Cost efficiency for concrete construction
An edge beam made by the Custone-method resists chloride damages 3-5 times longer than those beams that are made by current methods. Thus, during the calculated lifetime of a bridge (100 years) at least 1 or 2 maintenance visits can be skipped or remarkably lighter repairing procedures will be needed. This will bring remarkable savings in repair costs in the future.
The same method can be applied to bridge decks, ground supports, pillars, etc. In brief, to all those items that are exposed to salting and damages caused by it.
