Terms of the Trade: What is Spalling?

old concrete surface with chips and cracks

Spalling is the process of chunks cracking and chipping off a hard surface like a concrete wall. This process can be the result of long-term exposure to corrosive effects like weather and aging, or from physical impacts, either large and sudden or small and repeated. The flakes of material that have broken off can be referred to as spall.
