This design procedure has been adopted and employed by the WVDOH as well as many other state agencies. Recent decking issues, specifically extensive full depth cracking, have led to concerns about other bridges in the inventory and future ones to be constructed. Thus, this project was initiated with the goals of assessing the current design practices of WVDOH bridge decks.LITERATURE REVIEW 2.1 Background on Empirical Design Historically, reinforced concrete bridge deck design has been conducted using an equivalent strip method ... 1997) has focused primarily on how to make deck design more efficient.
