Status:  Complete
Report Date:  11/15/2011


Cracking in bridge decks has been a main concern of bridge designers and owners for decades. Various contributing factors have been identified but their relationships are not fully understood. The Minnesota Department of Transportation has collected data during construction of bridges between the dates of approximately July 2005 and present. The data includes construction practices and environmental conditions during construction, and bridge inspection results. To prepare for a larger study to analyze this data, this synthesis examines previous studies for the causative factors of bridge deck cracking.
