The initial work on this chapter was done by Hubert Woods, a concrete consultant who is now deceased. The chapter was published 27 years ago in ASTM STP 169A. A current search of the literature by the John Crerar Library of the University of Chicago for the effects of concrete on embedded nonferrous metals revealed little new information than reported previously in this chapter. What has been located can be found herein. The basic principals of chemistry and physics do not change; hence the response of materials to their environment is the same now as it was when this chapter was originally written. And, in spite of lessons learned, or because of a different environmental exposure or some peculiarity thereof, adverse performance may occur. Let caution be a guiding light in material usages, and let a value of the principals that make embedded materials stable a code of use.
