Chapter 16: Corrosion of Reinforcing Steel


THIS VERSION OF CHAPTER 17 IN ASTM STP 169C IS an updated version of the chapter written by William F. Perenchio. In ASTM STP 169B, this chapter was authored by P. Cady. In ASTM STP 169A, this chapter was authored by B. Temper. The first three sections remained as they were with a change in Ref 1 to provide a source of more information on the subject. Substantial changes are included in the following sections to reflect more knowledge that is now available on the use of corrosion inhibitors, epoxy-coated steel, sealers, cathodic protection, and new steels. The main value of the chapter is to provide an introduction to the field and numerous references for a more in-depth understanding. The number of references has increased from 28 to 53 reflecting the increase in information available today.
