Snowy, Icy Roads May Have Met Their Match

The Power of Heated Concrete

Yesterday we shared an article about a new self-healing concrete that is under development, but there are new innovations in progress - specifically, heated concrete.

The use of geothermic piles to melt snow and ice on Scotland's roads is underway by researchers at the University of Dundee.

Heated concrete can reduce the recent problems that snow and ice have caused on Scotland's roads. It can also stabilize roadside slopes and reduce the risk of landslips. 

A similar scheme is said to be used in Holland and the US to heat bridge surfaces and pavements, and Transport Scotland is supporting the university team in examining the technology required and its economic benefits.
