SP102 As a designer you need the wealth of information presented in "Corrosion, Concrete and Chlorides -- Steel Corrosion in Concrete: Causes and Restraints," a compilation of 11 papers covering the corrosion phenomenon. Prompted by the nationwide corrosion problem with concrete, there have been extensive field and laboratory investigations into the specific phenomena that induce corrosion, methods for identifying the magnitude and extent of corrosion in structures, techniques for stabilizing corrosion once it has begun, and design of structures and concretes so that corrosion will not occur. Presenting an in-depth analysis into a variety of aspects dealing with corrosion, this state-of-the-art publication includes such topics as: the marked influence of chloride in causing corrosion, ways for controlling corrosion by using chloride-free accelerators, the reduction of chloride penetration through the use of pozzolanic blast-furnace slag as an admixture in concrete, and the conductive coating aspects of cathodic protection. "Corrosion, Concrete and Chlorides" provides important answers to a complex problem.
