RELIABILITY OF CHLORIDE ANALYSIS IN DETERMINING THE CORROSIVITY OF CONCRETE

The Civil Engineering Division of the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management takes charge of most of the Dutch major infrastructural engineering facilities. For rehabilitation of reinforced concrete structures it is necessary to analyze the chloride content of concrete samples in the laboratory. In recent years The Civil Engineering Division was frequently confronted with conflicting results from these laboratory investigations. This highly undesirable situation has resulted in a research project in which a comparative multi-laboratory investigation was executed using standardized pulverized concrete samples with known chloride content. The reported results from chloride contents together with the results from a questionnaire were examined with respect to analysis technique, procedures, accuracy and reproducibility.
