Title: Holistic Approach to the Corrosion of Concrete in Aqueous Environments Using Indices of Aggressiveness
Author(s): J. J. Basson and B. J. Addiss
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 33-66
Keywords: cements; coatings; corrosion; deterioration; environments; leaching; salts; spalling; tests; water; water-cement ratio; Materials Research
Abstract:Mechanisms of corrosion of concrete have been extensively studied and elucidated by various workers, but rate-determining factors have been neglected, as have the interactions between different corrodents. However, by considering all relevant influences as part of the total corrosive environment, it is possible to quantify aggressiveness as indexes and use them to select the appropriate technology for the circumstances under consideration.
