AbstractDeterioration of indoor parking garages has become a very serious problem in recent years. In many cases, major repairs are needed after only five years of service. The cause of the deterioration is usually corrosion of the reinforcing steel due to the action of de-icing salts carried in by the vehicles. The process of deterioration and methods of improving durability are provided.
