Abstract:

The patent describes an asphaltic concrete mix that is electrically conductive. The passage of an electric current through an electrically conductive asphaltic concrete surface generates sufficient heat within the surface to prevent the accumulation of snow and ice thereon. The asphaltic concrete is made electrically conductive by incorporating graphite particles within the concrete mix. Author
