Chapter 4 - Producing Silica-Fume Concrete
Finishing Bridge Decks

Previous Next
This section of the presentation describes the finishing process for bridge decks. Actually, the procedure for bridge decks may be thought of as the precursor for the one-pass technique that was described for silica-fume flatwork. The most significant difference is that much of the work of finishing on a bridge deck is done by a specialized machine that consolidates, screeds, and finishes as it moves along the deck.
