Description/Abstract

The Chloride percentages across the webs of the girders on Moore Drive Bridge, Rochester, New York have been determined using X-ray fluorescence. The percentage of Akaganeite (ß-FeOOH) was determined through X-ray diffraction and it was found to follow the same trends as the Chloride percentage. It was found that webs of girders facing incoming traffic have higher Chloride percentages than those facing away from traffic.
