CORROSION OF HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL IN PRESTRESSED CONCRETE: 2--CORROSION STUDIES IN HIGH-STRENGTH POST-TENSIONED CONCRETE

Investigations were undertaken to ascertain the susceptibility of high-tensile steel wire to stress corrosion in an aggressive environment. The first part of the paper describes the electrochemical experiments conducted on high-tensile steel wire, while this, the second and last part of the paper, describes the accelerated corrosion tests on high-strength post-tensioned concrete. /Author/TRRL/
