SPR-3864: Performance of Deicing Salts and Deicing Salt Cocktails

The focus of this study is on how the composition of different salts interact with cementitious paving binders to form deleterious reactions that can cause damage. The objective of this research is to develop guidance (a test procedure or rules of thumb) that can be used to quantify the extent of the expansive reaction that occurs. This information will be used to improve pavement binder selection that reduces the potential for joint deterioration given the salt and salt cocktails most likely to be used in Indiana. This data will also provide information on the salts in this process.
