qThis report documents research performed to develop recommended revisions to the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications to extend the applicability of the transfer, development, and splice length provisions for prestressed and non-prestressed concrete members to concrete strengths greater than 10 ksi. The report details the research performed and includes recommended revisions to the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. The material in this report will be of immediate interest to bridge designers.q--Foreword.... should be recorded: exterior dimensions, the location of structural/tensile reinforcement (including the effective depth), bottom/top cover, side cover, ... 2.5 Summary Based on the results of the literature review conducted in this chapter, the experimental plan for NCHRP Project 12-60 was refined and carried out with the approval from the project panel. The results of the entire experimental program for both strand and mild steel are presented and discussed in Chapter 3 of this report.
