Electrically Conductive Concrete for Infrastructure Applications

Electrically conductive concrete is a cementitious admixture, which can attain stable and high electrical conductivity when connected to a power source. This material was originally developed for deicing applications to utilize the heat that can be generated due to the electrical resistance and impedance of the mix. A modified mix has developed and is being tested to evaluate its mechanical and electrical properties. This mix will be used for bridge deck deicing application in Calhoun County, MI. In addition, utilizing the conductive concrete mixture in new applications such as Electromagnetic Shielding (EMS) and Cathodic Protection of Reinforcement was investigated.
