Transportation Symposium Webinar Series: Failure Projection for Corroding Bridge Post-Tensioning Tendons

February 11 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Failure Projection for Corroding Bridge Post-Tensioning Tendons

Corrosion induced failure of bridge post-tensioning (PT) tendons has become a concern, not only for Florida DOT, but for transportation agencies worldwide. In response to this, a FHWA sponsored research project developed a methodology for projecting such failures given corrosion rate distribution statistics for individual wires and strands. This protocol is reviewed, and example analyses are provided along with insight regarding recently developed technologies for characterizing corrosion state of tendons. Recommendations are made moving forward for PT bridge integrity assurance.

Presenters: William H. Hartt, Teddy Theryo

The Transportation Symposium 2020 has been converted to the Transportation Symposium Webinar series (Virtual format).

In an effort to continue to keep staff and our industry partners up-to-date with DOT policies, procedures and best practices we will be developing and implementing the Transportation Symposium Webinar Series, which will be providing weekly Symposium sessions starting June 9, 2020. PDH credits will be offered for the live version of the webinar. The recorded version will be posted to view at a later date.

If you need special accommodations under the American with Disabilities Act or require translation services (free of charge) please contact Brad Bradley at 850-414-4295 or brad.bradley@dot.state.fl.us at least seven days before the webinar.
