STP818: Factors Influencing the Rate of Corrosion of Steel in Concrete

    Pages: 8    Published: Jan 1983


    Previous chapters have discussed the major factors which apparently influence the initiation and propagation of corrosion of steel in concrete from a mechanistic viewpoint. These factors include pH, chloride level, oxygen level, and the presence or absence of possible macrocells. This chapter discusses how these parameters are affected in concrete structures and thus how corrosion rates are governed.
