Parking structure deterioration: NH18-1/399-1984E-PDF

a survey and analysis of its extent and influencing factors.

"The deterioration of parking structures is now a cause of serious alarm. The main problem is corrosion caused by road salt and water which penetrate the concrete. Construction and environmental factors and maintenance procedures are the key elements in this deterioration. The problem is widespread and estimates place the cost of damage to the country's inventory of parking structures in the range of $1 billion to $3 billion. This present study, a survey and analysis of the extent of deterioration in over 300 parking structures and the factors influencing this deterioration, delineates the technical dimensions of the problem and offers some guidelines for ameliorating the condition of existing structures and preventing the problem in new structures"--Executive summary, p. ii.
