METHODOLOGY FOR THE PROTECTION AND REHABILITATION OF REINFORCED CONCRETE BRIDGE COMPONENTS WITH CHLORIDE-INDUCED CORROSION

This paper describes a recently developed procedure for use by bridge engineers making protection or rehabilitation decisions for concrete bridges. The methodology determines the most cost-effective treatment, and its timing, for specific components. It is available from SHRP in the form of both a handbook and a computer program. The handbook approach is described in this paper. The work was sponsored as the final in a series of SHRP projects related to concrete deterioration from chloride-induced corrosion of the reinforcing steel.
