UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI INNOVATION BRIDGE, 95% OF THIS BRIDGE IS CONSTRUCTED WITH OUR No Rust Rebar Inc. BASALT FIBER / EPOXY REINFORCEMENTS.
Stiff, totally non rusting 10.25” x 40’ piling cage weighs only 140 lbs. and can be carried by 2 people.
The eight, 16-in. diameter, 40 ft.-long auger-cast piles are reinforced with a prefabricated cage of six # 6 bars and spirals made with basalt fibers (BFRP). The cages (in the shape of an octagon) were prefabricated at the composite manufacturer plant and delivered to the site, ready for installation. This type of application is a world “first” and takes advantage of precision manufacturing.
The cast-in-place, 3-in. concrete deck topping was reinforced with a grid of RockRebar™ bars. Woven bridge deck reinforcement.
