NCHRP Project 10-72 - Bridge Deck Design Criteria and Testing Procedures

Although not often recognized for their significance by the motoring public, deck elements of highway bridges are important components for an efficient highway system. Robust performance of these components over the long-term is critical for smooth daily traffic operations as well as adequate bridge system performance during extreme events.
