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.
Networking with concrete professionals is essential for successful chapters.
Local chapters are equipping college students to hit the ground running.

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.
