EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS ON MACROCELL CORROSION IN CHLORIDE-CONTAMINATED CONCRETE

Given the large dimensions of real structures most practical problems of reinforcement corrosion usually involve some kind of macrocell action in which anodic and cathodic regions on the steel surface are spatially separated. The existence of macrocells is a phenomenon usually not encountered in the small test-sized specimens that are normally studied in the laboratory. Despite the practical significance of macrocell corrosion to reinforced concrete deterioration, relatively little effort has been directed towards investigating this type of corrosion. In the following experimental investigations are described aimed at elucidating and quantifying macrocell corrosion in chloride-contaminated concrete.
