    Abstract: Assuming that the road infrastructure has been implemented in accordance with specifications and standards, poor adhesion between the two layers of asphalt mix can be a significant cause of pavement problems. The general problem observed with the weak adhesion between the layers is the slip failure. Slipping disruption in areas where transport acce... Show More

    Abstract: A wide variation of chloride thresholds can be found in the literature. Possible causes for this variation, which were mentioned are: method of threshold determination, cement chemistry, and concrete microstructure. Regardless of the reasons for these variations, a probabilistic method can be used to ensure the durability of reinforced concrete str... Show More
