CONSIDERATIONS FOR REPAIRING SALT DAMAGED BRIDGE DECKS

From the wide differences in types, or methods, of salt damaged bridge deck restorations being practiced, it is suspected that a wide difference in philosophy, beliefs or expected results exist among the practitioners. The short performance history of bridge deck restorations provides little information for the decision makers. Increased communications between researchers should be beneficial in narrowing the philosophy differences and in providing the decision maker with more cost-effective guidance. It is with this in mind that the author discusses factors to be considered when planning a deck restoration. The most important of these factors is the initial cause of the damage and the effect the restoration will have on this cause. /Author/
