EFFECT OF SALT ON REINFORCED CONCRETE HIGHWAY BRIDGES AND PAVEMENTS

THE DETERIORATION OF BRIDGE DECK CONCRETE HAS CAUSED SERIOUS CONCERN AMONG HIGHWAY ENGINEERS FOR SEVERAL YEARS. CONSIDERABLE RESEARCH HAS BEEN UNDERTAKEN TO DETERMINE THE CAUSES FOR THIS DETERIORATION. IT IS GENERALLY AGREED THAT SURFACE SPALLING IS THE MOST SERIOUS AND ANNOYING TYPE OF DISTRESS FOUND IN BRIDGE DECKS. SEVERAL RECENT RESEARCH REPORTS INDICATE THAT CORROSION OF REINFORCING STEEL IS OFTEN A FACTOR IN THE OCCURRENCE OF SURFACE SPALLS. THE VARIOUS FACTORS THAT MAY CONTRIBUTE TO CORROSION OF REINFORCEMENT ARE DISCUSSED. /AUTHOR/
