Description of Research
Dr. Fagundo's research involves behavior of prestressed segmental concrete bridges: Study of flal-slab segmental post-tensioned system to serve as replacement for standard highway overpass. A half-scale model has been tested under service and limit state loads for positive and negative bending. If implemented it could have a significant impact on cost reductions and aesthetic improvement over current alternatives.

He is also doing research on temperature effects on epoxy-coated bonded strands: The effect of curing and ambient temperatures on the bond characteristics of epoxy-coated strands have been evaluated. A standard testing procedure has been established, design requirements have been developed, and bond characteristics have been correlated with external temperatures.
