LABORATORY AND FIELD INVESTIGATION OF THE BASIC VARIABLES INFLUENCING CORROSION OF STEEL IN CONCRETE

Basic variables which influence the corrosion of steel in concrete are investigated. The two main topics discussed are methods of corrosion testing and methods of corrosion control. Three types of test methods are presented; 1) testing of low-levels of chloride content in concrete, 2) impressed current testing, and 3) long-term testing. The methods for corrosion control are discussed in four areas; 1) concrete quality, 2) protection at the steel/concrete interface, 3) protection at the concrete surface, and 4) cathodic protection.
