected to save time and minimize disruption of traffic. Post-tensioned (PT) concrete structural elements, when combined...

 

Local governments have an immediate need for low life-cycle cost bridge replacement alternatives. Knowledge of available alternatives and construction planning processes hold potential for South Dakota local governments to replace more structurally deficient local bridges with limited funds. Through...

 

The Rocky Mountain Region has experienced considerable difficulty because of alkali-silica reaction (ASR) in concrete construction. Wyoming Department of Transportation was successful in using recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) on Interstate I-80 with limited ASR damage. Reusing concrete from demolition...

 

This report discusses the design and implementation of surcharging technology and the required laboratory, field, and engineering evaluations. It is hoped that such information will provide a more consistent and technically defensible rationale for deploying this technology on highway projects constructed...

 

Construction of highways usually requires large areas of land disturbance, which may result in accelerated soil erosion. The stormwater runoff from highway construction sites typically contains a large amount of fine particles that are difficult to remove using conventional best management practices....

 

This study evaluates the seismic performance of circular concrete-filled tube (CCFT) columns in accelerated bridge construction (ABC) projects. CCFT components are considered of interest for bridges subjected to seismic forces due to their efficient structural behavior under combined axial and bending...

 

The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) allows the use of precast double-tee bridges in counties because they are economical and fast in construction. Alternative durable prefabricated bridge systems are needed to provide more options to local governments. The present study was carried...

 

Compared with conventional lap splicing, mechanical splicing is an alternative method of connecting bars in reinforced concrete (RC) structures, and is used mainly to reduce bar congestion in joints. Recently, mechanical bar splices, which are also referred to as bar couplers, have been used in laboratories...
