Abstract : The deterioration that is causing such concern to many city engineers in Canada takes the form of excessive scaling of the surface of concrete slabs used as sidewalks or pavements. The most serious trouble has naturally made itself evident in the pavements of busy streets where the intensity of traffic has had the effect of quickly removing the products of deterioration, leaving coarse aggregate exposed with a correspondingly rough surface which is objectionable to motorists.
