Job Site Evaluation of Corrosion Resistant Alloys


As part of IBRC, a three-year study was performed by Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to document the projects that employed corrosion-resistant reinforcements and to provide an evaluation of their use. Specific project objectives were as listed below:

  1. Provide a summary of the different alternative reinforcement products that have become available and which are being used in bridge construction.
  2. Provide a summary of representative IBRC projects that have employed corrosion-resistant reinforcements.
  3. Acquire samples of the alternative reinforcement employed in IBRC projects from the different job sites and characterize these in terms of mechanical properties, uniformity, conformance to specification (where applicable), and performance in accelerated corrosion tests.
  4. Establish a repository for the acquired reinforcement samples and preserve these as an archival record and reference for historical documentation purposes
