Abstract:

Sodium chloride, calcium chloride, or magnesium chloride anti-icing brines are more efficient at preventing ice build-up on roads than rock salt crystals. However, as shown in various studies, they can be detrimental to concrete and promote scaling or joint deterioration. This article presents results of a 5-year evaluation of mechanical properties of concrete cylinders immersed in four anti-icing brines and tested in compression.

Abstract:

The damage rating index (DRI) is among the most promising microscopy methods for condition assessment of concrete infrastructures. However, it requires experts to perform time-consuming petrographic microscopy of samples. The article discusses a study aimed at automating DRI assessments using machine learning (ML). It is expected that ML will reduce the subjectively yet increase the speed, reproducibility, accessibility, and accuracy of DRI determination.
