Corrosion Of Steel In Concrete: Understanding, Investigation And Repair by John P. Broomfield
Corrosion of steel in concrete : understanding, investigation, and repair
Arabian Journal for Science and Engineering. Corrosion of reinforcement is one of the major durability challenges which leads to a reduction in the design life of reinforced concrete. Due to an increasing demand for longer service lives of infrastructure typically — years and the high cost involved in building and maintaining it, the repair of concrete structures has become extremely important. This paper discusses mechanism of corrosion in reinforced concrete and its thermodynamic and kinetic behaviour. It also presents and compares different corrosion prevention and protection techniques available and recommended by BS , including the use of corrosion inhibitors, alternative reinforcement, steel and concrete coating and electrochemical techniques. It is concluded that the electrochemical techniques are more effective than conventional methods. Unable to display preview.

John P. Broomfield is a leading expert on the corrosion of steel in concrete structures. Corrosion of Steel in Concrete provides information on corrosion of steel in atmospherically exposed concrete structures and serves as a guide for those designing, constructing and maintaining buildings, bridges and all reinforced concrete structures. This new edition incorporates the new European standards as well as USA and other international standards. It also covers developments in galvanic and impressed current cathodic protection, new electrochemical techniques such as electro-osmosis, and stainless steel clad reinforcing bars.
