Finding Articles in HPC Bridge Views
Susan N. Lane, Portland Cement Association
As of this issue, 256 articles have appeared in HPC Bridge Views. These articles have covered a vast array of project, structural, and material characteristics. There are now two ways that you can find the HPC Bridge Views article that best fits your needs. The first way to find articles is to go to the HPC Bridge Views' website at http://www.hpcbridgeviews.com/directory.asp. This directory currently provides six pages listing articles in groups of twelve issues. However, there have been 66 issues of this publication, and it takes reading through each of the directory pages to see what topics may be of interest.

Starting with this issue, a second way of locating articles is being provided—a searchable spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is posted on the HPC Bridge Views' website and can be downloaded for your use. This article describes the grouping of the articles in the spreadsheet.

Organization of the Spreadsheet
There are 16 tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet. These identify 16 sheets with groups of articles. Each sheet displays information about the articles in that grouping (title, author, issue number, month of issue, and year of issue). The tabs are:
  • Bridges—Articles on specific bridges are listed alphabetically by bridge name.
  • ASR (Alkali-Silica Reactivity)—Articles on alkali-silica reactivity are listed and arranged numerically by year, with the most recent article appearing first.
  • Bridge Decks—Articles concerning bridge decks are listed and arranged numerically by year, with the most recent article appearing first.
  • Cements and SCMs (Supplementary Cementitious Materials)—Articles discussing cement and supplementary cementitious materials (such as fly ash, silica fume, and slag) are listed; they are arranged alphabetically by SCM/Cement topic.
  • Letters to Editor—Letters to the Editor and Author and/or Editor responses are listed; they are arranged by year of publication, with the most recent letter to the editor or response appearing first.
  • Lightweight—Articles describing lightweight concrete are listed; they are arranged by year of publication, with the most recent article appearing first.
  • Mass Concrete—Mass concrete articles are listed; they are arranged by year of publication, with the most recent article appearing first.
  • Material Properties—Articles discussing miscellaneous material properties of High Performance Concrete (HPC) are listed; they are grouped alphabetically by type of material property.
  • Misc. HPC—Miscellaneous HPC articles are listed—these are ones that do not fit in any other category of articles; they are arranged by year of publication, with the most recent article appearing first.
  • Q & A (Question and Answer)—Articles that ask a question and provide an answer on an HPC topic are listed; these are arranged alphabetically by the topic of the question.
  • SCC (Self-Consolidating Concrete)—Articles discussing self-consolidating concrete are listed; they are arranged by year of publication, with the most recent article appearing first.
  • State_Country—Articles describing HPC in a particular state of the U.S. or particular country are listed; they are arranged alphabetically by state or country.
  • Specs (Specifications)—Articles concerning specifications for HPC are listed; they are arranged by year of publication, with the most recent article appearing first.
  • Structural Properties—Articles discussing structural properties of HPC are listed; they are grouped alphabetically by type of structural property.
  • Testing Methods—Articles describing tests that can be performed on HPC are listed; these are arranged alphabetically by the property being tested.
  • UHPC (Ultra-High Performance Concrete)—Articles concerning Ultra-High Performance Concrete are listed; they are arranged by year of publication, with the most recent article appearing first.

Searching and Sorting the Spreadsheet
Searching each sheet for a particular topic or sorting each sheet by a new criterion is performed using the normal Excel options. Detailed instructions are provided on the first sheet (Summary & Help tab) of the spreadsheet.

Updates to the Spreadsheet
The spreadsheet will be updated with each issue of HPC Bridge Views, and the updated version posted on the website. New versions of the spreadsheet will have the latest issue of HPC Bridge Views in the file name.
