Access Period: 30 days


This course will focus on recent advances in our understanding of how chemical deicers impact the durability of concrete pavements. Designers, engineers, contractors, and owners should have an interest in this session. Recent changes in the use of chemicals for deicing and anti-icing have led to noticeable diminution in the durability of concrete pavements and exterior flatwork. New research focused on understanding the nature of the mechanisms associated with this deterioration may help develop new strategies for mitigation in the future.
