• Review of NCDOT Practices for Analyzing Overhang Falsework

    NCDOT Research Project Number: 2004-13

 Executive Summary

  • An effort by NCDOT to produce standardized details for bridge overhang falsework has identified a need to review the current analysis and design procedures adopted by the department. The review is necessary to ensure that the analysis procedures and the design assumptions integrated into the current guidelines are not too restrictive and that they are in compliance with the latest ACI and AASHTO specifications.​

    The primary objectives of the proposed research are to provide a comprehensive review of the current procedures used by the NCDOT to analyze bridge deck overhang falsework and to evaluate the appropriateness of the NCDOT design assumptions. Comments and recommendations for improvement and modification of the current analysis and design procedures will be provided.​

    The proposed research will provide a direct benefit in construction cost savings and submittal review time required by NCDOT personnel. It will also improve safety on the construction site.
