Millport Slough Bridge | Lincoln County, Oregon | 2010

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymers (GFRP) rebar was used for the construction of this new structure situated in the Siletz Bay, a Federally protected estuary, on the Oregon Coast Highway 101
Morristown Smart Bridge built with a fully reinforced GFRP rebar deck.

Morristown Smart Bridge built with a fully reinforced GFRP rebar deck.

A girder type bridge with a 9 in. thick concrete slab deck spanning 144ft. This is the first bridge deck worldwide, of this size and category, where the concrete slab was fully reinforced with GFRP reinforcing bars. Additionally 12 fiber optic sensors were installed, classifying it as a Smart Bridge.

SlenderWall With Nycon-PVA Fiber Reinforcement

During the month of March, 2013, a 12 ft. x 16 ft. SlenderWall panel, containing Nycon PVA RSC15 fiber reinforcement in the 2 inches of architectural precast, successfully completed a series of demanding dynamic tests performed by National Certified Testing Laboratories of York, PA.
The Winning Entry: Nycon PVA Fibers Make a Tough and Durable Concrete Canoe

The Winning Entry: Nycon PVA Fibers Make a Tough and Durable Concrete Canoe

Nycon PVA RMS702 fibers led to Cal Poly’s winning entry. This was due to the low weight and a high flexural strength of the concrete mixture.

Cal Poly specifically stated in their design paper that “[Nycon] 6 mm PVA fibers, assisted in reducing micro-cracking and increasing the durability of the canoe.”
