Post-Tensioned Bridges: Diagnosing & Remediating Corrosive Conditions
Dallas Montgomery, PE
Lurking beneath the surface of otherwise visibly sound concrete bridges lies a potentially significant disease causing corrosion and deterioration. If left untreated, it can lead to a shorter-than-planned effective service life and reduced load carrying capacity for post-tensioned bridges.
In this paper, we’ll examine post-tensioned (PT) bridges and the importance of diagnosing and remediating corrosive conditions.
