Subject(s): Online resources: Bibl.nr: VTI P1314:333Location: Abstract: Concrete bridge decks can deteriorate as a result of concrete distress from freeze-thaw dam-age, abrasion damage, alkali-aggregate reactivity, excessive cracking, or spalling caused by corrosion of the reinforcement. As concern about deterioration of concrete bridge decks from corrosion of reinforcement increased in the 1960s and 1970s, attention focused on several strategies to prevent or slow down the penetration of chlorides to the reinforcement. This synthesis report provides information on previous and current design and construction practices that have been used to improve the performance of concrete bridge decks.
