SP-151 The Philip D. Cady International Symposium was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on November 9 and 10, 1993. The symposium volume includes 15 papers on concrete bridges in aggressive environments. The papers address the performance, protection, assessment, and the repair and rehabilitation of concrete bridges. The performance papers include the corrosion protection afforded by concrete bridge deck overlays, corrosion in prestressed concrete bridges, and the use of calcium nitrite in field structures. Protection papers address the performance of silane sealers, coatings, and waterproofers. Condition assessment technologies include measuring the corrosion rate of steel in concrete and the diffusion of chloride ions in bridge decks with overlays. Experiences in the repair and rehabilitation of concrete bridges by practitioners is also presented. The Philip D. Cady Symposium was sponsored by ACI Committees 345, 222, 515, and 201.
