Abstract:
Every segment of the transportation industry is experiencing maintenance problems with rapidly deteriorating portland cement concrete structures. The Federal Highway Administration, aware of such problems, has sponsored research and development work to find a rapid-setting durable composite that can be used to repair deteriorated concrete and/or to effectively reduce chloride and moisture penetration into concrete.
