AN ACCELERATED LABORATORY METHOD FOR CORROSION TESTING OF REINFORCED CONCRETE USING IMPRESSED CURRENT

This report presents a laboratory method to determine the corrosion resistant properties of reinforced concrete. The method is an accelerated impresse current test which measures time to failure of reinforced concrete specimens. Research testing indicates that this test may be used to determine materials which will significantly improve the corrosion resistant properties of reinforced concrete. /FHWA/
