Document: 

SP49-04

Date: 

January 1, 1975

Author(s):

Bernard Erlin and George J. Verbeck

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

49

Abstract:

The electrochemical and physical mechanisms causing the corrosion of steel in concrete are known. There is, however, a need for information that will more specifically characterize the effects of individual factors that initiate corrosion, and for methods that can be used to stop the corrosion process once it has begun.

Abstract:

A corrosion inhibitor is an admixure that is used in concrete to keep the metal embedded in the concrete from corroding. The theory of and types of inhibitors as well as a method for evaluating inhibitors are discussed. Investigations to date are laboratory efforts. Real-life situations revealing results of inhibitors; corrosion resistance; mix proportioning; reinforced concrete

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

49

Abstract:

Coatings are sometimes considered for steel that is to be embedded in concrete when the structures will be exposed to moderately or highly corrosive conditions. There are numerous benefits possible by the addition of a protective coating to the steel, as well as several disadvantages. The desirability of use of a coating is open to serious question.

SP49-02

Date: 

January 1, 1975

Author(s):

Francis X. Crowley

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

49

Abstract:

The author provides a brief history of the original use of shotcrete to provide corrosion protection for spirally wound prestressed shotcrete and concrete tanks. In addition, various failures are described along with reason for the failures. Details are also given of steps that must be taken to insure permanent corrosion protection for the wire.
