    Abstract

    This report presents a systematic long-term field study of corrosion in soil of carbon steel and steel coated with zinc and an aluminium-zinc alloy (55% Al/Zn). Exposure is taking place in seven localities with different types of soil. In the report, the effects on corrosion of the groundwater table, embedment in sandfill, soil pH, type of soil, specimen size, and time of exposure are evaluated. The results are based on up to four years of exposure.
