PCI eLearning Course T225: Case Studies and Emerging Developments of Full-Depth Precast Concrete Deck Panels
 T225: This fourth module looks at diverse applications of existing bridges and expands the student’s imagination in solving new design challenges. The first three courses in this four-course series acquainted the student with the fundamentals necessary to appreciate the advantages and potential applications of precast concrete full-depth deck systems. However, because there is such an enormous combination of variables in the design of bridges with respect to geometry, geographic location, and construction urgency, to name a few, there can be no universal recommendations for how to utilize precast concrete decks. Given the versatility of plant produced products, the designer has considerable latitude in fitting the system to the project.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
  • Appreciate the application of full-depth deck panel systems in five diverse bridges. Using these case studies, understand the following details of the deck systems:
    • Panel-to-panel connections
    • Panel-to-girder connections
    • Traffic barrier-to-deck connections
    • Longitudinal panel joints-connections allowing staged construction
    • Details of particular interest
  • Identify several unique variations of methods and applications that continue to emerge
