    Abstract

    It is obviously important to be able to quantify the status of deterioration of a reinforced concrete structure during its lifetime, to assess the need for repair, to assess the performance of protection mechanisms in existence, and to assess the need for application of protection methods. The study of mechanistic phenomena, or of proposed ameliorative measures, in the laboratory likewise requires measurement techniques. An array of methods are available, ranging from the very mundane to the highly sophisticated; several of these are of practical use only in the laboratory at this particular stage, but do offer promise for field use in later stages. Further, most of the currently available techniques have been developed for highway structures, and only some of them have been transferred over into other areas.
