Abstract:
The aim of this thesis was to derive a means by which pavements can be kept free of ice by a method that is non-salt based. Non-salt is termed as the group of chemicals used as part of winter maintenance procedures. These procedures are used to mitigate ice and snow on road surfaces. De-icing which is a reactive measure and anti-icing which is precautionary describe the function of winter maintenance. The latter has been shown to be most efficient.
