ACI Greater Michigan Chapter
The ACI Greater Michigan Chapter, and our meeting sponsor, the Edw. C. Levy Co. invite you to join us Tuesday, May 9th, for a comprehensive look at Deicer Induced Distress in concrete pavements. Concrete is the material of choice for pavements given its inherent durability and low life-cycle cost. However, in some severe exposures, concrete durability can be compromised. For pavements in cold climates like Michigan, the most severe exposure comes from the use of various deicing salts. Use of these chemicals has contributed significantly to premature joint deterioration in concrete pavements. Our speaker, Larry Sutter will summarize the research performed to identify the specific deterioration mechanisms involved in joint deterioration and present possible engineering solutions. The meeting will then be opened up for general discussion.
Speaker: Larry Sutter, is a Professor in the Materials Science & Engineering Department at Michigan Technological University, specializing in materials characterization, concrete durability, and the use of supplementary cementitious materials. He also serves as Director of the Michigan Department of Transportation Materials Research Center at Michigan Tech. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Michigan.
