Abstract:
Elastomeric concrete, when used as a transition medium in the traffic impact area, is a simplistic low-profile concept that vulcanizes permanently to the structural concrete of the bridge deck. This procedure has proven effective in waterproofing the problematic expansion joint areas while providing a unique impact-attenuating transition solution.
